Baumgart Anna
Born in 1966 in Wrocław
 
1989-1994 Academy of Fine Arts, Sculpture Department, Gdansk, PL
 
Anna Baumgart is an artist with a special social sensitivity, and who is open to what is left unsaid, repressed and unresolved. She offers a critical reflection on the human condition and society, referring to the issues of historical memory and cultural identity. In this spirit, she created a series of figurative sculptures inspired by photographs in the press, an ephemeral installation in the form of an ellipsis floating in the place of the bridge that once connected the two parts of the Warsaw Ghetto, as well as the video Fresh Cherries, which tackles the topic of forced prostitution in Nazi concentration camps, and sexual violence against women. Despite the diversity of her artistic activities, Anna Baumgart’s work invariably revolves around life in society, how it is experienced and its impact on the individual. The artist is characterized by her remarkable sensitivity to current social and cultural contexts, and her keen sense of Hegel’s Zeitgeist.
