Remedy – the idiom of Poznań Art Week 2020 – is an ambiguous word that today can be found in almost all media in the world. It is used with high expectations and with hope. People turn their eyes toward laboratories where scientists are doing their utmost to find a cure for the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus raging all over the globe – a virus that has radically changed our reality over just a couple of months.

We chose the word remedy as the idiom for the 4th edition of Poznań Art Week in October 2019. Back then, nothing suggested the events that were about to unfold. The theme of our art show was originally supposed to refer to the ambiguity of the title that oscillates between art being the synonym for a medicament and the artistic practice based on reusing existing objects and meanings (the Polish version of the title – Remedium – bears semblance to the phrase that means to reuse a medium). The outbreak of the global epidemic has unexpectedly created a new way for interpreting our event. The word remedy has gained new meanings.
