War State. Works from the collection of Galeria Wymiany

Two things have affected this publication. One is the phenomenon of Józef Robakowski’s Galeria Wymiany, the other the exhibition War State. Works from the Collection of Galeria Wymiany, hosted by the Centre of Contemporary Art Znaki Czasu in Toruń.

Located in a private apartment on the ninth floor of a tower block in Łódź, Exchange Gallery was a “live gallery” from the very beginning; it combined an archive, a collection and a multimedia centre, as well as a place for people to meet and hold discussions, rather than being merely an exhibition space. That was especially true in the 1980s when the gallery was regarded as an important point in the independent art scene with an extended network of contacts, both in Poland and abroad. A private apartment was turned into a venue for private art – a phenomenon resulting from the negation of official forms of artistic life, as well as from the social and political conditions prevailing in the last decade of the People’s Republic of Poland.
