Towarzystwo Szubrawców

For their second show at Raster, the Slavs and Tatars col­lec­tive presents an instal­lation in the form of a pickle-​juice bar. The title Society of Rascals (Towarzystwo Szubrawców) was drawn from the name of a now-​forgotten literary society of 19th-century Vil­nius. The society was famous for its heavily ironic, caustic displays of satire that stood coun­ter to the self-​important stance of the roman­tics, their sooth­saying and exal­ted engagement in the nationalist discourse. Slavs and Tatars reference the group’s “pavement prose,” or specifically low-brow lan­guage, coupled with its cosmopolitan approach towards national iden­tity. They bring in the centuries-​old kit­chen tradition of pic­kling to ferment or turn sour the roman­tic con­cep­tion of father­land and power. The pic­kled juices served by the artists along with provocative lexical gym­nastics are meant to sug­gest an antidote for the pathos of Polish patriotism, while also expres­sing their own acerbic regard for any politics based on the oppositional binary of us-versus-them.
