Abstract (English)

"For the exhibition during the Images Festival, TPW presents two seminal works from Zmijewski’s oeuvre. Them/Sie is the result of a workshop in which Zmijewski brings together representatives from conflicting Polish social groups. Participants each create a mural symbolically representing their ideological positions and are then asked to play a game allowing the “reworking” of each other’s images. What ensues is nothing short of war.

In Singing Lesson 2 / Gesangsstunde 2 Zmijewski brings together a group of hearing-impaired youth to work with the Barockensemble der Fachrichtung Alte Musik orchestra in Leipzig, Germany. Together they collaborate on a performance of music by Johann Sebastian Bach. The result is an exhilarating and demanding social and sonic experiment in contrasts." -- Publisher's website.
