REVOLVING TRUTH Performative Actions by artists, curators, musicians, singers, actors and writers... National Museum in Warsaw Al. Jerozolimskie 3 00-495 Warsaw Poland Saturday 23. September 2017 14:00 – 16:00 The term ‚Truth’ might signify that facts are represented unbiased and impartial, accordingly to the real course of events. Truth might include the evidential proof or probability of theory in relation to natural laws and the natural flow of things. But indeed ‚Truth’ implies much more. Truth is an expression for the relation and connection of the human being to life, existence, friends, family, the society, the nature and the metaphysical. Truth is about honesty, sincerity and integrity. It is the manifestation of respect to reasoning and to esteem the arguments of others. Such truthful relation to life and existence is also about emotions and feelings, something that cannot be said with words alone. It is expressed last but not least in art, in music, in poetry, in dance and performing. Revolving Truth is dedicated to the seemingly old fashioned term of Truth and is referring also to one part of the classic trinity of ‚The Good, The True and The Beautiful’. Revolving Truth develops as performative short actions by lecturing, reading, screening and artistic interventions, which intend to express the understanding and meaning of Truth from a creative and artistic perspective. Organized in an orchestrated dramaturgy and taking place in the Main Hall of the National Museum in Warsaw, Revolving Truth wants to involve the audience in a process of motivation, as an impetus to think for themselves what such a classical category and value symbolizes and signifies for our shared intellectual, emotional and political reality.
