The paintings of one of the greatest contemporary Polish artists, stories about life and work of Warsaw servants, an attempt to understand the popularity of Maria Skłodowska-Curie in South Korea – these are just some of the proposals for exhibitions in Warsaw’s museums.  

An exhibition of works by Wilhelm Sasnal “Such a Landscape” is held at Polin Museum of the History of Polish Jews until January 10, 2022. The paintings and drawings have been created by the artist in the years 1999-2021 and are devoted to the subject of the Holocaust. So far, the exhibition has been visited by nearly 65,000 people. Accompanying events – guided tours of the exhibition, discussions, walks, online activities – have been prepared for the visitors.  

The museum of Warsaw takes us back in time, telling the story of Warsaw servants. We learn about the forgotten history of women and the role of their house work from the beginning of the 20th century, thanks to over 400 exhibits. The layout of the exhibition reflects the path that one servant has traveled since her arrival in Warsaw, through her job search and daily duties. The program accompanying the exhibition includes museum debates, film screenings, or special museum tours. The exhibition “Invisible. The stories of the Warsaw servants” can be visited on the Old Town Square until March 20, 2022.  

The exhibition of the Praga Museum of Warsaw “Things to play with. Edward Manitius and his factory” takes us into the world of an extraordinary toy factory, school aids and advertising gadgets produced in Praga since 1920s. Innovative and original toys and gadgets produced by Edward Manitius delight with the quality of workmanship and creativity to this day. Lectures, curatorial tours, workshops – these are just some of the events accompanying the exhibition, which will be open until April 10, 2022.  

The Museum of Modern Art at the exhibition “Who Will Write the Story of Tears. The artists on Women’s Rights” presents a female perspective on the struggle for women’s rights and the relationship between the female body and repressive law. The exhibition includes works relating to the experiences of women from Argentina, Spain, Ireland, the USA, Portugal and Poland i.e. countries that have recently become places of mass protests and heated public debates. The exhibition is open until February 13, 2022, and is accompanied by curatorial tours, workshops and film screenings.
