We Are People for the third time

Third opening of the exhibition “We Are People” takes place on September 11th at Galeria Labirynt. More than 20 artists took part in the first exhibition. After two weeks more artists joined us, and now viewers would have an opportunity to see dozens of works created by those who express their opposition to homophobia and hate speech.

 

The exhibition is gradually growing – more artists are joining us, sending their works. At the exhibition viewers can see documentation from protests, installations, videos and collages. During the opening, a performance is going to be held. It is the result of artistic workshop led by Filip Kijowski.

 

“We Are People” is a group exhibition created in response to the homophobic statement of the President of the Republic of Poland, Andrzej Duda, in which he called Polish citizens the LGBT Ideology. The exhibition presents the works of artists relating to the problem of exclusion, hate speech, homophobia and racism. During the crisis of the coronavirus pandemic and the equally terrifying crisis of values, we present works that for the most frightened and closed ones can be manifestation of a “threatening ideology”. Artists do not accept this fear and closure. Art, the definition of which is still elusive, the real space of freedom and free human creation provokes thinking that is different from media news, public debates or criticism. Art “thinks differently”. It takes the time and concentration we need to discover and experience new meanings. “Monsters exist, but they are too few in number to be truly dangerous. More dangerous are the common men, the functionaries ready to believe and to act without asking questions,” wrote Primo Levi. The exhibition “We Are People” does not allow us to remain indifferent.
