Art Meets Politics at Zachęta
September 17, 2008

Revolutions 1968, the Zachęta gallery's latest exhibition, is more an artistic than a historical portrayal of the political and social tensions of the late sixties which erupted in riots and demonstrations that rocked much of the planet, including Mexico, the United States, Germany, France, Poland, Czechoslovakia and Japan.

The exhibition tackles phenomena like the pop culture of the day, the birth of the counter culture and woman's liberation and civil rights movements, the emergence of environmental awareness, and the fascination with leftist movements and utopian architectural visions. Paintings, videos, photographs and other media share wall space with archive visual materials, documentation and specially made installations.

The exhibition was organized with the support of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, the American embassy, the Goethe-Institut in Warsaw, the British Council, and the Hungarian Institute in Warsaw.
