Maciej Hoffman: be free for art

Maciej Hoffman's exhibition for the Limmud Conference 2014 is at the Mead Gallery Warwick until Thursday 1st January 2015.

Maciej writes that 'some achievements of mankind are simultaneously defeats of humanism: sophisticated life-penetrating systems, which can reduce us to be just filled forms in some mysterious registers; special tests and scales for measurement and classification of our intellect and emotions. Our creativity is being used for construction of more perfect and “magnificent” systems of control. The space for what is irrational, imperfect or disordered becomes increasingly narrow.

Freedom leaves us step by step.

What is free of supervision, what is beyond of statistics and classifications, what is the only one real margin of freedom we can use – that’s the creation, that is art.'
