Stanisław Ruksza

Stadt, Land:

Warschau, Polen

Since 2008 he is a programme director of the Kronika Center for Contemporary Art in Bytom. Since 2011 he cooperates with the Imago Mundi Foundation. Graduate of art history at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków.
Curator of many exhibitions in Poland and abroad. In his actions he combines visual arts with other areas of culture, social and political sciences, alternative tourism, and in the form of his exhibitions he deliberately ignores institutional rules and fashions. He occasionally makes works, artefacts and props supplementing exhibitions he curates.
His theoretical research concerns the history of exhibiting art, connections between visual arts and social, political and economic transformations, the subject of death and borderline experiences in contemporary art, and other areas.
