In For God and My Country, Ivan Grubanov presents a series of new installations and paintings made of national flags and worker suits. The Serbian artist explores the notion of nationalism through his memories of the bloody civil conflict that broke the former Yugoslavia apart. Grubanov addresses the question what it means to be part of a nation-state, what it means to try to leave national membership, and what it means to be associated with a nation.
Trans Hooligans is Marcin Dudek’s first exhibition at the gallery. Through his own experiences as a young hooligan supporter of the Krakow football team, the artist explores materials, messages, and political contexts of the football stadium. These explorations help us to understand the functioning of the human psyche, of our insatiable need to belong to a community, and our thirst for recognition and hierarchy.
