Photographs of the Polish Transformation after 1989

October 15, 2014 – November 29, 2014


Curated by Adam Mazur, this exhibition brings together the work of ten photographers offering a glimpse into the past 25 years of photography in Poland and the transformations the country has undergone since 1989.

Organised in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of Poland, this show is the latest in the long line of events organised to commemorate 600 years of diplomatic relations between Turkey and Poland. Whereas most of the exhibitions have focused on Poland and the Ottoman Empire, this show provides a unique look into contemporary Poland. Scenes of marches and grim Soviet architecture are juxtaposed with desolate landscapes and the faces of Poland.

The participating photographers are Anna Beata Bohdziewicz, Kuba Dąbrowski, Elżbieta Janicka, Witold Krassowski, Chris Niedenthal, Konrad Pustoła, Szymon Rogiński, Tadeusz Rolke, Wojtek Wieteska and Wojtek Wilczyk.

The works are not for sale.
