A SOCIOLOGIST IN THE MUSEUM. VOL. 6. He uses his camera as a weapon! 23.07.17 (niedziela), godz. 15:00, poziom 5, wstęp bezpłatny (Sunday), 3 PM, 5th floor, admission free

Gordon Parks’ photographs talk about an important fragment of the contemporary American (and global) history: opposing racial segregation, political transformations, the everyday life of the black community and an all-encompassing social movement. Against this background there appear different photographs, too – lighter, documenting the lives of film and theatre stars.

What I try to do is to decipher exhibitions using the language that I know best – the language of sociology. Art is a text just like a poem or an interview. During the tour I will direct your attention to those questions and social issues that became the subject of Gordon Parks’ photographs. I am looking forward to having a discussion with you!
