An exhibition devoted to the interwar period in Poland, with a narrative built around the key social ideas that were born after the country regained its independence in 1918. The modernizing ideas, focusing around the needs of previously underprivileged social groups — women, children, workers and ethnic minorities — will be shown through the perspective of the broadly understood visual culture of this time (from architecture and design to the most modern medium of the time, film). The image of interwar Poland, as seen through the history of these ‘underdogs’ and the process of their emancipation, will illustrate the emergence of valuable ideas born at that time, which appear to be still valid and inspiring today.
