Shawn Ghassemitari, HYPE ART, July 12, 2021

Football hooliganism takes the high seat in Polish artist Marcin Dudek’s latest exhibition, “Slash & Burn II.” Housed at Brussels’s Harlan Levey Projects, Dudek assembles an intimate portrait of his own coming of age as a working class football fan in Polands transitionary period from Communism to Capitalism. A period fraught with decaying infrastructure, poor governance and a search for new identity, amidst a changing political landscape.
