'Common Affairs' at Deutsche Bank Kunsthalle presents Polish artists that participated in the 'Views Award'. The prize was founded in 2003 by Zacheta - National Gallery of Art in Warsaw and Deutsche Bank. Agnieszka Polska was nominated for the prize in 2013 with the film 'Future Days' that was produced with the support of the Art Collection Telekom and is part of the collection.
In the exhibition 'Common Affairs' the artist shows the video work 'Guns', created with Witek Orski in 2014. As in many of her works, Agnieszka Polska deals with the writing of history. 'Guns' tells the story of the student protests in Poland in March 1968. The authorities apparantly gave the order to the Polish Army Museum to incapacitate all the guns of the collection, to avoid the protesters using them.
Until 30. October 2016 at Deutsche Bank Kunsthalle in Berlin.
