POLAND. "Missing Documents. Photographs of the Polish Transformation after 1989" at the CCA Ujazdowski Castle
31/01/2012 10:00:21

"Missing Documents. Photographs of the Polish Transformation after 1989" is the first exhibition organized as part of the CCA Ujazdowski Castle's three-year "Postdocument" program, which seeks to bring together exposure of the most interesting documentary phenomena in photography, film, nonfiction literature while also expanding its theoretical context.
CCA Ujazdowski Castle presents images by Poland's most renowned photographers (Anna Beata Bohdziewicz, Chris Niedentahl, Tomasz Tomaszewski, Wojciech Wieteska) that show a country subsumed in an economic, social, and cultural crisis, seeking its identity between real-socialism and turbo-capitalism. Socially engaged photojournalism (Maria Zbaska, Lukasz Trzcinski, Maciej Pisuk) mixes with documentary typologies shot at arm's length (Wojciech Wilczyk, Konrad Pustola) creating a unique panorama of Polish society at the turn of the millennium. Acclaimed foreign photographers (Carl de Keyzer, Allan Sekula, Mark Power, Rineke Dijkstra, Zoe Leonard) expand the horizon of thought about the Polish transformation after 1989 by showing its dynamics and specifics against the background of global changes.
