The premiere of the ARTE document "From Industry to Art" only on our website!

The international television ARTE has prepared a documentary in the series "From Industry to Art" dedicated to the Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź. It will be available to watch exclusively on the ms website until Sunday, March 13, 2022!

Spotlight on the Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź collection of radical contemporary art, which has flourished in the old textile factory in the heart of the industrial city of Lodz, dubbed the "Polish Manchester"





In the centre of the former textile metropolis of Łódź, Poland, you can find a real secret treasure: the Muzeum Sztuki, or MS for short, has two locations in the city. It is one of the world's oldest modern art museums, and the foremost European museum for radical avant-garde works.

- For us, it's a really important fact that our venue is a part of the former, big industrial structure of textile factories from the 19th century. MS2 is on the outskirts of one of the biggest industrial areas in the city. It's crucial because this situation allows us to create, I think, very powerful and fruitful juxtapositions of two aspects of modernity, or even more - says Jarosław Suchan, director of the museum for 15 years.

The permanent exhibition is a commentary on what has happened in densely populated areas since the Industrial Revolution. From "A", as in autonomy, to "C", for capital, and "R", for revolution, the ideas of progress are curated and reflected upon here using every imaginable material that has been available since 1900. So close, spatial relationship between avant-garde and manufacturing post-industrial area, help us to show the meaning of avant-garde, not only as a movement that wanted to change the formal language of art, but as a movement that wanted to change the reality shaped by capitalism. To act as a kind of crack in the monolith of the reality. This "modern world" has existed in Łódź for almost 200 years.


The film is available in the following languages: Polish, French, German, Italian.
