Between Idyll and Ecological Catastrophe
We invite you on November 23 at 18 for an online speech by Magdalena Worłowska, who will talk about one of the eight leading themes of the exhibition “Ukraine. A different angle on neighbourhood"- the landscape.

Magdalena Worłowska will talk about the romantic perception of the landscape of wild Ukrainian steppes, meadows, rivers and mountains based on the paintings of Leon Wyczółkowski, Jan Stanisławski and Anatoly Krywołap and about breaking this vision in contemporary art. The works of Wiktor Marushchenko, Mikołaj Chylak and Lesa Chomenko often depict a world full of inequalities, gripped by an ecological crisis.

The event will be broadcast on the ICC profile on Facebook and Instagram, and later available on YouTube.

Magdalena Worłowska - PhD student in art history. She graduated in applied linguistics (English philology) at the European University, and then art history at the Jagiellonian University, and Romance philology at the Pedagogical University in Krakow.
