In 1979 in Milan Maurizio Buscarino, a remarkable Italian artist, photographed the rehearsals and performance of Apocalypsis cum Figuris by the Laboratory Theatre, as well as recordings of the film documenting this performance. Until now only some of his pictures were published. After years – at the Grotowski Institute’s request – the author edited the rest of the photographs and chose some of them especially for the exhibition in the historical space of the Laboratory Theatre where Apocalypsis was created in 1968. This selection, which includes forty seven pictures, makes the time travel possible. Thanks to it we have a possibility to encounter the historical work of Jerzy Grotowski and his group in unique way.

The exhibition will be open until the 31st January 2009 at the Grotowski Institute and after that it will be transferred to the Lower Silesian’s Photography Centre – “Domek Romanski”, Gallery of the Centre of Art and Culture in Wroclaw (pl. bpa Nankiera 8, Wroclaw). Opening of an exhibition in “Domek Romanski” is planned for the end of March 2009.

We wish to thank Roberta Secchi for her invaluable help.
