    Eulalia Domanowska
    Former Director of Centre of Polish Sculpture in Oronsko, Poland
    “Impact of Art”

    Eulalia Domanowska talks about Polish contemporary art, describing persons of both: older, so called “Critical art” generation of Polish artists, as Katarzyna Kozyra, Zbigniew Libera and Joanna Rajkowska and their most interesting achievements in the 1990s. And later, and younger, started after year 2000: Julita Wójcik with her famous “Rainbow”, Diana Lelonek and Daniel Rycharski, a visual artist working in a small village, Kurówko, Anna Siekierska  who fights for the environment, the well-being of animals and plants, the artistic practice of Jana Shostak plays with Polish language and focus on racism in society and feminism.

    These are turbulent times in Poland for cultural institutions and their employees, and thus there is a strong desire to incite change. The question about the impact of art became even more pressing after the conservative Law and Justice Party won the parliamentary election in 2015 as cultural institutions started holding politicians to account while a large portion of the art community became ostentatiously indifferent and market-oriented. What impact are we actually talking about? How to recognise or measure it? Who benefits from these “socially sensitive” programmes of public theatres, museums and concert halls?

    Eulalia Domanowska was Director of Centre of Polish Sculpture in Oronsko, Poland in the last 5 years.
