Revisiting Bruno Schulz

This year marks 120 years since the birth of Bruno Schulz, a Polish-Jewish writer, literary critic and painter. The anniversary is being commemorated by the Museum of Literature in Warsaw with an exhibition entitled Bruno Schulz: A Shifted Reality.

The Museum of Literature houses the largest collection of Schulz’s work. Similar exhibitions have previously been staged at major culture centers and museums in Paris, London, Dusseldorf, Jerusalem and Brussels. After successful exhibitions abroad, the organizers aim to remind Polish audiences about Schulz’s achievements.

The exhibition at the Museum of Literature for the first time presents Schulz’s work in the context of the artistic trends of prewar Poland, classifying it as “shifted reality painting,” suspended between surrealism, magical realism and grotesque. The exhibition comprises over 200 items, including paintings, drawings, prints, collages and other works. The museum is also exhibiting video materials, including a premiere documentary entitled Asking for the Resurrection of Bruno Schulz, directed by Joanna Żamojdo.
