The Avant-garde museum
Edited by Jarosław Suchan, Agnieszka Pindera, The Avant-Garde Museum
The Avant-garde Museum – edited by Jarosław Suchan and Agnieszka Pindera – is the first study enabling avant-garde auto-institutionalization to be discerned as a separate and specific phenomenon. It puts forward a comparison of several avant-garde (quasi)institutions established between World War I and World War II. What was the motivation behind the desire to create one’s own museum institutions? How were they envisaged? How did they fit into the avant-garde tenet of art as a tool for forging a better future? Furthermore, were there any ideas behind them that can serve as guidelines for museums today? These are the questions posed by the authors of the publication, which is also a preview of the autumn exhibition at Muzeum Sztuki.
