Introducing the artists participating in the "Shout Sister, Shout!" project

The exhibition as part of the "Shout Sister, Shout!" project is fast approaching. You will be able to see it at our place in the first half of next year - from February 3 until the end of May.

The project "Shout Sister, Shout!" tells the story of women and the exclusions they suffered in the past - during the National Socialist era - and which they face today. Together with invited artists, we focus on female representatives of the local community, recalling their stories and inviting them to join us.

Participating in the project are:

  • Małgorzata Szandała - born 1977, PhD in art, lecturer at the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice. She explores various narrative forms that are at the intersection between factual description of real events and fiction growing out of them, or reflects on reality through subjective experience. She creates site-specific installations, objects and visual essays. She is the author of the book “Atomic Shelters and Dictionaries".
