In the 2nd part of the presentation, Karol Radziszewski recapitulates the path traveled already to realize his latest project America Is Not Ready For It. The inspiration and starting point for the film was the polish artist Natalie LL´s stay in New York in 1977.

 

Thirty-four years later he decided to travel to America to meet with artist and gallery owners, which Natalia LL met during her stay in US. Based on a few black-and-white-photographs and some names he began his artistic investigation. He interviewed Marina Abramovic, Carolee Schneemann, AA Bronson, the galerist Antonio Homem, critic Douglas Crimp(…). These protagonists recall the atmosphere of New York in the 1970s and convey a picture of what Natalia LL could be confronted with at this time. Karol Radziszewski raises a series of questions on issues such as conceptual art, feminist art, gender, queer and East-West relations and their impact in the art world during times of the Iron Curtain.

 

What i find important in all my projects, is to explore the border of history, history of art and personal life the illusory universality and an attempt to separate art from personal life , whether someone is a woman or a man, black, gay or whatever.
