Due to a considerable contribution on the part of a co-curator from the Pomeranian Dukes’ Castle Gallery, the Szczecin display of the exhibition entitled Us and Them. An intricate history of otherness – first shown at Krakow’s very own ICC Gallery in the spring of 2011 – has been fleshed out with nine valuable works of art from the local collections (the Pomeranian Library in Szczecin and the Pomeranian State Museum in Greifswald). The new additions include: precious Americana from the series published at the turn of the 16th and the 17th centuries by Theodor de Bry, an illustrated course book for children by Friedrich Justin Bry from the end of the 18th century, a series of expensive editions of Johan Caspar Lavater’s The Faces of Physiognomy as well as two works by the real masters of printing – Albrecht Dürer’s “Witch riding backwards on a goat” and Martin Schongauer’s “The temptation of Saint Anthony”. In the present shape, the exhibition has been further enriched by some new examples of Polish posters from the second half of the 20th century being added to the exhibition’s original contents, including the works by Roman Cieślewicz, Andrzej Piwoński and Franciszek Starowieyski.
