The exhibition Lost Dog brings together four artists who live and work in Frankfurt-am-Main and study at the Städelschule. Their works are the product of a month-long residency the artists undertook in the center of Warsaw.

Taking inspiration from the zaginiony pies or “lost dog” leaflets that litter the city, the artists present differing, non-programmatic meditations on the themes of loss, ownership, and property that underlie the history of Warsaw. From the dissolution of the Duchy of Warsaw, to the renegotiation of borders after the Second World War, to the influx of Western capitalism after 1990, they investigate the problems at stake in a place so suspended between cultures and economies.
