A Warsaw Frenzy. An exhibition of photographs by Irena Jarosińska11.04.2012 - 01.07.2012

Irena Jarosińska was one of post-war Poland’s first women press photographers.  The exhibition presents her work from the 1950s and 1960s. The photographs are, on the one hand, a personal view of post-war Warsaw and, on the other, a unique selection of images capturing the atmosphere of the artistic avant-garde of the time, of which photography was an integral part. To date unpublished, these photographs show the frenetic atmosphere of the intellectual and cultural Warsaw of that period.  

Organisers: Ośrodek KARTA, DSH
