An exhibition of work by German photographer Wolfgang Tillmans at the Zachęta art gallery in Warsaw from Nov. 18 is among more than 20 special events planned as part of the North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) Culture Season, which started in Poland in mid-September.

Other events include an exhibition of “degenerate art” banned in Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich, which will be held in the southern city of Cracow from Oct. 18, and a 24-hour jazz marathon in the southwestern city of Wrocław on Nov. 26.

Known for its industry and top soccer clubs, North Rhine-Westphalia (Nordrhein-Westfalen in German), is the westernmost, most populous and economically most powerful state in Germany, with four of the country’s 10 largest cities. Its capital is Düsseldorf. In 2010, when the Ruhr district was a European Capital of Culture, North Rhine-Westphalia was able to show off its large creative potential.

The Culture Season events this year, held in more than 10 Polish cities, offer an opportunity to appreciate the region as a center of contemporary music, visual arts, dance and other types of art.

Tanzhaus NRW, one of the world’s best dance theaters, will be performing at the Stary Bowar retail and art center in the midwestern city of Poznań for almost a month—from Oct. 1 to 29. A Current of Thought and Book River is the title of a series of meetings with outstanding German, Polish and Dutch authors to be held in cities situated on the Oder river—Wrocław, Frankfurt, Słubice and Szczecin from Oct. 1 to 4. And on Nov. 9, the Chorwerk Ruhr vocal ensemble and artists of the Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music will meet in the southern city of Katowice to perform Vigilia by contemporary German composer Wolfgang Rihm.

The Culture Season also includes many events held as part of Polish festivals. A review of the work of North Rhine-Westphalia theaters Oct. 10-12 will be held in Cracow as part of the Theater Reminiscences series. One of the plays will be an adaptation of Franz Kafka’s novel America by Polish director Jan Klata.

The Culture Season lasts until the end of January. Next year, Polish artists and institutions will have an opportunity to show their work in North Rhine-Westphalia.
