Art Translating Agency

by Karolina Breguła

Art Translation Agency is a web-based organization where people are invited to order an explanation of a piece of art. The translators, who collaborate with the agency either work within the field of culture or are art lovers though not professional artists themselves.
The translators suggest interpretations often different than the scholarly ones. This way they present each work as an unfinished form, open for different interpretations and inviting participants to create new meanings.
Art Translation Agency intends to reveal that contemporary art happens to be difficult and everyone, even professionals in the field, must put a lot of effort into interpretation. At the same time the project is an experiment exploring what will happen to the famous works of art when they are viewed with a bit more freedom.
By interpreting in a non-traditional way Art Translation Agency is planning to create a commotion on the art information market.
Art Translation Agency is my diploma work at the National Film Television and Theatre School in Łódź, Poland.
