May Men Rot: Feminism in Photos

Niech sczezną mężczyźni (May Men Rot) is a photographic project inspired by feminism and gender issues from the Łódź Kaliska group and is now showing at the Center for Contemporary Art in Warsaw. There are 14 large format photographs in the inimitable style of the group, depicting nude female models engaged in work usually reserved for men like surfacing highways and working in quarries.

The socio-cultural status of Polish women is constantly being redefined with new meanings being sought in new contexts. Women reinforce the central role they have played in some of the group's earlier works, inspiring and giving shape to the many questions and problems that arise in the course of their work.
Łódź Kaliska was founded in 1979 and comprises four male artists. The group has consistently taken an unconventional approach to art, operating in a gray area where performance art meets theater of the absurd. They have also produced short films referring to the poetics of silent film and interwar surrealism in addition to their photographic work.
