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.

Meret Oppenheim

Mirrors of the mind
In Meret Oppenheimer’s oeuvre we encounter an early pioneer of a wholly imaginative interplay of liberal and applied art. Today the lively, poetical-humorous work still finds resonance in contemporary art through its candour as well as its spiritual and feminine independence.
The exhibition catalogue “Gedankenspiegel – Mirrors of the Mind” illustrates Meret Oppenheim’s enduring position as artist’s muse through numerous prints, paintings and photographs. Her work’s stimulating dialogue with that of artist friends and colleagues portrays a picture of the creative landscape and notional affinity of the time.
