National Museum in Szczecin: Director's Choice (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


One of the most renowned and distinctive museum buildings in Poland, the National Museum in Szczecin is the largest cultural institution in Western Pomerania. It holds over 150,000 objects divided among its five branches, which include museums dedicated to contemporary art, Szczecin's history and regional traditions. The National Museum itself holds Poland's largest collection of artefacts from outside Europe, shedding light on the cultures of Africa, the Americas and Oceania. However, its main focus is on the history of the Pomeranian and Baltic regions and how this has in turn shaped their national identity. Published to mark the reopening of the permanent collection in 2020, in this book Director Lech Karwowski introduces readers to the art and artefacts, both ancient and modern, that constitute his highlights from the collection. AUTHOR: Lech Karwowski is an art historian and critic, and has been Director of The National Museum in Szczecin since 2001. He has curated numerous Polish and international contemporary art exhibitions and written their accompanying catalogues. He has organised many cultural events in Poland and his awards include the Silver Medal of Gloria Arts, the highest accolade for contribution to the arts in Poland. SELLING POINTS: Director Lech Karwowski introduces readers to the ancient and modern art and artefacts that constitute highlights from the National Museum in Szczecin, the largest cultural institution in Western Pomerania Published to mark the reopening of the permanent collection in 2020 Part of a burgeoning list of Director's Choice titles from cultural institutions around Poland, including the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Museum of Photography in Krakow; and the Fryderyk Chopin Museum, The National Museum and The Royal Castle in Warsaw
