Wroclaw: Tiff Festival
September 3, 2015 - September 13, 2015
We are proud to announce that we’ve become a Media Partner of Tiff Festival
Polish photography has never been in a better state than now. Worldwide awards, festivals and exhibitions. They notice us on the outside, we notice ourselves. A word that comes to my mouth is: “Finally!”
Our country creates photos with full steam – everyone is a photographer and galleries and festivals appear at an unheard of rate. What has actually happened and how was it possible since author of one of this year’s exhibitions claims that photography is dead. What is its current state in Poland?

The exhibition is a survey of the attitudes of photographers focused on the medium and its surroundings. Every artist is presented through a single photograph. The exhibition takes the form of an “exquisite corpse” or a surreal game of conveying the picture to another artists, which is further interpreted and finalized. The exhibition is a tribute to the deceased in 2014 George Lewczyński, the doyen of Polish photography and the author of the “Anthology of Polish photography”. The catalogue of exquisite corpse is a kind of addition and update to the anthology released 20 years ago. “Exquisite corpse” is a review of what is interesting in Polish photography today. A kind of “pill”, which effect, through the use of surrealistic algorithm is unpredictable both for the participants, organizers and curator. Exquisite corpse is also a kind of farewell and drawing conclusions from the condition of the medium that may have died a natural death, dematerializing before our eyes.
