'Miejsce. Studia nad sztuką i architekturą polską XX i XXI wieku' no. 6, 2020
The History of Art in Poland and the Holocaust


In this, the 6th volume of 'Miejsce. Studia nad sztuką i architekturą polską XX i XXI wieku,' we break down historical-artistic discourses, dissemble familiar epistemes, and open up new vistas for research. The texts gathered in this volume are an attempt to reinterpret Polish culture through the many aspects of the experience of the Shoah. Our intention is to treat the Holocaust as the epicenter of a transhistorical and transgenerational experience in Poland's history of art, while at the same time remaining sensitive to the distinctions involved in the many positions occupied by witnesses, bystanders, observers, viewers, onlookers and, finally, perpetrators. The articles collected here abandon the rhetoric of certainty. These studies either implicitly or explicitly demand a fundamental rethinking of the state and limitations of our discipline. In considering works from, about or after the Holocaust, we emphasize the need for re-professionalization on the one hand, and an imperative for the extreme expansion of art history, on the other. They also encourage the reader to go beyond the existing paradigms of art history which have left the visual records and material remains discussed here in a limbo of ethnography, archaeology, museal curiosities, court exhibits or testimonial practices.
