A retrospective of Walerian Borowczyk’s work is accompanied by a book titled Corpus Delicti by Kuba Mikurda and Jakub Wojnarowski. This is a catalogue of surreal objects and a presentation of material evidence of Borowczyk's artistic transgression. Corpus delicti is a visual essay, which uses from the achievements of psychoanalysis and theoretical writings of André Breton, as well as from the referrings to the XIX-th century prayer’s books and XVIII-th century libertine novels. Today, you can participate in a performative lecture - the guided tour through a collection of objects collected in the Corpus Delicti and a presentation of video-essay arisen during of work on the book.
