Zbigniew Libera is one of the most popular and influential artists of Poland, whose works - photographs, films, installations and drawings - are permeated with subjectivity of contemporary culture. His shocking video "Intimate Rites" and "Mystical Perseverance", objects of "Correcting Devices" and the most famous work, which is a transformed toy for children, - "Lego Concentration Camp" - caused storming debates not only in the art circles, but also among the public. Since the advent of the «Lego» work Zbigniew Libera has become a pillar of the so-called "critical art". In recent years he was actively engaged in photography, including reportage press photos, created a series of works - "Positives" and "Masters".
