An illustrated catalog of performances and installations by a central figure of Polish performance art, Janusz Bałdyga (b. 1954), including documentation of his performance “Process and Construction” which he presented in Munich in 1985. A graduate of the Academy of Fine arts in Warsaw (1979), Bałdyga was one of the founding members of the performance art group Pracownia and co-led the eponymous gallery in Warsaw, becoming an active member of the Polish neo-avant-garde and conceptualist circle. Printed in Polish and English, the catalog was published by the BWA gallery (Biuro wystaw artystycznych) established in Lublin in 1956, one of the few galleries that promoted contemporary art in the 1970s and 1980s focusing on formal experimentation.
