Zdzisław Pidek. We remember
The exhbition „Zdzisław Pidek. We remember” was a presentation of the works of the artist from Gdansk who has recently passed away. It was a very special presentation – prepared by his friends, Professors' students. The exhibition was based on Zdzisław Pidek own idea to bring his own works into Laznia CCA space. Zdzisław Pidek was a sculptor and a Professor of the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk. His memorial works of the special places from Polish contemporary history related to the victims for from Katyn and others have a very important place in his art and they are very differnet from traditional monuments. The main pressure is put on a spectator, his feelings and emotions. The catalogue just like an exhibition tries to analyze his most important works – monuments in Katyn, Charkow, Miednoje, Belzec. The book shows Zdzisław Pidek not only as an artist but also as a pedagogue from Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk. See details

The catalogue was published for Ewa Kobylarczyk's exhibition in Laznia CCA and presents her artistic actions done in Venice. The artist carefully covered many places of that floating city. She wrapped the arcades, wells, fountains and lions statues – the symbols of the city patron, St. Mark - with airy material. With this subtle ingerention into the urban landscape visible to the pedestrians she tried to tell the story about exclusion and oblivion. See details

Manipulations. On Economies of Deceit
The catalogue „Manipulations. On Economy of Deceit” deals with issues of manipulation, illusion, or even of deceit – understood as artistic strategies. The problem of a theoretical attitude towards these terms is that – regardless of whether we approve of them or if we negate them – they imply an artistic representation which neither manipulates nor deceives. It can even be expected that a medium that is used in art is applied in a “manipulative” manner towards a concrete end, and it is expected from an artistic practice that by means of illusion it will create an interesting field of reference which in turn, by its reception, shall activate an intellectual play.See details

Nomads of Nowadays
The catalogue includes a text on the subject of the phenomenon of mobility – travelling and moving of people as something characteristic of the global era society. The authors attempt to answer the following questions: How far does the phenomenon of mobility on a large scale and breaking up the permanent bond between a man and a place enrich our knowledge about other cultures we encounter on the way? How far does the mobility result in a feeling of alienation from the surroundings? How much does it increase our tolerance towards ‘alien’ and to what extent does it lead to the withdrawal to the closest circle of people similar to us. Is multiculturalism or cultural homogeneity the effect of everyday meetings of people coming from various cultures? To what extent does our awareness of our temporary place of residence make us change our attitude towards our own habitat?See details
