The Bunkier Sztuki Collection comprised over a hundred works by thirty eight artists. The compilation reflects the exhibition history of the Gallery as well as the most interesting trends in contemporary Polish art. However, for us, the Collection represents, above all, action and experimentation. We seek out new avenues of development, focusing on young artists, on multimedia art and on non-standard creative techniques. Our activities are based on close collaboration with artists – we aim to ensure that a proportion of works are created especially for Bunkier, as the artist’s trademark statement about the Gallery.
