“How Culture Works?” is a short video created by the artist Tymek Borowski in collaboration with Rafał Dominik and Jakub Maiński. The leading part was played by Marta Manowska. HCW is a practical guide to effective use of culture – a structure that organizes the way we live our lives and how we function. The premiere took place in “Zachęta” National Gallery of Art in Warsaw. You can watch the movie on YouTube or at the website www.howcultureworks.pl.

Some people do things well, others don’t. Those who do them well, have more sex and pay their mortgage faster. And that raises a question: is there a general rule defining how to do things well?

What is the link between culture and the pace of paying off mortgage? What does even culture mean? Why do cultures vary and are some of them better then other? Why some parts of culture get outdated, while others haven’t changed for thousands of years? Why some elements can be easily replaced, while others resist change, although they are rather destructive than beneficial? What does multiculturalism mean today?
