Teachers take 3D online guided tours of the A Question of Taste exhibition and get informed about the artworks. The exhibition deals with kitsch, a concept whose meaning has shifted since the 19th century, and the relationship this concept has established with today's visual culture as well as the concept of taste. We look at the exhibited works that question the concept of taste, which reinforces the separation of classes within the societal structure, through both objects, and the visual language that has dominated the Internet since the early 90s.
Admissions free, reservation required. The event will be held via the Zoom Meeting app. After the event, participants will receive a certificate of participation via e-mail.
Only available for groups of 10 - 80. Reservation required.
Duration: 30 minutes

Over the years of 1864 through 1876, Stanisław Chlebowski served Sultan Abdülaziz in Istanbul as his court painter. As it was, Abdülaziz disposed of considerable artistic talents of his own, and he actively involved himself in Chlebowski’s creative process, suggesting ideas for compositions –such as ballistic pieces praising the victories of Turkish arms.
Józef Brandt harboured a fascination for the history of 17th century Poland, and his favourite themes included ballistic scenes and genre scenes before and after the battle proper –all and sundry marches, returns, supply trains, billets and encampments, patrols, and similar motifs illustrating the drudgery of warfare outside of its culminating moments.
