Jerzy Ludwiński

was a theoretician, a lecturer, and an advocate for art practices in which, “instead of making art objects, [artists] simply produce their writings, which serve as the basis for the materialization of the objects.” Involved in the organization of the Nationwide Symposium Puławy ’66 and the formulation of the program of the Museum of Current Art, Wrocław – a “museum of play”. He is considered to be the co-author of the Polish conceptual art movement. Ludwiński anticipated the need for a completely new art that would be totally immaterial and independent from institutional support. He divided the development of art into six phases – we are currently in the fourth, the stage of meta-art, which absorbs reality. Eventually we will arrive at the zero phase – art which absolutely cannot be shown in a conventional manner (for instance at an exhibition), it can only be “implied.”
