15:00 - 18:00

You are warmly invited to the opening of the exhibition Marcin Dudek: AKUMULATORY. We start at 15:00 with introductions and speeches. Afterwards we will toast the exhibition together with the artist present. Everybody welcome!

Marcin Dudek (*1979, Kraków, PL) weaves together autobiographical memories of his youth as part of the Polish generation that came of age after the dissolution of the Eastern bloc with a critique of society’s dependence on spectacle, power, and aggression. Working across installation, performance, sculpture, and painting, he uses found and salvaged materials, slicing and welding them together in an anti-readymade approach. For his first solo show in the German-speaking world, the artist has conceived new large-scale installations, presented alongside existing and reconfigured works. His exhibition at IKOB centers around spaces in which profound transformations—of the body, of the mind, of society—take place. In each of these locations, survival and community become inextricable from one another.
