DISCOURSIVE SPACES. CONCEPTUAL ART IN 'AKUMULATORY 2' GALLERY (Reprezentacja, podmiotowosc, nieobecnosc. Sztuka konceptualna w Galerii Akumulatory 2)
Languages of publication
'Akumulatory 2' Gallery functioning in Poznan from 1973 was a pivotal space for conceptual discourse in Poland. Working through the notion of privacy influenced by the thought of Wittgenstein and deontology, it created a heterotopia - a space neither public nor private - a base for conceptual critique of representation, illusion and subjectivity. At the same time conceptual works exhibited in the Gallery intervened and transformed key notions of artistic discourse in Poland in the 70s annihilating the well-known oppositions such as private/public, autonomous/politically engaged, concept/object, mental/bodily. Conceptual art understood as a position of a discoursive subject developed in 'Akumulatory 2' transgressed the communicational schemas and highly ritualized reality of Poland in the 70s slipping away from the authoritarian scenario.
