Join us at e-flux Screening Room on Saturday, February 18 at 5 pm for Between the Real and the Imaginary, a screening of works by Agnieszka Polska followed by an in-person conversation with the artist. 

In her body of work, Agnieszka Polska challenges conventions of prevalent visual representations and encourages viewers to engage in a critical examination of their own perception of the surrounding world. Through her distinct use of animation and computer-generated images, Polska navigates the boundaries between past and present, physical and virtual, real and imaginary, creating a dream-like cinematic space that is both familiar and strange. A selection of Polska's moving-image works from 2010 to the present will address cultural and political issues such as the complexities of historical memory, the impact of technology on our lives, and the deepening of the environmental crisis.

The event is organized in partnership with the Polish Cultural Institute New York.
