Antoni Zdebiak. Everyone is Furthest from Himself

Antoni Zdebiak treated art as a process and a ritual, and his own body – as a tool. In his photographs, he usually became his own model. His archive contains hundreds of self-portraits. There are classic examples among them, in which we can see Antoni Zdebiak’s face or rather hundreds of his faces. In other works, we observe him in action. We invite you to visit Antoni Zdebiak’s solo exhibition which will take place within Warsaw Gallery Weekend.

Virtual Museum of Photography, available at: www.fotomuzeum.faf.org.pl, is a new base of photographs and knowledge on Polish photography.
The expanded portal allows a free browse through scans from archives studied and prepared by Archeology of Photography Foundation, but also through selected photography collections from other institutions – i.a. Jewish Historical Institute, Fundacja Pola Magnetyczne (Magnetic Fields Foundation), Fundacja dla Filmu i Fotografii (Foundation for Film and Photography), and Stowarzyszenie Dokumentalistów Droga (Documentary Photographers Association ‘The Road’).

Field of Vision. CENTRALA Designers’ Task Force / Wojciech Zamecznik

This time, Archeology of Photography Foundation has invited CENTRALA Designers’ Task Force to cooperation within the ‘Live Archives’ project. On a daily basis the group members - Małgorzata Kuciewicz and Simone De Iacobis - are involved in working on architectural and art projects, deriving their inspiration from 20th century avant-garde. From the perspective of researchers, designers and re-constructors of historical exhibitions they have taken a closer look at the archives of an exhibitioner, graphic designer and photographer, Wojciech Zamecznik.

Dłubak in Foundation Cartier-Bresson

The Zbigniew Dłubak – Héritier des avant-gardes exhibition is being held at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson between January 17 and April 29, 2018.
In the post-war period, Zbigniew Dłubak (1921-2005) was one of the driving forces behind the profound changes in the Polish artistic scene. A great experimenter of photographic forms, he was also a painter, art theoretician, teacher and editor of the Fotografia magazine for twenty years, introducing into this publication a robust photographic critique and interdisciplinary approach to the medium. He enjoyed a certain notoriety in Poland during his lifetime. Several monographic exhibitions were dedicated to him and some of his major works are part of Polish public collections.
