The Fixers

Open 10:00-16:00. Sun 10:00-18:00, Closed Mon.       ul. Traugutta 111/113
Wrocław's Ethnographic Museum presents an exhibition, dedicated to fix­ers - the people whose activity exemplifies various historical and current aspects of repairing and mending.

Demonstrating an approach of using things in the rural and urban communities of the past, these methods are hoped to pro­vide inspiration for contemporary advocates and practitioners of the idea of zero waste. Today, recycling and upcycling are popular design trends. It is not a passing fashion but a responsible reaction to pressing environmental concerns about the condition of planet Earth.

In the past, the self-sufficiency of rural communities was based on practical knowledge of materials, like wood, metal or clay.
Things were self-made and fixed when needed. The exhibition’s title also pertains to “fixers” as individuals capable of seeing in objects a potential extending beyond their original function. Repairing is a technical activity that has both physical and metaphysical, symbolical dimensions. The exhibition demonstrates both traditional methods of repairing and attempts at ma­nipulating the object’s history or identity.
