Post Brothers is a critical enterprise that includes Matthew Post (b. 1984, Los Angeles), an enthusiast, word processor, and curator working from a small village near Białystok, Poland.

He has also curated exhibitions and presented projects in Poland, Mexico, Canada, the United States, Portugal, Denmark, Greece, Estonia, Germany, Austria, Lithuania, Italy, Sweden, Finland, Belgium, Latvia, The Netherlands, and China. His essays and articles have been published in a litany of art and culture magazines, as well as in numerous artist publications and exhibition catalogues. He also regularly participates in exhibitions with text-based, performative, discursive, or collaborative contributions, and lectures in art and academic settings across Europe.
How can the constant bombardment of shock and emergency and suffering in our world be harnessed as a source of power and collective strength? How do we act and unite in a world that constantly isolates and shocks us, destroying the very ecological and social systems in which we survive? Post Brothers examines how dissociated social interactions are translated into value and yellow coal channels emotions as a form of power.
