"Disease as a Source of Art" - temporary exhibition

from April, 28th

This is not an exhibition about illnesses, but about the art that is created with its inclusion. This is not an exhibition about the artist’s body, but about the body of a painting. The project grew out of the conviction that there is a connection between injury and creativity, the artist’s or author’s efficiency and the work. The exhibition gathers works created in changed circumstances, in a condition exacerbated by disability. Exceptions include healthy artists who create poignant works that interpret the phenomenon of sickly images.
