Abstract: 

The paper analyses the spiritual and aesthetic messages of the artist Marek Sobczyk whose exposition, containing 15 metal paintings painted over aluminum iron (because it produces sounds and reflects light) with the enigmatic title Slavonic antiquities with S and Sh, represents a powerful stimulus for interdisciplinary studies aimed at active resistance to the global, ideological, and moral crisis of modernity and to discrimination of cultures. The exposition is a unique aesthetic attempt to overcome them.
