Kowalnia

Kowalski transferred this method of artistic endeavor to his educational activities. In its mature form, a series of classes titled "Obszar wspólny i własny / A Common and Individual Zone" (beginning with the 1981/82 academic year), it constituted an important current within Kowalski's third period of creativity, which began in 1980. In the 1990s, drawing on his students educated in the spirit of "education in partnership", Kowalski created an informal artistic group known as Pracownia Kowalskiego / Kowalski's Workshop (or Kowalnia / The Smithy), which included Paweł Althamer, Katarzyna Górna, Katarzyna Kozyra, Mariusz Maciejewski, Jacek Markiewicz, Monika Zielińska, and Artur Żmijewski.
