ANNA MOLSKA

THE WEAVERS

 

Polish artist, Anna Molska (b. 1983, Prudnik), explores modernist and socialist utopias through her work, and uses them as a pretext for the analysis of contemporary reality.

Molska’s 12 minute film The Weavers (2009) is based on Gerhart Hauptmann’s 1892 play inspired by the 1844 rebellion of Silesian weavers against the poverty of their lives and harsh working conditions. The play is also the subject of a series of prints currently being shown at Ikon that established Käthe Kollwitz’s reputation as a major artistic figure in Germany before the First World War.
