The concept of the exhibition seeks to outline the attributes of the stories of the transformation of both countries after the collapse of the Soviet Union, with a focus on their economic, political, cultural, and ethical consequences. The project, indeed, does not seek to solve current problems or offer “definite” answers – it aims to redraw the complex aspects of the post-transformation situations of both countries, which have been marked by rising authoritarian and anti-democratic tendencies in recent years.
Jagoda Dobecka (1991) is a Polish visual artist based in Wrocław who uses traditional media, such as painting, sculpture, video to talk about current political and social issues. In 2016 she graduated from the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Fine Arts in Wrocław at the Painting Faculty.
