Featuring selected artworks from the collection of CoCA Torun, the exhibition explores the problem of relations and diverse forms of life, including private, public, organic, post-human, local and artistic life. The exposition is also meant to highlight the importance of art in the contemporary world as visual arts tend to be underestimated in our country, artworks are regarded as frolics of jaded artists, and there is no time in the educational process assigned to the preparation of children for the reception of contemporary art. And yet art is a wealth both in material and symbolic terms. It presents an unconventional image of reality, stirs our imagination and encourages critical thinking. Art stands as priceless testimony to the time at which it was created. It enhances the prestige of a collector or the place where it is displayed. It may be the showpiece of a city, increasing its symbolic wealth. Accumulated with the utmost effort, a collection of contemporary art is a sign of the openness of the city and its readiness to discuss difficult issues. Art presents various points of view, emphasizes diversity of opinions but also teaches us to “differ harmoniously”, an idea that can be related to one of the main principles of democracy.
