Half a century ago, an avant-garde group of artists – the Film Form Workshop – was active at the Łódź Film School. Functioning between 1970 and 1977, the research circle realized experimental and unconstrained activities in the area of film art, photography, and the relationship between image and sound, which are an important prelude to today’s activities in media art.
Triple axis is the next (after Warsaw) installment of the Audio-Visual Workshop, where, in their performances, Aleksandra Chciuk, Filip Gabriel Pudło, and Bartłomiej Talaga delineate three axes of sensitivity, wishing to recall the experimental and multimedia character of the Film School, while inviting us to celebrate 75 years of the school’s existence and the 30th anniversary of the Photography specialization they studied. Without the activities of the Film Form Workshop, Photography would not have been recognized as a separate important academic discipline. To this day, the Department of Photography continues to educate and develop excellent photographers as well as multimedia artists. Above all, it is a space for the freedom of images that, unconstrained by their two-dimensionality, expand into spaces: moving images, virtual realities, sound or performative gestures.
