Each time - through another ‘vehicle’, referring to different senses, other knowledge and various skills. For we can learn about art and artworks from their copies, or forgeries or reproductions and but also thanks to various gadgets, audio-communication or convex printing. They will be presented in the gallery so that everyone can experience the real works hidden in them.

This will be the last opportunity to see one of the most important exhibition projects of the Year of Avant-garde in Poland series. During the walk the curator will talk about how avant-garde art has reflected changes in human behaviour towards the environment, inspired primarily by the development of natural sciences and technology.

The following galleries and museums have submitted their artworks: Tate in London, Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, The State Museum of Contemporary Art - Costakis Collection in Thessaloniki and Moderna Museet in Stockholm.

Virtual / Real in the Neoplastic Room
A faithful to the original reconstruction of the Neoplastic Room can now be seen in the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid at the exhibition "Kobro and Strzemiński. Avant-Garde Prototypes", prepared by the Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź". In the capital of Spain there are currently the original works by the artists from the Museum collection. Reversing the Madrid situation, especially for the Long Night of Museums, we have prepared the presentation of … virtual works in the real hall. Using a specially arranged space, the viewers will be able to see the works of Władysław Strzemiński, Theo van Doesburg, Henryk Stażewski, Jean Helion and Vilmos Huszar in a virtual reality, and from a completely different, inaccessible during a traditional visit, perspective.
The presentation is prepared by the Plastic group
