The photographs of the series Kopiec Bonawentura takes its origin from a quote by french author Alfred Jarry from its play Ubu Roi (1896): «Set in Poland, that is to say nowhere.» The photographer Lucas Olivet builds a multiple and transnational answer.

Andy Warhol

Death and Disaster (English)
A 1962 newspaper photograph of a plane crash inspired Andy Warhol to produce a series of images dealing with disaster, catastrophe and death. In his grainy silk screens – some brightly coloured, others in black and silver – both the content and form refer to the reportage aesthetics, lust for sensation and morass of images prevalent in our society. This is the background against which he addresses the themes of transience and mortality.
The catalogue accompanying the exhibition in the Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz presents Warhol's substantial oeuvre from this era. The catalogue's essays illuminate his deep-seated preoccupation with metaphysical issues.
