Zuzanna Ginczanka. Tylko szczęście jest prawdziwym życiem
The exhibition Zuzanna Ginczanka. Only happiness is real life, presented the figure and work of Polish poetess of Jewish origin, Zusanna Ginczanka. The exhibition was first shown at the Museum of Literature in Warsaw (October 29, 2016 – February 29, 2016) and then in the Museum of the History of Photography in Krakow (June 8, 2016 – August 14, 2016).
History of Ginczanka is a clash of the legend of her incredible, magnetic beauty and exceptional talent with the tragedy of the Holocaust. Her poetry is a testament of an era, closely linked with the fate of the poetess. The exhibition presents both the life and work of this iconic Polish poet and is an attempt to reanalyze her poems. The exhibition is arranged in a reverse chronological order, and the line “Non omnis moriar,” which sums up the tragic cruelty of the Holocaust is the starting point of the narrative. Thoughts and poems of Ginczanka are juxtaposed with contemporary art inspired by her works, which creates an interesting dialogue between eras. The exhibition presents the manner in which the legacy of this outstanding poet is seen and understood nowadays.
