Tadeusz Kantor (1915OCo1990) was one of the twentieth centuryOCOs most innovative visual artists, stage directors, and theoreticians. His theatre productions and manifestos challenged the conventions of creating art in postOCoWorld War II culture and expanded the boundaries of Dada, surrealist, Constructivist, and happening theatre forms. KantorOCOs most widely known productionsOCoThe Dead Class (1975), Wielopole, Wielopole (1980), Let the Artists Die (1985), and Today Is My Birthday (1990)OCohave had a profound impact on playwrights and artists who continue today to engage with his radical theatre.In Further on, Nothing, Michal Kobialka explores KantorOCOs theatre practice from the critical perspective of current debates about representation, memory, and history. He pursues the intriguing proposition that Kantor gave material form to a theatre practice that defined the very mode of postmodern operation and that many of its theoretical notions are still in circulation. According to Kobialka, KantorOCOs theatre still offers an answer to reality rather than a portrayal of a utopian alternative. Further on, Nothing includes new translations of KantorOCOs work, presented in conversation with KobialkaOCOs own theoretical analyses, to show us a Kantor who continues to offerOCoand deliver onOCothe promise of the avant-garde."
