We offer you a bilingual, Polish-English catalogue of the temporary exhibition “Climax” [“Klimaks”] in free access.
The publication provides an extensive commentary to the exhibition, which tells the story of the first Polish settlers in South America. The starting point for the exhibition was the relationship between man and nature, in particular the consequences that human migrations have on the natural environment. Consequently, Rafał Raczyński’s and Claudia Stefanetti Kojrowicz’s articles discuss the still largely unknown threads of Polish migration to the territories of present-day Brazil and Argentina.
The catalogue accompanying the exhibition follows this pro-ecological curatorial concept, which is described in the publication by curator Maksymilian Bochenek. This is reflected both in the selection of texts and in the very design of the catalogue prepared by Honza Zamojski.
A significant part of the catalogue was devoted to the photographic project “Waiting for Snow”, which is also the center of the exhibition “Climax” [“Klimaks”]. An extensive compilation of photographs by Katarzyna and Marianne Wąsowskie is presented in the publication accompanied by a commentary by Adam Mazur. In the article he contrasts “Waiting for Snow” with the current of contemporary sociological photography. The readers of the catalogue can also learn about the perspective of the loss of global biodiversity, discussed in a unique way by Robert Rient, as well as about the activity of the Biodiversitatis Foundation, presented in an interview by Marta Kolanowska, President of the organization.
Bearing in mind the wide availability of the publication, the project of the catalogue was created with a desire to meet the various needs of our audience. The publication contains descriptions of alternative photos, is machine-readable, and adapted to the needs of the visually impaired.
We encourage you to read the catalogue of the temporary exhibition “Climax” [“Klimaks”]. The catalogue in PDF format will open for download after clicking on this text.
If you are interested in the printed version of the catalog, please contact us by e-mail: email@example.com. The publication is offered free of charge, shipping by post at the recipient’s expense. The number of printed catalogs is limited – we send one copy to each interested person.
