Karkowski / Xenakis (Extended) EN

image001

The central theme of this series devoted to Zbigniew Karkowski is to connect the Polish composer’s work to the influence of Iannis Xenakis. The program also features Karkowski’s little known instrumental and vocal music performed by his closest associates. Aside from concerts by Apartment House, Anton Lukoszevieze, Aleksander Gabyś, Kasper Toeplitz, Chór Gęba and others, the series will feature an exhibition of video works, screening of two films, as well as discussions with artists.
