The exhibition spotlights Belarusian photo books and zines published over the last few years in various European countries. Their authors all share interest in collective and individual memory.

 

Lesia Pcholka’s VEHA archive gathers family photos taken in Belarus before 1970 (the People of the Woods collection is a part of the exhibition). Alexey Kazantsev’s Relaxing Chamber photo album examines the archetypical symbolism of animals in the humanity’s collective unconscious memory. In Charomushki Odyssey, Andrei Loginov tells us an adventure story of the discovery of glass negatives in which an unknown photographer in rural Western Belarus captured people in truly tragic periods in history. Loginov continues this narrative using his own photos, portraits of contemporary residents of the same places. Andrey Anro’s zine, Happy Death Society, is the story of the author’s grandmother, Galena. She joined the Apostolate of Good Death and decided to stay in bed until the end of her life, without getting up, and await a happy ending. Sergey Brushko’s photographs from his album Zmena became the symbol of the era of change in Belarus between 1980 and 1990. Yauhen Attsetski looks at an individual in the context of political changes in his Square of Change, where he portrays the backyard resistance against the regime. Katerina Kouzmitcheva explores in her zine Betonium the contemporary identity in the former countries of the Eastern Bloc and their architectural legacy – blocks of flats made of reinforced concrete panels.

Curator: Olga Mzhelskaya

Art_Inkubator, Tymienieckiego 3

DID YOU KNOW THAT Art_Inkubator is located in the former factory of Karol Scheibler II, son of the greatest factory owner in Łódź? 

Every firstborn son in the Scheibler family was named Karol. The factory is a part of Księży Młyn, also called a town in town” or “Polish Manchester”. Scheibler Senior built the largest textile factory in this part of Europe, as well as an estate of workers’ houses, many palaces, hospitals, schools, and parks. Karol Scheibler’s legacy was later developed by Karol Scheibler II, who erected factories at Tymienieckiego and Milionowa Streets. The factory still has the original Russian gauge railway tracks! You will find them near the passage to the new “Fuzja” estate.
