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.

Jan Kozub will talk about the work Death Valley, 52 °C presented at Kama Sokolnicka’s exhibition Glare (level 0)

Let’s think together: What is the temperature of Glare? When does an exhibition become a story? Why do we keep coming back to the Death Valley?

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

What is the impact of the climate crisis on our lives? What are we experiencing because of the current state of the environment? Numerous symbols and contexts combined with an insightful view of reality are characteristic of works by Puck Verkade. Let’s look at these problems through the artist’s eyes!

Anna Krukowska will talk about Krzysztof Wodiczko’s Self-portrait in the Corner, from the International Contemporary Art Collection of Wrocław Contemporary Museum, shown at the exhibition Private Mythologies. Marta’s Birthday (level 4)

This work criticises art that is withdrawn from the public sphere and avoids contact with reality. During the discussion, we will talk about socially engaged art and the role of an artist.

Jagoda Forycka will talk about Andrzej Klimczak-Dobrzaniecki’s work Untitled, presented at the exhibition What After / What For. Works from the DTZSP Collection (level 5).

What do the buildings depicted on Klimczak-Dobrzaniecki’s gouaches represent and what was their function? How are they connected with the theme of the exhibition – what will be left after us?
