Curator: Agata Cukierska | In the maternity ward, accompanied by pain and screams, new works are created, preceded by their conceptions and anti-conceptions. The emergency ward admits urgent cases, some of them require resuscitation, some end up in black corpse bags. There is also an X-ray room and a laboratory. The dermatology ward treats eczemas, rash, blisters, spots and ulcers. Putting a stop to the ongoing degradation takes radical measures – often involving chemicals, aggressive bleaches. Along with the body, also the soul requires treatment – the psychiatric ward analyses the therapeutic and destructive qualities of art.
