On every Saturday in BWA Wrocław Główny Gallery we would like to invite you to guided tours in new exhibition called Weltschmerz.
The motto of this year’s edition of the Open Call, which is organized as part of Wroclaw Drawing Triennial 2019, asks a question not only about the state of contemporary world. The term Weltschmerz expresses the pain of existence, however we understand weltschmerz as a broader concept and a departure point for more general considerations about crisis, which is also visible in the area of visual arts as the presence or absence of their deeper, ideological meaning in today’s world. The motto of the competition triggers off explorations of issues regarding the relationship of an artist with himself/herself in the face of the pressure exerted by the surrounding world and his/her ties with society. Therefore, it also encourages artists to discuss the meaning of individuality in the world where everybody is an individual.
On the English guided tours we will try to bring closer the idea of this exhibition and get across curators and artist visions. The tour guide will be host by Aleksandra Czerniak – history of art student and producer of art exhibition with cool British accent.
The event will take place on Saturdays at 12.00 p.m. according to the schedule: 22.06, 29.06, 06.07, 13.07, 20.07; and sometimes (Tuesday till Sunday) upon request (contact our info desk).
