The publication accompanies the exhibition to commemorate the centenary of the birthday of Karol Wojtyła. It carries a curatorial text by Delfina Jałowik on the works presented in the exhibition and also a text by Stanisław Obirek on the phenomenon of John Paul II.
In this publication we present several topics that were dominant in his artistic work. The publication contains texts by Sebastian Stankiewicz, Maria Anna Potocka and Marlena Nikoda as well as Władysław Stróżewski’s memories of Roman Ingarden.
The publication includes reminiscences about Dymny by people associated with the cabaret Piwnica pod Baranami (Cellar under the Rams), an interview with Anna Dymna, and a comprehensive timeline by Monika Wąs – the biographer of Wiesław Dymny and Piotr Skrzynecki. The illustrated section of the book is the first-ever album presentation of the visual art of Wiesław Dymny.
The catalogue presents a less-known part of the poet's work: postcard-size collages, which had been sent to her friends over many years. The texts on these minimalist compositions have been written by Małgorzata Baranowska, Maria Anna Potocka, Michał Rusinek. The catalogue also includes an interview with Ryszard Krynicki. The publication comprises nearly 150 photographic reproductions of Wisława Szymborska's works.
The Anti-War Bulletin that accompanies the exhibition World War II – Drama, Symbol, Trauma with its graphic design echoes newspapers of the 1920s and 1930s. It has been subdivided into sections titled after parts of the exhibition, in the order of display. The publication, available in Polish and English, will prove useful when viewing the exhibition.
