Reformation in East and Central Europe exhibition at the ICC

2018-03-15
The history of reformation has no wider resonance and remains on the margins of our cultural memory. How to communicate our present knowledge on Protestantism to the contemporary viewer, who rejects obtrusive propaganda and demands freedom for his own reflections?

“Reformation in East and Central Europe”, on show in the ICC, is a display of twelve large-scale boards which tell the five-century-long history of reformation in the regions peripheral to the reformation’s centres: Wittenberg and Geneva.

The exhibition was developed to celebrate the 500th anniversary of reformation. It covers the territory from the Baltic countries in the north, through the Teutonic Knights’ lands, Silesia, Poland, Czech and Moravian land, Slovakia (Upper Hungary) – down to Transylvania.

As an intellectual trend, reformation was and still remains a verbal-textual phenomenon. The exhibition expands this picture by inclusion of additional elements: portrait illustrations, figurative scenes, monuments, churches, cityscapes and detailed geographical maps that situate given topic in particular space, combined together into twelve thematically coherent, synthetically presented, comprehensive memory maps.

Developed by the Deutsches Kulturforum östliches Europa in Potsdam, the exhibition was conceived as a “travelling show” – it was already hosted in Warsaw, Bielsko-Biała, and Český Těšín. Thanks to Professor Ewa Chojecka it can now be visited at the International Cultural Centre in Krakow.

Join us on 6 March (Tuesday) at 6.00 pm to visit the exhibition on a tour guided by Professor Ewa Chojecka and Rev. Roman Pracki, PhD, the parish priest of the Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession in Krakow.
