A collection of essays about the work of Polish artist Julia Curyło and an album of works by the artist representing a generation of Central and Eastern European artists born in the 1980s.

In this book, art historian Joanna Paneth takes us on a journey through the work and life of Polish contemporary painter and sculptor Julia Curyło, whose sensual and energetic artwork is known for addressing ambiguities of the contemporary world. 

Exploring selected paintings from Curyło’s series focusing on space and existential themes, Paneth introduces a relatively new current reflected in the artist’s work: space art. From there, Paneth’s in-depth analysis discusses the artist’s work in a broader cultural context, incorporating the wider history of art, religion, and philosophy and revealing Curyło’s many intertwined references to religion, consumerism, women’s art history, science and technology, migrations, and kitsch.
