Manipulated Images of Men

The latest exhibition at the Wilanów Poster Museum, As a Husband and Not as a Husband: the Image of Men in 20th Century Polish Posters, shows how the perception of men in mass culture has changed over the past century.

The portrait of the man preserved on these posters can be broken down into a few defined social roles and functions – son, husband, father, occasional lothario and habitual soldier and worker.

Simultaneously, it is easy to see how this homogeneous picture of man, idealized before World War II, has become increasingly heterogeneous and has been wearing out, graying and eventually disappearing since the war.
