Michał Jachuła’s tour leads through the exhibition “Der Keller” of the Polish artist Monika Zawadzki. Having followed her work for many years, Jachuła provides insight into Zawadzki’s artistic practice around the most central themes in her work such as the rejection of anthropocentrism, ideas of a post-human society as well as her research on relationships between animate and inanimate matter. Discussing single works presented in the exhibition Jachuła talks about the artist’s approach to questions of identity, rules and orders governing different entities and subjects.
