Zbigniew Libera’s shocking and subversive photographs, videos, installations, and objects, critique the stereotypes of contemporary culture. In mid-90s, Libera began to create Correcting Devices, modifications of already existing products of mass consumption such as a penis expander, a bodybuilding kit for children under 9 years old, and "Ken’s Aunt” barbie dolls complete with love handles. He often designs toys and products for children as a way to expose the mechanisms of education, upbringing, and cultural conditioning, the most famous of which is a concentration camp built out of Legos. More recently, the artist has turned his attention towards press photography and the media’s effect on visual memory and history.
Libera has had solo exhibitions at prominent Polish cultural institutions such as Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle and Zachęta National Art Gallery. His works have been included in group exhibitions internationally, at institutions including MUMOK in Vienna, Kunst Werke in Berlin, Hamburger Banhof in Berlin and Jeu de Paume in Paris. In 1997 he was appointed to represent Poland at the 46th Venice Biennale, but his work Lego—Concentration Camp was withdrawn due to censorship.
