Leaving is a repetition of Workers leaving the Lumière factory in Lyon by the Lumière brothers. My remake of this film was done in front of the Northern entrance to the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw and features employees of the institution. The employees leave through the narrow door one by one: the first one is the leader of the labour union, then the personnel of the documentation, accounting and promotion departments, curators, coordinators, assistants, cleaning staff... And at the end, of course, the director.
