Prof. M. Wieczorek Lecture “Katarzyna Kobro Composing Space” on ZOOM

Between 1925 and 1933, Polish sculptor Katarzyna Kobro made a series of groundbreaking abstract Spatial Compositions. ‘As it becomes united with space,’ she wrote about these works, ‘the new sculpture should be its most condensed and essential part.’ In this lecture we will trace the artist’s discovery that the ‘simplest and most appropriate’ solution to the question of the essence of sculpture was the ‘shaping of space’ itself.
