In the Tender Museum project, images of the Muzeum Sztuki, found in media and film archives, sound recordings enclosed by copyright and private photographic collections are combined in the process of redistributing and fictionalising the encounter with archival sources. By insisting on releasing previously unseen materials into the public domain the project directly re-imagines the foundational act of generosity associated with every museum. Central to the project are questions concerning the use of documents and their role in reinforcing existing hierarchies. By researching and recovering the figure of Urszula Czartoryska (1934-1998), critic, curator and wife of the Muzeum Sztuki prominent director Ryszard Stanislawski (1921-2000), a different picture emerges as to the role she played in shaping the museum’s programme.
