In search of a national ‘style’

In this episode of the Debrief, we take a look at a new exhibition on ‘Polish styles’ at the National Museum in Kraków.


What is the Polish style? Perhaps there is more than one? A new exhibition at the National Museum in Kraków aims to answer these questions, opening a series of exhibitions entitled ‘4x Modernity’ which look at Polish art, design and architecture from the 20th and 21st centuries.

Host John Beauchamp speaks to Professor Andrzej Szczerski, director of the National Museum in Kraków, about the exhibition.
