Male Puberty in Focus

The Center for Contemporary Art (CSW) at the Ujazdowski Castle will be showing an exhibition by influential American photographer Larry Clark from Jan. 9.

Born in 1942, Clark first achieved prominence with his groundbreaking 1971 photo book Tulsa, in which he confronted social problems faced by the day's youth culture. Since that time he has been documenting the pitfalls and fragility of male puberty. His uncommon photographic style was explored further in Teenage Lust (1983), a book of photographs documenting the lives of a new generation of teens living in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

To better portray the intensity of the emotions of his themes, Clark often depicts violence and sexuality, which are treated in a shockingly casual manner by the protagonists of his pictures. In all his work, Clark centers on the problems facing youth: group dynamics, identity, media influence, and the development of manhood.

Clark is well known to Polish audiences as the director of the controversial films Kids (1995) and Ken Park (2002).

Center for Contemporary Art, Ujazdowski Castle, 2 Jazdów St., open until Feb. 22, www.csw.art.pl
