Katarzyna Kozyra captured the attention of the art world with the video of her intrusion into an all-male bathhouse, earning her honorable mention at the Venice Biennale in 1999. Since 2003 she has been working on In Art Dreams Come True, which consists of a series of performances, quasi-theatrical productions, and films. In creating the individual works, Kozyra has acted as director, chief performer, and as "raw material” in the hands of two master guides who assist her in assuming various roles. Gloria Viagra, the Berlin-based drag queen whom the artist sees as a model of "true femininity,” and the voice coach Grzegorz Pitulej, known as the Maestro, introduce Kozyra into worlds saturated with artificiality, convention, and posing. These features are central to each of Kozyra’s artistic characters, which include an opera diva, a drag queen, a cheerleader, Olympia from Offenbach’s opera, and Snow White.

Based on the success of volume one, the latest installment of The Helsinki School represents one of the most unique approaches to the state of conceptual photography today. Volume two is dedicated to sustaining the dialogue between one generation and another who have either taught, graduated, or attended the University of Art and Design Helsinki, Finland. It will accompany an exhibition with venues all over the world. This unique, richly illustrated publication, based on a concept by Timothy Persons and Jorma Puranen also looks ahead to the emerging next generation.
