Józef Robakowski, a key figure of the 1960s and 1970s neo-avant-garde rebellion, is a master of structural cinema and a pioneer of Polish video art. In his practice he has tested viewers’ perceptual habits, developed ideas about mechanical recordings beyond any aesthetic convention, and criticized methods of visual persuasion in films, highlighting in particular the pompousness of political spectacles. A radical experimentalist and media analyst, Robakowski is known for his unique approach, “his own cinema,” in which autobiography replaces dubious history, and in which the artist proposes his own scenario for perceiving the reality of life under communism. The book, published in collaboration with the Luigi Pecci Centre for Contemporary Art and the Profile Foundation on the occasion of the exhibition “Józef Robakowski: Nearer – Further,” full of illustrations and descriptions of the work, contains an interview by Hans Ulrich Obrist with the artist and an interview between Fabio Cavallucci, the Artistic Director of Centro per l’Arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci, and Marina Abramović, a colleague and friend of Robakowski in the years they both lived and worked in communist bloc countries. Edited by Hans Ulrich Obrist
