Who doesn't love a bit of satire? Step up English speakers, we all love some scathing political jokes! Crack Up – Crack Down, an exhibition put together by the art collective Slavs and Tatars focuses on satire and its power to humour us but to also be a tool of political opposition (or sometimes its failings in opposition). The first edition was presented at the 33rd Biennial of Graphic Art in Ljubljana, now at the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art, but in Warsaw, the graphic genre has been expanded to include new Polish contexts. The exhibition showcases a broad spectrum of works, in both historical and contemporary contexts, including satirical magazines, academic sources and even activist works. See works by artists from Slovenia, Ukraine, Georgia, Bulgaria, but also China, Iran, UK, and the US. Polish artists include Bolesław ChromryRafał DominikJana Shostak and Jacqueline Sobiszewski. The role of satire too is questioned in the modern day context, is it effective in the face of the rise of populism and revanchism? Hmm, makes ya think!
