Can art change people's minds?
Why are totalitarian governments afraid of counterculture?

This course examines both the tradition of counterculture in Poland in the context of European avant-garde and the relationship between artistic expression and socio-political atmosphere in the 1980s and 1990s. Some of the most prominent artists of the 20th century will be studied and discussed: Zbigniew Libera, Władysław Hasior, Stanisław Witkiewicz, Tadeusz Kantor, Zofia Kulik, etc.

The material will be investigated from the perspective of the most contemporary attempts to question and subvert the existing notions about the place art and artist in academia and society.
