Discovering people: Tomasz Sikorski

18 Apr

Professor Klinkowstein invites yet another guest lecturer to Hofstra for an interesting twist on the current topic in the syllabus. This lecturer was a professor friend of his from Poland, who used to run a gallery and currently speaks and designs as a New Media Artist operating throughout Europe.

Sikorski described to us wee students an outlining of thought very similar to that of Nigel Whitely’s Valorized Designer. His lecture detailed three aspects of Engaged Art throughout Europe in the 20th and 21st centuries, which involved displaying powerful and at times, poignant arts in various styles, from performance art to graffiti. It was a fantastic mindset he displayed, and looking more into his work was key to fully grasping his intent with his work (which you can see here).
