Guidebook - Kulturalna Warszawa
Dear Varsovians,
This year’s Long Night of Museums will be already the 12th edition
of this extraordinary celebration of culture, art and science in the
Capital City. The form of this event has not changed since the very
beginning: invariably, over the course of several nighttime hours,
various institutions and venues wish to present the most interesting
aspects of their activity, and Varsovians invariably visit them in great
numbers.
This year, there are 237 museums, galleries, studios, foundations,
schools, embassies, state institutions and many, many others
awaiting guests. Each of them attracts visitors with an interesting
programme, available in many cases on this one night exclusively.
Traditionally, there will be special bus lines created, transporting
Varsovians and tourists from one venue to another. I wish to
encourage you to make use of Veturilo bicycles as well.
I invite you to get acquainted with this guidebook, which
will help you make your own sightseeing plans.

attach to eradicating pathological attitudes,
harmful for nature. We will watch works by,

The exhibition is dedicated to the creative output

touched on by Spectra Art Centre in a series
titled Masters. Wojciech Fangor is one of the
most important contemporary classical artists
in the world and – importantly – he is still
creatively active. The exhibition will present
the master’s most recent project. It refers to
an issue of serious importance with reference to
the whole of Wojciech Fangor’s oeuvre, namely
space. Influenced by outstanding architect and
art theorist, Stanisław Zamecznik, who was
also his friend, Wojciech Fangor embarked on
What goes on in the theatre when the curtain
falls, spot-lights are off and the buzz of children’s
voices fades away? How does a moonlit foyer
look like? Do theatre dolls sleep nicely in their
spots? Whose steps may be heard in empty
rooms of the theatre, when the last employee
locks the door behind them?
On this extraordinary night, Guliwer Theatre
unveils its new, unknown face for visitors.
A few weeks before a premiere, actors will dare
to check if one is allowed to cut into the silence
of a nighttime theatre. They will invite spectators
for a rehearsal of a new play, the hero of which
is Ugly Duckling. Will they get away with it?
Rumour has it, the theatre is guarded at night

“Checkpoint” – exhibition of works by Polish
documentary doyen, Tadeusz Rolke.
Part of the exhibition is composed of a reproduction
of Tadeusz Rolke’s passport, which he received
thanks to liberal immigration policy of the
Federal Republic of Germany during the Cold
War. Passport stamps play a crucial role here,
and one of them especially, namely the stamp
from the Federal Republic of Germany – lending
dramaturgy to this topic. In the maze of stamps,
an original photo of Tadeusz Rolke, with his eyes
closed, is a certain curio... but it bares the value
of an individual in relation with democracy and
stamps.
Another part of the exhibition are photographs
taken in present times at those same spots, that
is ports of entry where the stamps were put in
Tadeusz Rolke’s passport.
The exhibition is of utmost historic importance.
It presents times which have already passed.
Poland is a part of Europe, the wall came down,
stamps are not needed any longer for crossing
borders. The project carries a message about the
legitimacy of transformations which have already
taken place.

In the programme:
• “Rust in Peace” – exhibition by Monstfur
street art group.
“Rust in Peace” is, first of all, a homage paid to
machines. Their mechanics, comparable to the
functioning of a living organism, became the
starting point for the preparation of the concept
of this exhibition. The watershed moment, which
encouraged us finally to take up this issue, was
the downfall of Fablok factory (Polish Locomotive
Factory). The world of iron oxide, rusty plates
and industrial machines slowly gives way to
modern rolling stock. We do not appraise this
fact but only start a dialogue with it.
• Exhibition “What Is Left of Those Years?
Polish Utilitarian Art 1956–1975”.
The exhibition will present show-pieces from

In paintings by Marta Kochanek-Zbroja, colours
and lines play an important role; they are used
by the artist in a way which resembles colouring
books we know from when we were children.
Each colour has a number assigned (legends
describe individual works). Nets of lines and
colour patches, filling white backgrounds, create
the works’ individual ambiance and composition.
In her creative activity, the artist draws
inspiration mostly from everyday situations.
Marta Kochanek makes use of photographs
she takes herself, as well as press photos, old
advertisements and stills from old films. Reality
of the 1950s and 1960s intertwines with
contemporary times.
Marta does not want to exclude difficult issues
from her creative activity; however, it seems to
be more important for her to look for positive

We will begin our travel with an exhibition of
sculptures by Zofia and Jan Kubicki, titled “Shape
and Music”. Zofia Kubicka is an artist interested
in the human being, the gesture and the form of
gesture. She creates images which fill the space.
In Jan Kubicki’s works, one may find motion
as a peculiar converter of a recreated world.
He reaches for worn out materials and objects,
creating imbalanced kinetic sculptures within
which movement, light and space are all equally
important. They have worked in Praga for 20
years. They have presented their creations within
numerous exhibitions in Poland and abroad,
and their works are held in collections in the
United States, England, Spain and Switzerland.
Currently, they are co-creating – together with
other artists – events within a series titled “Actual
Condition – Nighttime Meetings with Creators”.
On this Night, we will also discover the magic
of record players. We will play characteristic

• “Relations” – Anna Carpenter, Dorota
Cieślińska-Brodowska (exhibition).
Relation is an ambiguous word. It means
a seemingly objective narrative about something
that does not concern us; however, it describes
also a reciprocal connection, existence in
a mutual context.
The exhibition titled Relations, by two authors:
Anna Carpented and Dorota Cieślińska-Brodowska, refers to both meanings of the
title. These two creative individualities – despite
their similar age and experience – spin totally
different, deeply subjective stories about the
world that surrounds them. Apart from this
presentation of painting works, The Long Night
of Museums will also feature sneak previews of
auteur multimedia projects titled “Colour Energy”
and “Forgetting”.
• Smart Management Showcase.
Within this year’s Long Night of Museums,
Fabryka Trzciny invites to a concert showcasing
young artists from Smart Management’s roster.
Smart is a relatively new concert agency but
they have already collaborated successfully with
popular Polish artists (e.g. Oliver Heim of Tres
B and Olivia Anna Livki) as well as debuting
musicians (e.g. Hanimal, Maja Olenderek
Ensemble, Endy Yden). The concert will
feature several artists collaborating with Smart
Management, such as: Wrocław-based Endy
Yden and several groups from Warsaw, namely
Maja Olenderek Ensemble, Igor Spolski & The
Dudes and Olivier Heim.

“Cyan – Colonel Vorotincev’s Album”
– exhibition of works by Eric Pawlitzky
(finissage).
The album became an inspiration for works
created with the use of cyanotype techniques,
widely popular among photographers
a hundred years ago.
Eric Pawlitzky about the exhibition:
“St. Petersburg, 2008. It’s raining. There is an
antiquarian bookshop right by our hotel. I ask
the owner about old cameras. She hands me
in a wooden daguerreotype camera from 1895,
complete with a stack of negatives and a photo
album.”
“The album contains photos of a landscape,
which at first glance I was unable to relate with
any definite place or time. On the inside cover,
there was a photograph inserted, depicting
a young man wearing a uniform. Hand-written
caption read »Leningrad, 1931«. On the cover
of the album, there was a title in Russian:
»Great War in Poland 1914–1915, Colonel
Alexandr N. Vorotincev«, and a map.”
“Who was Colonel Vorotincev? Deciphered
captions under photographs, along with the
images themselves, create a jigsaw puzzle
I have managed to recreate bit by bit.”
• For this night, studios of artists connected with
the gallery will also be opened for the public.

“Seen from a Catafalque” – exhibition
of photographs by Maciej Smogorzewski.
Maciej Smogorzewski, who is an architect
by profession, combined in his works his
interests related with architecture and the
art of photography.
“Vaults of monumental sacred buildings are one
of the main elements of their construction, critical
for the overall shape of churches and their visual
appeal. In the Middle Ages, symbolism of vaults
– located above naves, like sky above the earth
– had an important role to play. Raising their
eyes from the floor to the ceiling (from
Earth up to Heavens), worshippers saw caissons
in the vault – symbolizing stars – and a visible
source of light, through which sun rays came
in, symbolizing God’s wisdom or God himself.”
“The whole construction of a church had
a symbolical dimension to it in the Middle Ages
as well. It symbolized The House of God or The
City of God, it was »New Jerusalem«. The word
ecclesia, which in its original meaning referred
to the spiritual aspect of Church, became
later the name of a building perceived as
a representation, earthly realisation of God’s
state. Vaults had the most important symbolical
meaning of all elements of a church. They were
a depiction of Heavens. They were built »ut
simulacro colei imaginem reddat«”.
[W. Tatarkiewicz, “Historia estetyki”, t. 2,
Warsaw 1989, p. 136–137]
On The Long Night of Museums, visitors will be
invited to take part in candle-lit guided tours
of the exhibition. The project will be presented
by the author of the photographs, Maciej
Smorzewski himself.

In the old days, sirens used to lure lonely sailors.
Seductive, sensuous, disturbing. At times
rebellious, vague. Not everybody is able to resist
their allure. Femininity has many faces, and
each of them is real. Somewhere from beneath
a thick layer of make-up and glitter, its true
form emerges. The exhibition of photographs by
Patrycja Toczyńska is dedicated to women. The
artist presents them as beautiful, mysterious and
fascinating.

People would always go to Praga – for food,
illegal documents, clothes from the West, foreign
currency, records. Today, vanishing craftsmanship
may be found here... local flavours, time that
goes slower and fragments of extant Warsaw.
Authenticity, locality, entrepreneurship, creativity,
peculiar fashion, language and style have always
been here. What can residents of Praga be proud
of? What do Varsovians look for in Praga?

“Anniversary” – meeting within a series of events
dedicated to the popularization of reading,
titled “Reading in Public Spaces is the Thinking
Person’s Crumpet”.
Rituals bond people within societies, and they
build group identity. Celebrating anniversaries
– of certain events or biographic facts – solidifies
within a group what be believe is valuable for
its functioning; it allows to convey values we
hold important.
With the use of the written word and
audio-visual aids, we will think about the role
of anniversaries and rituals in social life, and
their meaning in constructing one’s individual
function in the society.

“Spiritual Spaces” – exhibition within the
8th Warsaw Festival of Art Photography
[WFFA 2015].
The Long Night of Museums is a journey through
wasteland places hidden from the world, and
forgotten by the world. Poland is a country
located in the very heart of Europe, between the
Catholic-Evangelical west and the Orthodox east.
The country’s changing borders made people of
various ethnic and religious backgrounds become
its inhabitants. Their descendants still live among
us, let us get to know them!
By means of photography, authors invited to
participate in the exhibition analyze the lasting
of what previous generations established as
a moral canon, and set of rules which bound
them and formed their community. They also
note, however, how adherents of various
religions react to importunate materiality. The
photographs present lives of Catholics, members
of the Orthodox Church, Jews, Old Believers and
Muslims.
Authors of photographs: Mateusz Baj, Mirosława
Gmaj, Alicja Ignaciuk, Monika Krzyszkowska,
Jakub Ochnio, Katarzyna Pawlica, Tadeusz

Building a World without Vandalism – creative
and educational workshops.
We work towards lowering tolerance for
vandalism. Education through fun and personal
experience.
We invite visitors to take a creative attempt at
leaving their mark on a wall, as long as they
agree to make the effort and erase the damage
they do. We provide a practical presentation
of just how fast façades of buildings and public
transport vehicles may be ruined, and how
difficult it is to restore them.
With the use of a construction presenting
typically urban surfaces, and available tools and
equipment, we will present methods of erasing
scribble from spots most prone to devastation.
Moreover, we also wish to make people realize
that it is not only a time-consuming process but
also a very costly one. Participants will learn
how much we all pay for mindless actions of
perpetrators and social passivity in the face
of such actions as urban vandalisms.

“Discovering Wonderland” – Czesław
Czapliński (photographer), Alicja Domańska
(painter).
“I decided to collaborate with painter Alicja
Domańska from the very beginning. I created
a series of her nudes, which I then printed out
on canvas and sent to her studio. She spent
several months thinking, and finally started to
paint on those. Extraordinary effect produced
by interpenetrations of real and abstract images,
black-and-white vs. colourful, delicate vs. fierce...
leaving much to the viewer’s imagination”.
Czesław Czapliński, New York, February 2015
“In my art, I refer to the theory of emotions,
I am fascinated by the brain; emotional
processes are closely related with the functioning
of the nervous system. (…) Ecstatic function
of jazz stems from the religious character of
West African ritual dances, all this is based on
emotions and improvisation, energy is created
– and energy is the essence, the universe.
It is us who decide what kind of energy goes
around, we ourselves programme our ego, and
– paradoxically – the most difficult thing is to
stop, be here and now, experience paintings
or other forms of art”.

“Topos – Sources of Meanings” – Exhibition
of paintings by Marcin Szymielewicz.
Marcin Szymielewicz creates sensational
drawings, brimming with spiritual aura.
Fascinated by the unique structure of paper,
he subjects its tissue to multiple processes,
with masterful virtuosity. By doing so, he creates
projects filled with mystical light and space.
The exhibition titled “Topos – Sources of
Meanings”, presented at Apteka Sztuki Gallery,
refers to the artist’s inspirations drawn from the
(broadly defined) world of architecture. This time,
the creator approaches the subject in a slightly
different way than it has been the case with
his hitherto works.

“Please Do Not Shoot” – exhibition of works
by Bogusław Bachorczyk (2009–2014).
Bogusław Bachorczyk (b. 1969) – painter,
bricoleur, sculptor, photographer, filmmaker
– he created an excellent series of paintings titled
“Heroes”, inspired by war. Each of the paintings
is dedicated to an outstanding individual, forced
to face the hostile world. These dedications
are encrypted in the titles. As the subject of
war and militaria (reworked in a peculiar way)
has fascinated the artist for a long time, the
presentation of his most recent paintings will
be expanded, with some of his carefully selected
earlier paintings and photographs added to the
list of showcased works (many of those have
never been publicly shown before).
The title of the exhibition is a citation from the
period of “strange war” (“drôle de guerre”), at
the beginning of WW II. “Please do not shoot
– We are not shooting” was a slogan French
soldiers were known for, unwilling to take part
in the war. By repeating “Please Do Not Shoot”
in the title of the exhibition, we emphasize
the value of anti-war, pacifist and individualist
beliefs, which oftentimes put an individual in
conflict with socially accepted norms and goals.
“Three Colours” – exhibition of works by
Delfina Krasicka (fabrics), Zbigniew Nowosadzki
(paintings) and Anna Alicja Trochim (paintings).
Along with painting works and sketchbook
drawings, the exhibition will also feature
dramatic, expressive photographs from a series
titled “Nothing New in the West”, documenting
a project created by the artist in his studio,
as well as photographs from a series entitled
“Morning in Entrenchments”, which presents
the way in which the artist plays with a historic
issue.

“Return of Deities” – exhibition of drawings
and silk-screen prints by Jonasz Koperkiewicz.
“Primal hunter-gatherer cultures perceived
animals as deities and forefathers of the human
kind. Their strength, agility and cunning evoked
fear and admiration. In my works, I try to refer
to that prehistoric cult. Portraits of animals,
combined with human hands, create a new value
– they may evoke distant associations with the
culture of ancient Egypt or Babylon, but they are
based in contemporary times. To these primeval
idols, human emotions are attributed. Currently,
the mass culture promotes the cult of the body
and, propelling the circle of consumption,
creates false idols and erects shrines for vanity.
By creating these drawings, I am trying to
emphasize the way in which our civilisation
has turned its back at mysticism and mystery,
divesting life of depth.” Jonasz Koperkiewicz

The exhibition presents a study of the space of
Tomasz Ciecierski’s artistic universe. Painting
studies refer to selected examples of works
created since the 1970s, as well as the painter’s
most recent works, including oil on canvas,
drawings and collages.
In his analysis of the phenomenon of an artist’s
studio’s aura, Andrzej Pieńkos notices that “the
increasing importance of a creator’s biography
seems concurrent with an increasing meaning of
a studio. An artist’s life becomes more and more
important, and the space of living – creating has
also been gaining in significance”.
The newest exhibition of works by Tomasz
Ciecierski at Galeria Le Guern – in line with the
quotation above – combines in an organic way
the topic of a biography and a studio, including
works created within a given time and space
frame.

a clash of various forms of expression and artistic
techniques, as well as ways in which artists,
representatives of different generations, convey
their individual style in their works. However,
will spectators be able to grasp generational
differences marking the works? They may find
“PodświadoMOSTwo” – works by Waldek
Borowski and Krzysztof Linnike.
“PodswiadoMOSTwo” is an epilogue of an
unexpected and fascinating exhibition by
creators-representatives of the young generation,
who in an ambitious and original way unveil
what is hidden deep in us, humans. They portray
what remains unseen by the eye, and they
amaze with compositions and their accuracy.
“PodświadoMOSTwo” is also an improvised
project by harp player Ilina Sawicka, who
will perform on this night in a duet with her
brother, viola player Jurek Sawicki. Their musical
illustration of the presented graphic works will
reveal and research into subconscious internal
conflicts, motivations and – most of all – it will
unveil the meaning of illustrations and graphic
works by Krzysztof Linnike and Waldek Borowski.
“PodświadoMOSTwo” is also a party, presentation
of power encompassed in ambient, dark ambient
and industrial music, delivered by Nahtis.
We provide free, absurd but tasty refreshments.

“Ceci n’est pas cette pipe”
The exhibition presents a critical take on the
limits of quotations in the field of contemporary
art.
“Stealing from an artist is a sign of respect”
Georges Braque
Art is not a free-floating peak; quotation,
borrowing and plagiarism are permanently
rooted in its language and structure. What
some call appropriation may just as well be
considered the basic tool of culture’s activity
– no matter if it happens on the conscious or
subconscious level. The exhibition titled Ceci
n’est pas cette pipe is a juxtaposition, through
which creators directly refer to artistic activities
of others – by making use of fragments of their
works, copying or basing on somebody else’s
ideas. And so, new, auteur works are constructed
here from art history, quotations (oftentimes
too literal... not to voice plagiarism accusations
or indignation-marked awe – sparked by these
appropriations).
Participants: Krzysztof M. Bednarski, Bartosz
Kokosiński, Kamil Kuskowski, Łódź Kaliska,

Paweł Czarnecki ”A Room with a View”.
The project was inspired by billboards, through
the prism of which images of a metropolis are
captured. It concentrates on the appropriation
of shared space, the essence of wild and
primitive capitalism, which places the weal of
corporations over the well-being of societies.
The series is an attempt at presenting this
unpropitious phenomenon from the other side,
where re-scaled designs – seen from the inside
of buildings – fit in with the landscape of a city,
creating a medley which is hard to define. We
can see two interwoven worlds; between layers
of everyday life and striking artificiality
of advertisements, an individual is lost.

to bring back the 1970s and 1980s in an original
way. The space of the cafe will be turned into a

to air on Sundays in times of the Polish People’s
Republic. Everything will be just the way it was
back then, with a host reading out best wishes,
flower bouquets and music. Young people, who
are not familiar with this cult format, will be
given the chance to have an unforgettable
night; those who in those times were young,
will reminisce, listen to the greatest hits of that
era and relive those moments...

The exhibition revolves around all-embracing
consumerism – especially our desire to own
things and spend money – both of which limit
our lives. Themes of the photographs were
drawn from the prose of everyday life. Many
of these images have a humorous feel to them;
they are inspired by the world of advertisements,
especially those which have the power to isolate.

The project concentrates on two moments in
the artist’s creative activity, namely the very
beginning of it, when he is still just creating his
painting language (1948–1949), and the final
stage, when – after a period of faith in them,
and his voluntary submission to the realities of
Stalinist Socialist Realism – he tries to redefine
himself (1956–1957).

Warsaw to it.
From the greyness of everyday life, five mysteries
suddenly emerge, to challenge the eponymous
officer and his intellect, hidden underneath his
pomaded hair...
Author: Paweł Łoś – born 134 years later

be open to public. It will be a unique chance
for visitors to check if there are mysterious
nuclear-bomb shelters located underneath
the Palace, if there exists a tunnel linking the
building with one-time seat of the Central
Committee (Komitet Centralny, KC), if there
is a river flowing underground...

“Lost Museum” (2015) – film screening.
The film is another project dedicated to works
of art lost during WW II. Albeit the chances are
slim that this Polish culture heritage, lost over
the centuries, will be recovered, it is worth to
present these art pieces, so as to bring them
back at least ”mentally”, and secure them a place
in social consciousness.
The film will be presented on two large screens
placed at both sides of the monument to Prince
Józef Poniatowski; it will be accompanied by
large-scale graphic works screened on the
Palace’s walls. The film concentrates on various
locations where Polish works of art were stored,
e.g. Fischhorn castle in Austria. The film will
be modern – illustrated; graphic work will be
authored by, inter alia, Marta Ignerska (illustrator,
awarded the world over). All those who walk
by the Palace will be given the chance to watch
the film.

Icelandic photographs, within the 8th Warsaw
Art Photography Festival 2015 [WFFA 2015]:
• “Re-looking of Icelanandic Landscape”
Artists: Ivar Brynjolfsson, Katrin Elvarsdottir,
Pétur Thomsen, Haraldur Johnsson, Inga Sólveig
Fridjonsdottir, Spessi, Ingvar Högni, Einar Falur,
Bjargey Ólafsdóttir.
Joint exhibition touching on issues related with
Icelandic landscape, at which photographers
of the middle and mature generations took
another look. The Icelandic creators ponder on
a cosmic landscape, with framed, Scandinavian
architectural structures and achievements of
contemporary civilisation. Posing questions
regarding the limits of transformation imposed
by the man on nature, in landscapes oftentimes
devoid of beauty, they unveil views from which
solitude, desertion and detachment emanate.
• Petur Thompsen “Imported Landscape”
The series titled Imported Landscape is
a touching and disturbing testimony of changes
taking place in relation with man’s interventions
in nature, attempts at “taming” it, adapting it to
our own needs, demonstrating domination over
nature or separating ourselves from it.

• Exhibition: “Cannibalism? On Appropriation
in Art”.
The exhibition touches on such issues as
appropriations, borrowing, processing,
remixing and sampling of culture; in English,
all of these actions are most often referred to
as “appropriation art”. This creative strategy
has been used by artists since the avant-garde
times of the beginning of the 20th century.
Works presented at Zachęta are showcased
in a historic context – starting with the most
famous pieces dating back to the late 1970s,
and ending with contemporary creative practices.
The exhibition poses questions related with the
problem of originality, copies and reproduction,
appropriation of works in the light of copyright;
finally, it also touches on the issue of utmost
importance, namely artistic freedom.

named The Long Night of Museums, which
creates extraordinary possibilities for meetings
of inhabitants of particular cities with activities
of various cultural institutions. On this one
night in the year, these institutions offer their
collections to visitors for free, and late into the
night. Throughout this evening, people
– oftentimes overly busy and having no time
to go to a museum – visit venues they are not
familiar with, ones they have forgotten about,
or some which are unavailable for them on other
days of the year. In many cases, whole families
participate in the event. Apart from museums,
also other institutions join in, eager to present
their activity and offer an array of attractions
to their guests. On The Long Night of Museums
in Ursynów, we wish to not only proudly present
our parks, libraries, community centres, galleries
and cultural activities undertaken by parishes
of Ursynów district, but also showcase the
creative oeuvre of our inhabitants.

“Youth of Stalinist Poland: Cursed Soldiers
– Beatniks – Members of Union of Polish Youth”
This year’s edition of The Long Night of
Museums will be dedicated to various aspects
of fighting for freedom in post-war Poland,
in the most dreadful period of Stalin’s regime,
that is 1945–1956.
Organizers wish to present various attitudes
towards the authorities of the Polish People’s
Republic – presented by the youth of those
times, and reflecting the stance of the society
on the whole.
In the 1950s, Poland was slowly rising from
the wartime conflagration; Socialist reality was
starting to shape – reconstruction of the country
and fight for exerting power over people’s minds
and souls were at full stretch. Socialist Realism
was seeping into architecture, painting and art,
and enemies of the system were sentenced to
death, following trumped-up charges. Soldiers
of the Polish Home Army and armed one-time
Warsaw Insurgents fought the Sovietisation of
the country, while in the cities the fight against
Soviet propaganda was conducted with the use
of music – jazz became a weapon in the fight for
minds of the whole generation of the 1950s.
The Warsaw Rising Museum has prepared
a rich programme of events, including, i.a.,
a jazz concert, location-based game for children,
meetings with jazzmen, lectures, culinary classes
and film screenings.

a tour of a one-time remand prison of the

Unveiling of Maurycy Gomulicki’s sculpture
– “Glide” and Jakub Woynarowski’s installation
entitled “Splendor Solis”.
Associations is a series of six concrete
installations, sculptures and small architectural
objects, which in May and June 2015 will be
unveiled on the left bank of the River Vistula
in Warsaw. Thanks to the projects’ experimental
form and their location amidst trees and by the
water, concrete will gain new meanings and,
instead of dominating, it will start a dialogue
with its surroundings.

On The Long Night of Museums, there will be
a mural created, inspired by the life and creative
activity of Krzysztof Komeda. The artist lived
and worked in Żoliborz district. The action will
initiate a series of events related with graffiti at
the Workshop, aiming to liven up the one-time
“artistic” Żoliborz. The organizers wish to show
how many important artists and creators used
to live in this district, and how many live here
nowadays, working actively to make Żoliborz
“artistic” not by name merely.
It is also the organizer’s desire to invite guests
to take part in a discussion on what we need art
in urban space for, as well as touch on an issue
which street artists consider sensitive, namely
“what is the difference between mural and street
art?”. Graphic art will be created by the Artistic
Workshop crew and invited guests – Ad manum
group.
The event will be accompanied by renderings
of Krzysztof Komeda’s compositions. There will
be also a screen printing table prepared for
guests to use. Visitors will also be given the
chance to print a design we will have prepared
– on their own t-shirts and bags (please note
that we do not provide any).
The cost of printing will be symbolical
10 PLN (to cover the cost of paints).

Please note that the Museum of Warsaw
is modernizing its main seat (Old Town

visitors to other branches.
Branches:

in Defence/Metamorphoses”.
7:00 pm – 3:00 am – Museum of Warsaw
Praga: ”All Roads Lead to Praga” / Character.

– the Paradox of The Old Town” / Emotions.
7:00 pm – 10:00 pm – Korczakianum Centre

“Warsaw Anatomy” – nighttime stroll through
branches of the Museum of Warsaw.
7:00 pm – 1:00 am – Museum of Wola District:
“Warsaw – Home” / Bond.
It is a nighttime journey through branches of the
Museum of Warsaw, which will give participants
the chance to investigate into their Warsaw
identity, look for answers to questions regarding
mind, soul and body, emotions and memory of a
“true Varsovian”.
7:00 pm – 1:00 am – Museum of the Military
Ordinariate: “Patriotism of the Capital City”
/ Heart / Mind.
7:00 pm – 1:00 am – Museum of Pharmaceutics:
“Ailments of the Soul, Body and Mind of the
Contemporary Varsovian” / Body.
Thanks to the diversity of the Museum’s
branches, it makes an excellent platform for
investigating the issue of identity. Each individual
institution – different and extraordinary in its
own way – presents various fragments of the
history of Warsaw. Thanks to this fact, for one
night, it may become a peculiar laboratory of
Warsaw, inviting Varsovians to take a closer
look at themselves. The Long Night of Museums
is an excellent occasion to inspect this quest
and present its various aspects in a humorous,
sometimes ironic way. While looking into the
“anatomy” of a Varsovian, one will have to
answer a series of questions: “What do I love?”,
“What am I ashamed of?”, “What my dreams
are?”, “What disease do I suffer from?”, “If I was
not born in Warsaw, can I still find a home here?”
7:00 pm – 1:00 am – Museum of Warsaw
Printing: “Printed Warsaw” / Action.
Author of the script of The Long Night of
Museums at the Museum of Warsaw: Monika
Grochowska.
