The foundation of my research is my artistic practice in the field of performance art. It is a practice-based research including three artistic works. The context of this research is the capitalism in its contemporary form. What are the qualities demanded of subjectivity in the contemporary neoliberal context? What is the particular locus of artistic production or live art in this context? The focus of this exposition is my second artistic work Life in Bytom. Bytom is a former mining town in Upper Silesia, Poland. I visited this place several times during 2012. Each of these trips lasted around seven days. These visits were composed of workshops, interviews, field trips andsmall events, which produced source material for an affective interpretation of the situation. The final works, a scripted performance, an installation and a video piece were presented at the Kronika from the end of November 2012 to the end of January 2013.
