JOZEF ROBAKOWSKI. MINI/Goethe-Institut, Curatorial Residencies Ludlow 38, New York, 2015. Published in association with Spector Books, Leipzig. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 152 pp. 30 x 20 cm. ISBN 9783940064249 In English.
Publisher's description: Another publication from the cutting-edge Ludlow 38 gallery, this mini-survey of one of the most famous Polish artists and filmmakers of the neo-avant-garde movement presents a wealth of information on artist Jozef Robakowski's (b. 1939) career in images, critical texts, historical documents and conversations. Working outside the official museum and gallery system to present politically critical works, Robakowski was extremely active in developing Poland's independent film scene in the 1960s and 1970s. Accompanying his first solo US exhibition at Ludlow 38 and his retrospective at AKM Karlsruhe (2012), this publication covers a variety of the artist's principal ideas and artistic collaborations. His transgressive use of diverse media -- photography, video, film, paper works, mechanical picture production, expanded cinema, TV broadcast, installation, performance, etc. -- incorporates both a meta-discourse about the guidelines of "reality" as well as a subjective perspective and continues to be reviewed in both an art and film context.
