PosterCuratorial Dreams for the Ethnographic Museum in Kraków

Tuesday, June 27, 2017, Kraków, Poland 

4:30pm – 7:00pm

My museum, a museum about me!: or, who owns the legacy of the Polish village? Curatorial Dreams for the Seweryn Udziela Ethnographic Museum in Kraków is an intervention that asks, “Is Polish historical awareness dominated by a single story that hides the many voices that combined to make our history? What might happen if we remember the Polish village differently: as diverse in culture and social class? Can we finally get to know a fuller Polish countryside, with its Roma, Jews and Ukrainians, peasants, squires, and parsons? Isn’t it this rich mix of identities that constitute our past, and inform our present? Realized by a group of students from the Faculty of Polish Studies of the Jagiellonian University, under the supervision of Dr. Erica Lehrer(Concordia University, Montreal), Dr. hab. Roma Sendyka (Faculty of Polish Studies, Jagiellonian University), Dr. Marek Tuszewicki (Institute of Jewish Studies, Jagiellonian University), Magdalena Zych (curator, Ethnographic Museum in Kraków).
