This exhibition is intended as a historic account that focuses on three key periods in the country’s history: the late 1940s just before the Stalinist period, the thaw that occurred around 1956, and the late 1970s leading up to the Solidarnosc.
It features photographs by some of the chief representatives of the Polish photographic avant-garde: Zdzisław Beksinski, Zbigniew Dłubak, Jerzy Lewczynski, Marek Piasecki, Andrzej Strumiłło, Zofia Rydet, and Wojciech Zamecznik. Organized by the Institut Polonais, it is hosted by the Baudoin- Lebon Gallery in collaboration with the Asymetria Gallery and the Warsaw Archaeology and Photography Foundation.
