Contemporary Lynx Magazine 2(16)2021


The main theme: FORECAST
What will the world of culture and art look like in 2050?


For several years now, there has been a lively debate about the future in relation to many factors: environment, economy, social policy, and technology. In a reality in which discussions about artificial intelligence, cryptocurrencies or commercial space flights are gaining popularity, we would like to pay particular attention to the arts and culture sector. On this basis, we have joined forces to outline potential future developments, opportunities, issues, actions, needs, and changes that we may witness in our lifetime. Can we foresee the changes ahead? Let’s find out together.


The first step in the discussion on the future of art is the cover featuring the work of Patricia Piccinini, an artist whose artistic practice focuses on exploring the boundaries of science and technology through her sculptures, photographs, videos, and installations. In our conversations with Patricia Piccinini and Angelika Markul we explore the importance of the relationship between nature, culture, and technology.

For this issue we invited six art curators and institutional directors from all over the world to select the most important artist who had a real impact on the last decades. The article mentions names such as Lina Lapelytė, Ciprian Mureşan, or Jean Tinguely. We also take a look at future museums and the way technology alters our experience of culture, art, and education. You will have the opportunity to take a closer look at the works by Katja Novitskova, who focuses on evolutionary processes, digital imagery, and corporate aesthetics. Especially for our readers we interviewed Christian Ward, the Head of Multimedia at Stylus, who oversees research, reporting, and presentations on emerging trends in marketing, advertising, culture, and media.

In this issue we continue to discover the world of the film and theatre industry. In 2021 we celebrate the centenary of the birth of Stanisław Lem, on this occasion we recommend an essay revolving around ‘Solaris’ by Lem and its adaptation for the big screen by Andrei Tarkovsky. What’s more, our series on the Great Directors gives you a unique opportunity to take a look at the previously unpublished script ‘Baby’ by Krzysztof Kieślowski.
