A few days ago I sat in on a lecture by Susanne Altmann, an Art Historian and Independent Curator. Based out of Dresden, she presented many exhibits she curated - mostly dealing with contemporary art and issues of society.
A name of an art group she worked with drew my attention simply because they were Polish and their works all boldly displayed their URL. I committed the name to memory and looked it up the following day. (If I wrote it down, I'd feel confident I had the information and would then proceed to lose the paper.)
Easy enough. With the aid of Google I landed at https://www.twozywo.art.pl - a site representing artists who seem to master the use of public space as a field of social communication. Beautiful typography, thoughtful phrases (if you look at the English version or use Systran) and a wonderful project on a character called Kapitana Europy.
After I spent quite some time on their site, I saw a little piece on Kapitana Europy that made me laugh and say WTF? I soon realized that I was watching what I thought to be a twożywo billboard chasing after me in my dreams.
