Multimedia Fountain

Artists Piotr Kmita
Genre Object
Edition Survival 11

The work made an ironic reference to the most obvious trope in the history of contemporary art. Duchamp’s Fountain from 1914 is a classical work known to all, not only experts in the field. A child’s potty which played songs, displayed in the main hall of the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, may be interpreted in the following way: the level of teaching reflects the level of art. The title of the work refers to Wrocław’s cultural policy. Inasmuch as Multimedia Fountain is a lame joke from the area of low-brow culture, the fountain by the Centennial Hall makes a joke of high-brow culture.
