They Don't Know Why But They Keep Doing It




If u happen to be in Prague, don't miss my "Backstage" - today is the opening of the exhibition of Polish video art called "They Don't Know Why But They Keep Doing It" in a frame of the 9th Fresh Film Fest

30th of August - 2nd of September 2012
oppening 30th of August, 6 pm
NoD Gallery – Dlouhá 33, Praha 1

Artists:
Maks Cieślak, Grzegorz Drozd, Arti Grabowski, Piotr Grabowski, Mateusz Okoński, Dominika Olszowy, Karol Radziszewski, Konrad Smoleński, Maciej Stępiński, Alicja Żebrowska, Piotr Żyliński

Eleven films displayed in Prague are examining the national identity issues as well as particular relations between Poles and Czechs. The variety of features and characters influences the connections between our two nations which comes to effect in sense of humour and absurd. Screening shows polish video art at the limit of certain critical paradigm. Art that is not literal and comes to head in irony and sarcasm.

curator: Piotr Sikora
