COMMON AFFAIRS is a project of the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle, the Polish Institute Berlin, and Zachęta – National Gallery of Art in Warsaw. All of the participating artists were nominated for or won the VIEWS Award. The exhibition touches on the history and impact of the prize initiated by Deutsche Bank and Zachęta, which today is the most important award for contemporary Polish art.

Against this backdrop, the curators, Julia Kurz (Leipzig) and Stanisław Welbel (Warsaw), along with the participating artists, explore the freedoms and discourse public and private sponsorship permits. Additionally, the different artistic positions in the show comment on developments since the political upheaval in Poland in 1989 and the country’s changing role in the European Community.

On view are works by Paweł Althamer, Azorro (Oskar Dawicki, Igor Krenz, Wojciech Niedzielko, and Łukasz Skąpski), Tymek Borowski, Karolina Breguła, Elżbieta Jabłońska, Rafał Jakubowicz, Łukasz Jastrubczak, Anna Okrasko, Anna Molska, Agnieszka Polska & Witek Orski, Karol Radziszewski, Janek Simon, Konrad Smoleński, Monika Sosnowska, Iza Tarasewicz, and Piotr Wysocki.
