The catalogue is being published on occasion of the exhibition "DUSTribute" (March – May 2022) by the Polish artist Robert Kuśmirowski (born in 1973 in Łódź, Poland), with a new, comprehensive interview by Thomas Häusle and a text by Sina Wagner.
For Kunstraum Dornbirn, Kuśmirowski created a new, temporary and site-specific environment. Visually and atmospherically, his work was based on the film classic “Stalker” (1979) by Soviet director Andrei Tarkowsky. In the former assembly hall, the artist developed a post-apocalyptic scenery that completely transformed the space. Visitors found themselves in a world whose appearance resembled a fictional journey through time. Historical, cinematic and narrative reference systems interweave to form a story of existential peril and eerie beauty.
