The afternoon meetings Viewer, actor, witness (at 17:00) will focus on the Viewer Paradox from the point of view of people whose job is to participate and observe. Next Saturday we invite you to a meeting with Mariusz Bonaszewski, an actor who cooperated with Krzysztof Warlikowski, Jerzy Grzegorzewski or Jerzy Jarocki – the most prominent Polish theatre artists of late 20th and early 21st century. It was he who played the famous Tinker in Sarah Kane’s “Cleansed” directed by Krzysztof Warlikowski. On Sunday we will talk with Wojciech Jagielski – a war correspondent, an observer of armed conflicts in Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Chechnya, Georgia. In the following days we will look at the Idiom from the point of view of a photojournalist (Wojciech Grzędziński), film director (Jan Komasa), investigative journalist (Marcin Kącki), writer (Piotr Siemion), architect (Maria Godlewska, Jakub Szczęsny). We will also talk about what we don’t see: about abandoned and hidden spaces in the city and about people who although they live in the city, remain unnoticed – immigrants.
On 28 June we invite you for a conversation with Citizens of Culture. The debate directly preceding the Congress of Culture in Warsaw will be attended by figures such as Jacek Jaśkowiak – the President of Poznań, Przemysław Czapliński – literary critic and Katarzyna Czarnota – a city activist.
