The World is experiencing a moment of stand-still during the events of Covid-19 pandemic. Surely it is affecting each one of us in many different ways. To some this means fear and uncertainty about the future, economic difficulties, to others – inspiration and time to create. This period brings ideas into surface, raises questions and debates about our healthcare and economic systems, ecological, political and social issues.
This is a series of posts featuring creative expressions made during Covid-19 pandemic, or previous works that are particularly relevant during these times of change.
Today we are sharing collage artworks by a Polish visual artist Pawel Pacholec, whose works draw inspiration from Dada movement, which formed as a response to the horrors of the First World War, Influenza (or The Spanish Flue) pandemic, and rejection of the ideas surrounding capitalist society and the emergence of industrial age. Sounds a bit familiar to the problems we face nowadays.
Can art transform the societies and our cultural systems?
