Christian Jankowski: Heavy Weight History
8 June 2013
The Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw has prepared the first in Poland, comprehensive presentation of works from the outstanding German artist, Christian Jankowski. The artist developed an original artistic practice with which he synthesizes performative and participatory strategies in his film works, installations, photography, and objects. Jankowski undermines clichés and in a refreshing manner, he uses formats that are ubiquitous in mass culture to provoke reflection on the role of the artist as well as art in contemporary society.
