Multiplied Homeland

2014-02-27
A meeting with Jerzy Bahr along with the premiere screening of the film Multiplied Homeland

The film, initiated by the ICC, tells of the collection of Jerzy Bahr, the former Polish Ambassador to the Ukraine, Lithuania and Russia. Over many years, the Ambassador collected artworks, prints and sculptures, crafts of folk culture and everyday objects, for example pottery and tools, and also flyers and newspapers. The whole collection has been organised in such a way that it tells it’s own story about the history and heritage of Central Europe, the complex fate of this part of the continent, and also about the collector himself.


Jerzy Bahr – educated as a sociologist, describes in the background of his collections the concept of an "extended fatherland" – a psychological space, in which there is also a place for many cultures and the specifi cities of each individual culture.
