Open 12:00-20:00. Closed Mon.       Pl. Małachowskiego 3

The exhibition is comprised of seven films by both well known and less known artists, which tell a story of human alienation in today's technology-obsessed world. The films focus on the hypocrisy of today's politics, which tend to ignore racial and gender differences, as well as omnipresent violence, greed and progressive isolation from nature and its devastation. It was Joseph Conrad at the turn of the century who pointed out the dark side of the so-called progress - imperialism, terrorism and exploitation leading to dehumanisation. The exhibited works warn against the present trend of escapism into material wealth at the cost of alienation. They encourage to find strength in our own humanity, restore dignity and equal treatment of every human being. If not - the fire will follow. The artists are - John Akomfrah, Allora & Calzadilla, Yuri Ancarani, Clément Cogitore, Camille Henrot, Arthur Jafa and Angelika Markul.
