Olga Boznańska to najbardziej znana polska artystka przełomu XIX i XX w. W jej twórczości dominują niezwykle charakterystyczne portrety, na których modele wydają się przesłonięci mgłą. Efekt ten malarka osiągała nakładając farbę olejną na sucho na tekturę i nie wykańczając starannie prac.
W plebiscycie znajdziecie aż pięć obrazów autorstwa Boznańskiej, co pozwala zaobserwować ewolucję jej twórczości. Ciekawe, który spodoba się Wam najbardziej 😉

On this day, 16 July 1977, housewife Rita Ward began a "lie-in" at Northampton General Hospital. In pain from gallstones, she had been waiting 18 months for an operation and had been told she would need to wait another year, unless she could pay £500 for private treatment in which case it could be done the following day. So Rita, with support from hospital workers, got into bed and refused to leave until she was treated. Hospital management then caved and operated on her within a few days, without delaying any other operations. This is a short history of this small, but important act of working class resistance: https://libcom.org/history/1977-great-northampton-general-hospital-lie

@Gaachburi writes on Merit In The Time Of Nationalism: Why University Protests Matter
In what is basically an open conspiracy, the system often attempts to crush dissent by attacking the spaces which allow it to flourish – publicly-funded universities. It does this in multiple ways – for instance, by disallowing free speech in the form of censure from fundamentalist groups and administration, by curtailing the freedoms of women through patriarchal rhetoric of ‘family/for their own good’, and by systematically making access to these spaces more difficult for those from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds.
For those of us on the outside of these university protests, it is important to keep an eye on them as an indicator of whom the larger systems of governance and policy seek to serve. Additionally in this time of social media, fingertip activismoften can be useful where small movements need noise to be made. READ THE FULL ARTICLE BY CLICKING THE LINK IN BIO.
