The photographs of the Wrocław ‘70 Visual Arts Symposium by Michał Diament, Zdzisław Holuka and Tadeusz Rolke provide a good starting point for a discussion about the role of photography in the process of art reproduction, decontextualisation and canonisation of ephemeral and spatial artistic activities. What is the relationship between photography and a work of art? Can a photograph become a new work dominating the documented object or activity? What is the connection between this peculiar photographic propaganda of art and the propaganda of the Polish People’s Republic?

Adam Mazur is an art historian and Americanist, lecturer at the University of Arts in Poznań, curator, editor-in-chief of the BLOK magazine.
