“Post-production is a film program selected from the Enthusiasts: archive (enthusiastsarchive.net). The archive is the result of the artists’ extensive research into films made by amateur film clubs that were active in Poland during the Socialist period. These films have been restored and made available online through ‘open content’ licenses. The archive enables visitors to explore the generosity of the enthusiast, which reveals a range of interests and experiences generally invisible amongst the breathless flow of State funded, or professional films. Our intention through Enthusiasts: archive is to generate interest and discussion about the nature of contemporary creative exchange, the function of public archives and the future of the public domain.” Neil Cummings & Marysia Lewandowska
Neil Cummings & Marysia Lewandowska have been collaborating together since 1995. They have worked with museums, banks, galleries, archives, auction houses, schools and department stores. They have investigated the smuggling of goods across the Polish-Ukrainian border, documented the lost property recovered in the London transport system in a single day and impersonated a famous art dealer. Their different projects have consistently engaged with the relationship between art and institutions coupled with other domains such as politics, society and economics.
