19 March - 23 June, 2019

Puppets: Theater, Film, Politics, situates puppet theatre within the field of art history and within the broader context of the artistic, social, and political changes taking place in Poland in the 1950s and 1960s. The presentation of selected works, artists, and creative hubs, among them Paulina Olowska, has been woven around concepts such as anthropology of the body, pedagogy, or politics. The show’s authors broaden the reflection on the meanings and functions of puppets, asking about their political dimension. They exemplify diverse strategies of their use — from the exploitation of the propaganda repertoire to caricatural and derisive representations of ideological opponents – while highlighting their dangerous potential.

Paulina Olowska's work for the Liverpool Biennial is titled Grace, Charles and the Sunflower, a mosaic that references the socialist belief that through the creation of a public work one can influence and present optimistic visions of a better world. The idea is based on a Polish mosaic from the 1960s situated on the side of a public school in the village of Raba Zdroj, where the artist lives.
