Metaphorically and seasonally, the exhibition 1000 Hands suits the climate of the pre-spring thaw, illuminating a landscape of exhaustion and approaching, intuitively sensed change. In Polish literature this metaphor carries a political dimension. In the works shown together here by Rafał Bujnowski (1974–), Peter Puklus (1980–) and Zofia Rydet (1911–1997), what is vital is the very process of transformation, and the accompanying ambivalence, the temperature of interpersonal relations and the potential of the human hands from the title.
“Slippery” at Raster is Karolina Jabłońska’s first individual show in Warsaw. In her paintings girls wear rings and guys wear watches, but the stereotypical logic of dominance is reversed. The heroines here are idols, soothsayers and thieves, and relationships and passions explode as violently as they end, in emotion. Here exaggeration and hyperbole are the rule for both composition and life.

Bujnowski explores the theme of the politics of light and painterly illusion in the context of human skin color.
A book devoted to the work of Romuald Gutt, one of the most important Polish architects of the 20th century, forerunner of organic architecture, designer of characteristic buildings of grey brick, public edifices and residential structures.
Slavs and Tatars’ work often mixes registers of high and low, high-brow ideologies and low-brow media (pickles to balloons). In that vein, roasted sunflower seeds are a staple snack, shared across the Slavic-Turkic peoples from Eastern Europe to Central Asia. Like the wheat of Wheat Mollah, the sunflower seed becomes a symbol of proletariat or rather, its 21st century sucessor, the précariat.

The post-romantic figure of the drunken artist is fading into the past, leaving behind a landscape littered with hallucinations, depravity, and shattered illusions. This is the story of the intimate ties between contemporary art and vodka. Conceived as a medley of artworks and documentary content, the exhibition features Krzysztof M. Bednarski, Olaf Brzeski, Michał Budny, Rafał Bujnowski, Oskar Dawicki, Edward Dwurnik, Władysław Hasior, Jerzy Lewczyński, Honorata Martin, Dominika Olszowy, Zbigniew Rogalski, Wilhelm Sasnal, and others.
