About Agnieszka Polska

Polish artist Agnieszka Polska uses a quite unique digital collage technique, which she combines with the great tradition of animated films to create pictorial narratives. Her works have been shown internationally at the Center for Contemporary Art in Warsaw, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Kraków, at Kunst-Werke in Berlin, at the Belvedere in Vienna, at the PinchukArtCentre in Kiev and at the Zachęta National Gallery in Warsaw. In 2017 she received the Preis der Nationalgalerie in Berlin.

In her work, Agnieszka Polska uses things she finds, especially photographs and printed materials from the 1920s to 1970s and then uses digital and traditional animation techniques to create a new narrative. She prompts questions about how the present can be constructed from memories and how private or historical events can be presented in a different way. She thereby touches on a key theme of Art Collection Telekom. How can contemporary art help rectify the problem of displacement, false memories, and the re-evaluation of historical events?
