Kasia Fudakowski, Word Count 04: The Martyrdom of Professor Sanchez (still)

The first time we encountered the work of Kasia Fudakowski was during the event Maria Guggenbichler curated in 1646 in 2015, The Lottery Ticket night – an evening about value. We thought her video Pessimistinnen was brilliant. There was a cleverness and distinct sense of humor, probably tinted by her British (humor) background, full of sarcasm and self-ridicule that worked as powerful tools for reflection. It made a strong impression on us. We decided to invite Kasia to do a performance at 1646 in 2016. During her performance Tap and Die – A lecture on the work of Andy Kaufman and Lee Lozano, Kasia again managed to merge an experience of struggle, directness, laughter and lightness with a full mastering of the tragi-comic. The idea to work with Kasia on a bigger project stayed in our minds since.

Now, two years later, we are very excited to work with Kasia on her new project. During our Berlin – The Hague skype meeting, just listening to her first ideas left us fascinated. She has this ability to find visual forms far, from any literal translation, that serve to explore her captivating mindmap of socially engaged ideas and psychology. With Kasia you have the feeling she blocking the front door, not letting you run out of reality while always keeping a witty and relaxed smile on her face.

For her background evening Kasia Fudakowski will compile an evening that gives context to the current exhibition at 1646 Rose Pantopon and the Wheel of Fortune.
