The upcoming conversation in the frame of At the Distance will focus on the latest issue of HERITO 42/43: Invisible Places. The guests of the meeting will be Jarek Szubrycht and Aleksandra Wojtaszek.

Invisibility is a living experience of the inhabitants of Central Europe, where many cities and places are palimpsests, and the borders shifted so often that they rubbed places like an eraser, creating space for new ones. Does invisibility really mean more to Europeans than it does to other parts of the world, and does it contain both ruins and utopias, barely sketched dreams and those that have fallen into ruin? Is Central Europe a huge cemetery with traces of damage done by man, history and nature? Does something irrevocably go down in history in Europe? On the sidelines of the latest, double issue of Herito, which is a non-obvious atlas of invisible places in Europe, editor Bartosz Sadulski will talk to the authors of two texts: Jarek Szubrycht, who introduced the readers to the history of Dukla, and Aleksandra Wojtaszek, author of a personal essay on Croatian Benkovec.

The meeting will be held on September 30 at 19 on the MCC profile on Facebook and will be made available on YouTube.
