poster for Jan Dziaczkowski   "Keine Grenze / No Borders"

This event has ended.

In his small scale collages, Polish artist Jan Dziaczkowski (b.1983, Warsaw) imagines what the great cities and capitals of Western Europe would look like if the Iron Curtain had been drawn in Spain or Portugal rather than along the Elbe. Armed with a razor, scissors, glue and a fanciful imagination, Dziaczkowski creates fantastic urbanscapes from postcards designed for tourists onto which he has inserted images of socialist buildings. In choosing iconic, elegant and classical examples of Western architecture to contrast with the rigid and unyielding socialist architecture, he sends a loud message for artistic and political freedom in a small and quiet picture. Jan Dziaczkowski graduated from The Academy of Fine Arts, Warsaw, in 2007. This is his first exhibition in the United States.
