Kindergarten designed by Katarzyna Kobro
Languages of publication
In the interwar period, artists sought to blur the boundaries between art and everyday life and to offer a practical dimension to any artistic activity. Katarzyna Kobro, fond of the Great Avant-garde functionalism, created a sculpture - a small, white "Composition No. 8" - and subsequently, a spatial model based on it, that became a prototype of a functional kindergarten. Regrettably, the practical implementation of the kindergarten was not an option during her lifetime. The Academy of Fine Arts in Łódź chose to commemorate the artist by implementing her project. Accomplishing the kindergarten based on the Kobro's sculpture will be a "living monument" for the artist, a place filled with the buzz of children, full of art and references to the artist's work.
