Description
 
In the book by Łukasz Ronduda, Art Poland 70s., Members of the avant-garde discuss the opening of the Polish avant-garde art movement of the 1970s, which resulted in a never before seen pluralization of attitudes and actions in Polish art.
Particular sections are presented by artists such as Marek Konieczny, Paweł Freisler, Ewa Partum, Zbigniew Warpechowski, Andrzej Partum, Krzysztof Zarębski, Natalia LL, Andrzej Lachowicz, Krzysztof Zarębski, KwieKulik, Zbigniew Dłubak, Jan Świdziński, Krzysztof Wodiczko, Henryk Gajewski, Anastazy Wiśniewski, Zygmunt Piotrowski, Paweł Kwiek, Jan S. Wojciechowski, Grzegorz Kowalski, Elżbieta and Emil Cieślar, Wiktor Gutt, Waldemar Raniszewski, art collectives like the Film Form Workshops (Józef Robakowski, Wojciech Bruszewski, Paweł Kwiek, Ryszard Waśko) and the Motion Academy.
Artists Piotr Uklański conceived the book to debunk the image of this art movement as one filled with cold black and white conceptual monstrosities, exposing it to be a reservoir of refined, revolutionary and humorous intellectual strategies that meld seamlessly with a fascination with beauty, aesthetics, erotica, fetishism, political visualism and fundamental existential questions. The artist's design defends the visuality of the images presented in the album, in an attempt to give them an opportunity to generate new interpretations irrespective of the book's text.
English text only.

The background of the described artistic strategies is the pluralisation of artistic attitudes and gestures, which has been growing since the beginning of the 1970s and unprecedented in Polish art.

This differentiation was the result of, inter alia, crossing a purely avant-garde discourse and entering various kinds of marriages between art and reality. The author of the book's publishing concept is Piotr Uklański. Particularly important in it is the proposal to "rewrite" Polish art of the 1970s on a visual level, the desire to deconstruct its image as full of cold, black and white conceptual puns, and an attempt to show it as a reservoir of sophisticated intellectual strategies.
