ART TRANSLATING AGENCY
2010 / online project
Art Translation Agency was an online agency for interpreting art. It could be contacted by anyone who found it difficult to understand a work of art. The agency collaborated with a group of translators that embraced professionals from the cultural sector and amateur art lovers. They suggested interpretations that frequently differed from those formulated by artists and curators. As a result, every work could be treated as an open-ended form which opened up to various explanations and thus invited the viewer to co-create its meanings. By introducing new interpretations, different from those sanctioned by institutions, Art Translation Agency intended to stir confusion on the “information market” of meanings of contemporary artists’ works.
Art Translation Agency was Karolina Breguła’s diploma work created under the supervision of Prof. Józef Robakowski at the Film School in Łódź.
