Carmen Ansaldo's review of Christian Jankowski: Heavy-weight History at the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw

Christian Jankowski’s retrospective at the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle spans twenty years of the German artist’s most successful videos, performances and participatory experiments. The expansive survey includes sixteen of Jankowski’s most notable works and consumes most of the Centre’s second floor. The comprehensive nature of this survey enables its audience to witness the thematic development of the concepts to which Jankowski has devoted himself since the early ’90s. The evolution of his practice has been elucidated through the curatorial direction of Ewa Gorządek, who resisted a chronological ordering of the artist’s work in favour of establishing thematic links between his projects.
