Pan Tadeusz Museum is the latest and the most modern part of the Ossolineum, exhibiting collections of the Institute on the rich historical and literary background. It was opened to public in May 2016 in one of the most beautiful tenement houses in Wrocław – Under the Golden Sun (Rynek 6).
The "Printers and Romances" exhibition accompanies the Year of Polish Romanticism, i.e. the bicentenary of the publication of Adam Mickiewicz’s volume of poetry with the famous "Ballads and Romances" at Józef Zawadzki’s printing house in Vilnius. Zawadzki’s company released works in the spirit of Enlightenment, with ambitions to explore and describe the world. In 1822, he also published a literary bomb – Mickiewicz's debut. The historical artifacts presented at the exhibition are being confronted with works by contemporary artist Piotr Bosacki. The dilemma between feeling and believing and the eye and the glass featured in the Romanticism ballad proves to be surprisingly current.
"Illustrating Konopnicka" exhibition is part of the 6th Literary Traditions Festival. The author of Oath is one of its patrons, together with Adam Asnyk and Tadeusz Gajcy. The festival’s mission is to remind about works by authors considered classics and – which often goes hand in hand – read mostly by reluctant students and Polish literature scholars.
The exhibition Mission: Poland is the story of Poland's 20th century, based on the lives of Jan Nowak-Jeziorański and Władysław Bartoszewski. Their experiences form a key part of a generation's history, having both been raised in a Poland liberated after 123 years of partitions, and yet which in 1939 was once again forced to battle for its own freedom.
