Zwrotnica. Early Days of Neo-avant-garde in Upper Silesia


The exhibition looks at Silesia’s artistic community through the prism of the concept of the great 20th century Avant-Garde. Between late 1940s and early 1950s, Silesia was far from a cultural desert. Young artists who met here did thrive artistically and the totalitarian power did not prevent their drive to self-educate and hone their individual skills. We present the Gliwice Photography Society, the works of Katowice’s ST-53 painters and of Stefan Gaida, Irena Bąk, Klaudiusz Jędrusik, Maria Obremba, Zdzisław Stanek, Urszula Broll and Konrad Swinarski.
