Description

Mozg was established in 1994 with a main aim to
promote contemporary arts as well as create a
supportive environment for interested artists. Indeed,
the people who are running the space are artists
themselves. Artists are always chosen according to
their artistic merit. Mozg is open to non-commercial
art, art which does not necessarily follow the latest
fashion. Mozg is closed for counterfeits and
imitations, as long as they can be recognized.
During the club’s seven-year
existence, several hundred musicians, performers,
visual artists and photographers from all over the
world have presented their work here. A number of
theatre productions and many film presentations have
also been realised there.

Often there have been between one to four art events
taking place every week in the space (concert,
exhibition, performance). A major festival "Music from
Mozg" was held in June 2000. The next festival is
scheduled for November 2002. There are future plans to
lower the frequency of events (especially concerts),
due to lack of satisfactory interest of public in the
more difficult music genders. A new initiative,
"Academy of Mozg", was created with the need to
analyse and debate over different types of texts,
written, spoken or other. For more information on
this, you may visit www.akademia.mozg.art.pl It is
hoped that "Cinema of Mozg" will start operating in
the beginning of 2002.
