Poster for the event »Desktop Exhibition«


A Desktop Exhibition is a public presentation on a desktop, conducted on a laptop, a private screen. It is a curatorial format developed by Matylda Krzykowski. The curator clicks on files on the desktop similar to walking through a physical space and guiding you through the exhibition.

Matylda Krzykowski is a curator, designer, art director, scenographer, advisor and educator focusing on collaborative and performative projects in physical and digital space. Krzykowski’s work is introspective, as it explores and experiments with the inner mechanisms of design, art and architecture. As such, her projects dissect the design process to its different stages – from material and personal origins, to methodologies and education; from network and politics to social projections, and the spectrum in between.
With a strong perspective on transdisciplinarity as discipline of communication, her work within these questions explores not only content but also form, for which interdisciplinary and artistic links are made. Among others, her tools of exploration have included choreography, reportage, TV game shows, theater and innovative and experimental formats that range between exhibitions, workshops, interventions and talks.
