The concept of the Museum of Current Art in Wrocław (MCA), formulated in the autumn of 1966 by Jerzy Ludwiński (1930–2000), an art historian, critic and graduate of the Catholic University of Lublin, functioned in Polish artistic life as a phantom-institution and model-institution, a prototype. The MCA was a product of the communist reality, based on multi-level fiction and hypocritical rituals.

During the lecture, the proposal of the MCA will be approached from the broader perspective of Polish museology as a prototype of the “neotechnical museum” – a new type of institution operating at the intersection of a scientific research centre and an artistic studio
