Marysia Lewandowska is Polish born, London-based artist who has been exploring the public functions of archives, museums and exhibitions. She has initiated projects involving the property of others to create new relations between forms of knowledge and ownership, activating reflections on the social and immaterial public realm. She is co-editor with Laurel Ptak of Undoing Property? Sternberg Press 2013. In 2009 she launched The Women’s Audio Archive with recordings made in the 1980s reflecting on the value of alternative histories and the voice. Her most recent film project Rehearsing the Museum (2018) proposes a new typology for a museum in China, connecting financial and property speculation with cultural transformation of capital into commons. Her work has been presented by Tate Modern, Moderna Museet, Muzeum Sztuki, New Museum, Tapies Foundation, Kunstwerke, Whitechapel Gallery. She has served as Professor of Art in the Public Realm at Konstfack in Stockholm (2003-2013), Chinese University of Hong Kong (2014-2016) and most recently at Goldsmiths College, London.
