Activities with a Tube belongs to a group of works KwieKulik developed in relation to commissioned hackwork. It was the first of these works that was neither linked to martyrdom nor propaganda. Made from pieces of cardboard and painted with oil paint, the seemingly Pop art piece looked as if it was made of plastic and was meant to advertise toothpaste. Using it like a strange fetish, Kwiek’s sister Urszula, Zofia Kulik and her 3-year-old son Maksymilian Dobromierz performed thematic gestures towards the tube: saluting, bowing, standing at attention, shooting, teeth-brushing. The work was first presented to the public in 1977 at the New Trends in East-European Art exhibition organised by the Technical University in Eindhoven (NL).
