Józef Robakowski (born 1939 in Poznań, lives and works in Łódź, Poland) is an artist and creator of experimental films
, installations, performances
, as well as a cultural promoter and art theorist. He coordinated some key artistic movements of the second half of the twentieth century in Poland, from the collective Zero-61 (1961-1969), which was inspired by the tradition of metaphorical montage used by avant-garde cinema, to the Workshop of the Film Form (Warsztaty Formy Filmowej, 1970-1977). As promoter of the Polish progressive artistic movement, his research led him to question the language
, mechanics and material of film, uniting these elements with an interest in the avant-garde conceptual
tradition filtered through the lens of authenticity and personal identity.
