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.
Exhibition will introduce the figure of a little-known artist-wanderer of the Romanticism era and it will also raise the issue of the origins of Sudeten tourism and the timelessness of the longing for harmony of the world sought in contact with nature.
