Feminism, Gender and the New Poland

In her first solo exhibition in Poland, American artist and writer Martha Rosler is staging a new project called Guide for the Perplexed: How to Succeed in the New Poland.

The exhibition at Warsaw’s Ujazdowski Castle Center for Contemporary Art includes a number of key pieces by Rosler, including a selection of her photomontages, video works, and photographs.

Rosler’s work often centers on socio-political issues, generally seen through the prism of everyday life, especially from the point of view of women. Her engagement with such contemporary grass-roots movements as the anti-war movement and Occupy Wall Street is well known.

Guide for the Perplexed: How to Succeed in the New Poland centers on life in contemporary Poland. Meetings, discussions, and performances are being held for the duration of the exhibition in one of the Center for Contemporary Art’s main galleries. Visitors are invited to participate in Town Hall-style public meetings facilitated by activists, educators, and experts. These discussions are held in and around kiosks devoted to the following subjects: Gender, or how to be a woman in the new Poland; Housing; Labor; Debt; How to be an artist in the new Poland; Environment and industry; Migration; What should be placed inside the new Jewish museum?; and Should there be a Polish colony on Mars? (Polish national identity). Visitors are encouraged to continue to post comments, reactions, and suggestions on the “Democracy Wall” running the length of the gallery.

The exhibition is accompanied by a publication of selected essays by Rosler, newly translated into Polish.
