Anna Kutera (born in 1952) graduated from the Faculty of Painting, Graphics Art and Sculpture at the State College of Fine Arts in Wroclaw (now Academy of Fine Arts) in 1977. Her artistic activities include film, video, photography, painting, installation and performance. She combined her artistic activities with the activities of an artistic community animator. She was active within ‘Conceptual Contextualism’ as a Feminist practitioner in Poland in the 1970s. In 1975-1980, together with Jan Świdziński, she co-organised the international movement of contextual art, focused on researching contexts of artistic productions, which extended the concepts and patterns of the then-dominating conceptualism.
Kutera has exhibited extensively in Poland and internationally, most notably in Galerie Kunstpunkt (Berlin), Documenta 7 (Kassel, Germany), Guggenheim Museum (NYC), Polish Woman’s Film 1970-80 (NYC), Museum of Modern Art (Sao Paulo, Brasil), Art Museum Gelsenkirchen (Germany), Galerie der Kunstler (Munich, Germany), Fluss Association, Schloss Wolkersdorf (Vienna, Austria), Drents Museum (Assen, Holland), Banff Center (Canada), Artculture Resource Centre (Toronto, Canada), Museum of City of Copenhagen (Denmark).
