This publication offers an international readership an in-depth look at Andrzej Wróblewski‘s (1927–1957) oeuvre, for the first time in English, allowing a new public to discover his works and writings as well as their impact on the art history of Cold War Europe.
The volume includes two critical texts addressing Wróblewski‘s artistic practice: a historical analysis of early works written in 1968 by Andrzej Kostołowski, and a study of late works by Joanna Kordjak-Piotrowska. These are accompanied by a historical statement by the artist and photographer Zbigniew Dłubak.
The essential part of the book offers a comprehensive selection of the artist’s writings, most of which were published in Polish as press articles, ranging from critiques aimed at the system of fine art academies to comments and remarks on exhibitions, as well as private notes, fragments from his diary, short texts, film scripts and letters.
