Wokół Etosu nowej sztuki Jolanty Brach-Czainy


This text is an analysis of Jolanta Brach-Czaina’s collection of articles from the 1980s entitled Etos nowej sztuki [The Ethos of New Art]. At that time, the philosopher did not analyze the art of women (with the exception of Teresa Murak), nor did she use a feminist interpretive lens. She consistently sought emancipatory and community-based tendencies in art. The philosopher’s later article Radykalna sztuka kobiet [The Radical Art of Women], the lack of public access to broader knowledge about her biography, and the posthumous memoirs of her five friends/students provide the context.
