In-depth Reception is a warm-up before visiting the exhibition on your own, intended to encourage you to ask questions and carefully look at the featured works. Let yourself savour art and feel free to share your observations and conclusions, however surprising they may be. Unhurriedly, without crowds, with friends or with somebody you’ve just met.

Once a month on selected Wednesdays, our mediators will be waiting for you by works of their choice, ready to discuss them and answer your questions. During the conversations, we will carefully look at the works and think about what feelings and emotions they evoke in us, so that in the future we will be able to explore the museum more consciously and with an open mind.

Anna Krukowska will talk about the work Thanka 40 °C presented at Kama Sokolnicka’s exhibition Glare (level 0)

The exhibition Glare encourages mindfulness, careful observation, listening and touching. Let’s find out together what it’s like… slowly, for a few minutes, staring at the golden velvet?

Małgorzata Rzerzycha-Myśliwy will talk about the work Bait featured at Puck Verkade’s exhibition Cursed (level 3)

Bait, created in the wake of the #MeToo wave, continues the discussion of women’s rights and draws our attention to how such conversations are held in society. Will we be able to unravel the symbols and contexts hidden in Puck Verkade’s video?

Marta Mularczuk will talk about the work I Can’t Sleep by Krištof Kintery, from the International Contemporary Art Collection of Wrocław Contemporary Museum, presented at the exhibition Private Mythologies. Marta’s Birthday (level 4)

During the conversation, we will think together whether the figure wrapped in a sleeping bag at the end of the exhibition is really unable to fall asleep, to what extent the contexts influence the interpretation of works of contemporary art, and whether there is room for a sense of humour in art.

Jagoda Forycka will talk about Zofia Martin’s work Trillion Has Eighteen Zeros shown at the exhibition What After / What For. Works from the DTZSP Collection (level 5)

Insects are creatures not small enough for us to fail to notice them, but small enough that we should ignore them (Zofia Martin). What did the artist want to achieve by turning irritating insects into precious objects?
