Making Use: Life in Postartistic Times
Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw,
Emilii Plater 51
Warsaw

February 19 – May 1, 2016
Tuesday – Sunday, 12 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Admission free

Making Use: Life in Postartistic Times includes an evolving exhibition, workspace, and a public program. The main themes explored during the project are the interweaving of art and other spheres of life; art is 'migrating' from museums and galleries into urban survival strategies, street protests, subversive advertising, campaigns to abolish bank debt, utopian experiments, critical cartography, agricultural cooperatives, alternative tourism, and the curricula of 'free' universities.

For the duration of the project, the museum will function as an information hub on practices with a high coefficient of art, shifting the center of gravity from the work of art to reports from other fields of life. The exhibition will develop over time, reaching its ultimate form on the closing date, May 1, 2016. The first floor of the Emilia building will be devoted to 'other' exhibitionary functions: a workshop, an open office, an auditorium, a kitchen, and a relaxation zone.
