Motto: In an age when growing numbers of people tend to think dangerously alike, art´s capacity to suspend, even for a moment, our habitual ways of seeing may well prove to be of its greatest value.
More about us
“Keret House” by Polish architect Jakub Szczęsny, is such a noteworthy project that the Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA) recently included a model of it in its collection of contemporary architecture collection. The exhibition at DOX gives viewers the opportunity to familiarize themselves with this project, along with other recent Szczęsny' s works.
Three photographers from Respekt Magazine were there during floods, election campaigns, the NATO convoy, and a solar eclipse. Their photographs show the extent to which the exceptional moments of our lives are linked with banal everyday ones. And that one cannot imagine one without the other.
The (DIS)PLACE exhibition is the culmination of a project intended for students of post-secondary art schools in the field of photography, prepared by DOX as part of the attendant programme for the THIS PLACE exhibition, which had its world premiere at DOX in 2014. To “search for and define the (NON)PLACE of the individual in contemporary society” is the basic idea of the project.
TRIAL is an exhibition inspired by the second trial of Russian businessman Mikhail Khodorkovsky and his business partner Platon Lebedev, which took place between February 2009 and December 2010. Rather than attempting to reconstruct the trial, the exhibition aims to expose the inner mechanisms of the Russian legal system and the atmosphere of court proceedings.
