Zuzanna Ginczanka. Only Happiness is Real Life
September 21 - December 30, 2018
Exhibition Hall, Center for Urban History
An exhibition is an attempt to depict a personality and creative work of a Polish poetess of Jewish origin, Zuzanna Ginczanka, one of the most talented but underappreciated women authors writing in the interwar period.
An incredible personality and creative work of Zuzanna Ginczanka is represented with archive materials from the collection of Adam Mickiewicz Museum of Literature in Warsaw. They include manuscripts and photographs from Ginczanka’s private albums, as well as modern art pieces metaphorically related to life and work of the poetess selected by the curators of Modern Polish Art Fund.
The exhibition is an attempt to present a poetic world in a language of visual art that combines the domain of images and words.
The exhibition will also include a follow-up public program and author’s guided tours.
