10:00–11:00 Adventures in Paradise

Join the Zakamarki publishing house for a literature-meets-art workshop for children, based on the book series “Adventures in Paradise”, written by Moni Nilsson and illustrated by Elin Lindell.

We will get to know the protagonists of the story, their families and residents of the Paradise housing estate, with troublesome older brothers, a friendly salesman, a lonely homeless man, an elderly immigrant woman and local hooligans.  During the workshop, we will make a model of the housing estate together. “Adventures in Paradise” is a new book series by Moni Nilsson about Tsatsiki, intended for beginning readers. With her inherent warmth and humour, but also seriousness and attentiveness to children's sensitivity, the author describes some usual and unusual events from the lives of two friends.

Workshop for children aged 7–10. Host: Beata Witoń (Zakamarki). At stand 103C, the participants in these meetings will have an opportunity to purchase books from the series at the price of 14 PLN

10:00–12:30 EduAction for libraries. Competencies and motivations of a modern librarian

We would like to invite all the literary enthusiasts, librarians, and teacher-librarians to the third conference organised by Warszawski Program Edukacji Kulturalnej as part of the EduAction. It has already become a tradition that it is held at the Warsaw Book Fair.

Registration: https://eduakcjadlabibliotek.evenea.pl/

Bearing in mind that cultural education is the sum of actions shaping the human capital, preparing us for conscious participation in culture and stimulating our aesthetic sensitivity, we would like to meet on 18 May with the intention of strengthening and improving our competencies.  A modern librarian plays the role of a consultant, teacher and co-creator of classes. In order to be up to his tasks and meet the expectations of both young and adult readers, he has to be a good time manager and, most importantly, be able to make library an interesting and valuable place.

The conference will cover a reflection on personal development, working with pupils on readings, as well as current issues of the professional milieu of teacher-librarians.

We are pleased to announce the participation of Maja Branka – a coach, consultant, tutor, and supervisor – having 16 years of experience, working both with groups (conducting trainings, workshops, sessions) and individuals. For the past four years she has been involved in a strong cooperation with cultural institutions – libraries and cultural centres, as well as with municipal officials responsible for the cultural policies. She specialises in workshops related to interpersonal and social communication.

At the conference, some time will also be devoted to the new application form of the Warsaw Cultural Education Award.

10:15–11:15 Calligraphy – an (un)forgotten art

During the one-hour workshop, we will discover the art of penmanship characteristic of the English handwriting.

The English script, today called “modern cursive”, has been valued for the writing speed and legibility. It was first used in commercial transactions. In its original form, cancellaresca, the English script became a popular writing model in the days of King John III Sobieski, who lived in the Wilanów Palace for over 20 years. In the English script, individual letters are thin and legible, despite their fancy shape.

The simplified version of the English script has been taught in schools until today, but after a few years of education, we develop our own handwriting style, often forgetting about the proper inclination of lettering, which, for the English script, should be at an angle of 55°, and failing to keep the ornamental character of letters, their oval shape, etc.

Literature Nobel laureate Herta Müller talks to Adam Krzeminski

Even before she received the Nobel Prize in 2009, more of Herta Müller’s novels had been translated into Polish than into any other language. At the time, however, the Poles still questioned who she really was, this woman from Berlin, who didn’t speak any language without an accent – was she German or Romanian? “The other country always clings to your shoes,” says Müller, who talks to Adam Krzeminski about origins and language, literature and politics, the past and the present.

A continuation of the survey “Talking about books on the Web. A meeting space of readers” started in 2016, the results of which were presented last year at a conference on the occasion of the World Book and Copyright Day and at the Warsaw Book Fair. It is a joint research project of Lubimy Czytać, a Polish website for book lovers, and the Polish Chamber of Books. This year, having taken into account new, interesting factors, we once again tried to analyse the influence of using increasingly popular websites for book readers on reading habits. The new survey was conducted in April this year.

15:30–16:20 What does Thema serve as? Or who does Thema serve?

Amazon in Europe, the whole British book industry, half of the national German base, the entire export of Spanish publishers to South America – three to four years ago nobody would have thought that publishers in different countries would one day use a single global multilingual book subject classification.

And yet, one simple, common, and at the same time relatively detailed subject category scheme has been approved. Perhaps, it will long be a prevailing view in Poland that every publisher and retailer needs to create his own book subject classification system. Or maybe a breakthrough will happen?

We will discuss this matter with our guests. The meeting will be hosted by Renek Mendruń, who has been attending the meetings of the International Thema Steering Committee for a number of years on behalf of the National Library of Poland.

10:00–11:00 Jan Potocki as a translator of cultures

Jan Potocki was a remarkable traveller, researcher, and man of letters. At the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries, he travelled to almost every European country, visited Egypt and Morocco, as well as the Caucasus. He was fascinated by different traditions, mentalities, social organisations, and interested in people's behaviours, habits, prevailing norms, and languages. During his travels to exotic corners of the world, he observed the reality and meticulously noted his thoughts. Journals and letters of Count Potocki testify to the fact that studying the world through travels is a way to tame and understand it. In turn, written accounts of travels may become a metaphoric “dialogue” between representatives of other cultures and readers.

10:30–11:30 Proper names in the Carpathian Mountains – the multicultural heritage

Geographical names often seem incomprehensible. It is difficult to say what they “mean”, since they are often coined out of archaic linguistic elements that have fallen into disuse. We will discuss the etymological diversity, and sometimes exoticism of Carpathian toponyms in the context of languages, history and culture of the Beskids.      

We will look at how particular ages of settling and development of the Carpathians translate into various layers of naming.      

We will discuss various kinds of peculiar cartographic mistakes that make some of the toponyms seem illogical in the eyes of tourists. We will reflect on the following issues: are the Polish proper names in the Carpathians really Polish? Why is Siwakowska Dolina, a peak in the Beskids, called dolina (meaning valley)? Do you really need to cross the Atlantic to reach Manhattan? Does Pip Ivan, the third highest peak of the Chornohora range, have anything to do with an orthodox priest? How did a narthex end up in Chornohora woods.

10:30–18:00 Agnieszka Martinka

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

It was a need of my heart that led me to the Ural Mountains. This was an unusually beautiful and touching journey. I wanted to find the place of my Father’s exile. In January 1945, on the day of deportation, he was not even eighteen years old, and he was not my father yet. I wanted to find shaft number four, the hard coal mine, the labour camp where my Father had been exiled by the joint forces of NKVD and the Secret Political Office. The aim of my journey was Połowinka in the Central Ural Mountains...

It is my pleasure to invite you to my stand 4/H, where for the four days of the Warsaw Book Fair, I will be promoting my latest book, entitled ‘Połowinka. Rowerem na Ural, do miejsca zesłania Ojca. Wspomnienia Ojca, wspomnienia córki’ (Połowinka. A bicycle journey to the Ural Mountains, to the place of my Father’s exile. Father’s recollections, daughter’s recollections).

Where do Ines, Manolo, and Nanook live? How do their rooms look like, what do they play, what do they wear on special occasions? Come and see!  

At this creative workshop we will build towns and villages from around the globe!

11:00–12:00 The great fear. Poland 1944–1950

The aim of the event is to present the social context of Poland in the first years after the Second World War. Our starting point is 1944 and the complicated political situation of Poles under the Nazi occupation, living on the territories occupied by the Red Army and in exile.

The participants will learn about the political background of this period: the consequences of the Teheran and Yalta Conferences, the situation of the Government of the Republic of Poland in Exile, the course and consequences of Operation “Burza” ("Storm" or "Tempest"), the origin and operation of the anticommunist resistance organisation NIE (the first three letters of the word niepodległość, meaning "independence”; nie also means "no"), the Manifesto of the Polish Committee of National Liberation (PKWN) and creation of the Provisional Government of National Unity, the Trial of the Sixteen, the falsified parliamentary elections of 1947, the 1947 amnesty for the soldiers of the anti-communist underground, etc.

12:00 The return of Strzemiński

The big return of the famous “Theory of Seeing”, a collection of art history lectures given by Strzemiński in the 1950s, published by the Łódź Art Museum.

“Theory of Seeing” is an outcome of Strzemiński’s years-long contemplation and an amazing testimony to the theoretical consciousness of the artist, who has permanently influenced the development of visual arts. The collection shows how to look at changes in artistic perception in a broader time context and illustrates the interdependencies between the evolution of society and changes occurring in art and literature, combining art education and art history.

The publication can be purchased at the stand of Bęc Zmiana (no. 4/D1).

Today, we are increasingly experiencing an information overload, occurring when we have too much information to effectively make a decision or understand an issue.  Everyone who has ever tried to quickly get reliable information on a given issue has experienced it. The enormous amount of historical information to dig through, a rapidly increasing rate of new information being produced, contradictions and inaccuracies, separating the essence of the message from its background... The overload makes it difficult to determine whether the given information is relevant to a decision-making process or not. However, there are some ways of enhancing our critical thinking capacity and handling the big influx of information. They will be discussed during this lecture.

Stage I – We recall Grimm’s Fairy Tales and create our own works. The first person starts telling a story, the next one adds two sentences, and this way everybody can take part in the storytelling. (Creative stimulation of imagination). Stage II – Anagram and palindrome word play based on the titles of Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Stage III – “Shockheaded Peter” (“Struwwelpeter”). Author: Heinrich Hoffmann, and Cornelia Funke with her books. Why do children misbehave? – we will look for an answer in books. Playing with text; a discussion. “Shockheaded Peter” may become the start of an important discussion with young readers about the role of literature, what constitutes the value of a book, the ways to raise children. It opens the way to many important questions, for which there will never be a definite answer. How will contemporary young readers react? Let’s see at the workshop. So what happened to Harriet, who kept playing with matches despite her mom’s warnings; to Augustus who would not have any soup; or to Conrad who sucked his thumbs...

With André Kubiczek, Jakob Hein, Wioletta Grzegorzewska and Justyna Bargielska
Chair: Marcin Wilk 

Summer holidays in the dacha, oranges from Cuba, jeans from the West – when Poles talk to Germans who grew up in the GDR about their respective childhoods, they find much in common. What memories remain, and still have an influence even after the fall of the Berlin Wall? Four authors from Germany and Poland discuss their experiences, as well as their writing about “back then”.

10:00–12:00 Writing is challenging – workshop by Maszyna do Pisania with Sylwia Chutnik

First comes the fear: is my story interesting enough? Would anyone want to read it? When you decide to write it down, there comes the paralysis: what to start with. A blank page in front of you, panic in your head. Take it easy, this is just writing! Not only can we draw strength from it, but we can also enjoy the creative process itself! Together, we will try to awaken a literary spirit inside us and let it get caught up in the whirl of writing.

This two-hour workshop will be devoted to the creation of texts, their form and stages of the writing process.

Limited number of places, please sign up at: maszyna@maszynadopisania.pl, with an annotation: Warszawskie Targi Książki (Warsaw Book Fair).

Participants will be accepted in the order of registration.

11:00–13:00 Body, body – family workshop based on the book “Why is Art Full of Naked People?” by Susie Hodge

Why is art full of naked people? Susie Hodge tries to answer this question in her book for children about art. We will discuss this difficult and interesting topic during the art workshop. Then, we will reflect on what the body means to people. We will also get to know more about the human body and create an amazing model reflecting its mysterious inside. Come and join us!

Family workshop for children (aged 5-10) and their parents.

Participation free of charge. The number of participants is limited. Further information available on PWN Facebook page.

Conducted by:

Kamil Niedziałek – a Polish musician, performer, visual artist, artistic educator, student at the Faculty of Media Art at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts, graduate of Polish Philology and Cultural Studies from the University of Warsaw. He designs and conducts workshops for children and adults, at which artistic issues are most often treated as a pretext for a talk both on easy and difficult subjects. He has conducted para-theatrical and performance workshops in the Polish National Opera, Teatr Dramatyczny, Teatr Powszechny, and Teatr Ochoty. He is permanently associated with the Zachęta National Gallery of Art, as well as with Regeneracja, where he conducted a series of workshops that brought him the Słoneczniki Award in 2014. In 2016, he released his debut album under the pseudonym “Milito”.

12:00 Premiere of the book “Śmieciowy Kapitalizm”

Watch out for the spring highlights of the publishing house Bęc Zmiana! “Śmieciowa przestrzeń” (co-published with Centrum Architektury) is a selection of texts by Rem Koolhaas from the 1970s until now. It contains his watershed essays on architecture, such as Bigness, The Generic City and Junkspace, after which the book is titled, as well as transcripts of lectures and an interview with the author. Koolhaas is not afraid to ask frank questions about the place of architecture in our globalised reality, about the world – subjected to express urbanisation and saturated with images. Another author who does not shy away from controversial theses is Kacper Pobłocki, author of the book “Kapitalizm. Historia krótkiego trwania”, a tale of how work, space and money have become the pillars of the system that is now becoming history. This epoch-making event provides the author with an opportunity to once again pose a series of fundamental questions. Did the West invent or only appropriate modernity, democracy, urbanity? Is capitalism as old as mankind? At what time did people who inhabited the territory of present-day Poland enter the current of global affairs? The premiere of the two books will take place at the Warsaw Book Fair at the stand of Bęc Zmiany (no. 4/D1).

12:00–13:00 Beyond the Baltic. On the culture of Finland.

Finland has a very rich culture and yet is little known in Poland. I would like to show its beauty by referring to the culture of everyday life, to Tove Jansson – best known as the author of the Moomin saga for children – and to Finnish art, which is becoming increasingly popular. The 50-minute meeting is an opportunity to embark on a journey to unknown lands and encourage young people to continue discovering Finland through literature.

12:00–13:00 The authors of the monograph “FARAON”. POETYKA FILMU will be signing the book at the publisher’s stand

Seweryn Kuśmierczyk (the scientific editor), Robert Birkholc, Agnieszka Korycka, Michał Mróz, Jacek Pająk, Paweł Stroiński.

The monograph provides a comprehensive overview of the movie FARAON by Jerzy Kawalerowicz, one of the masterpieces of Polish cinematography. The analytical chapters have been devoted to set design and props (taking into account the period of preparations), direction and acting, the art of camera operation, the aspects of editing and montage, the shaping of the sonoristic layer, analysis of the music in the movie.

The monograph format broadens the timeframe of the analysis. A detailed examination of the elements of poetics of the movie, its structure and composition, also including the execution and technical issues, has been complemented with a discussion devoted to the film adaptation of Bolesław Prus’ novel, analysing the initial novelized prose screenplays, the subsequent versions of the script and the shooting script while at the same time comparing them to the original book. Separate chapters are devoted to the reception of the film in Poland and abroad, the differences between the two director’s cuts as well as issues related to the digital reconstruction of the film. The chapters complement each other owing to the shared methodology – anthropological/morphological analysis. 

The monograph is based on numerous archival materials and almost priceless insider knowledge gathered by the authors during talks held with representatives of various professions who were responsible for the movie.

13:00–14:00 And yet they DO read… A perverse talk on the suspicious reader.

The academic discourse has long ago killed literature and the author. (R. Barthes et all.). The academic discourse buried them and then, not without opposition, allowed for its glorious resurrection. The reader has proven to be least susceptible to all this mourning. While he has been reduced to a mere creation in the text, to a purely intratextual or model recipient, the fact that books were still disappearing from shelves has kept confirming the existence of the real one, against all odds. The reader has been cunningly slipping out of the hands of those who study abstract text constructs because studying him would require leaving the walls of the academy, reaching out to bookstores or libraries, and finally to homes, to learn about him and his intentions. What motivates him to read, what alibi can he offer for the frequent accusation of the crime of reading neglect.
Let us talk about those motivations, the alibi; let us paint a picture of the reader: both the expert reader and the non-professional one; let us reflect on the actual impact of campaigns promoting the reading habit, encouraging reading in general or reading more – do they irritate or encourage/discourage him or her? Let us make observations and self-observations on the reader.

Presentation of the Polish translation of Peter Oliver Loew’s book “Wir Deutschen. Geschichte der Polen in Deutschland” (München: C.H. Beck 2014). The interview with the author will be conducted by the Director of the German Historical Institute (NIH), Professor Miloš Řezník.

The author presents the history of Poles in Germany, discussing Polish immigration and the historical Polish minorities in Germany, from the Middle Ages to the present. Today the Polish community – the second largest minority group in Germany – is highly diverse. It includes displaced people who no longer acknowledge any Polish identity but speak Polish at home, often the Silesian dialect. There are those who want to integrate with the German society as quickly as possible and those who try to remain Polish. There are people who emigrated for economic or political reasons – some of them have Polish citizenship and some have German citizenship. Furthermore, every year Germany hosts hundreds of thousands of Polish seasonal workers. At the same time, Germany is inhabited by the descendants of those who ended up there because of World War II and even of economic migrants from the pre-war period.

Participants of the meeting: Jacek Raczek, a missionary. Dariusz Gaczyński, César Rosales-Miranda.

A quarter of a century has passed since the death of the first Polish martyr missionaries: the Blessed Michał Tomaszek and the Blessed Zbigniew Strzałkowski. During that time, many biographies have been written about them. But so far they were usually authored either by other members of the Franciscan order or by completely unrelated people. This book is the first biography written by someone closely related to one of them, namely with the Blessed Michał Tomaszek – his nephew, Jacek Raczek… The undeniable value of the publication is proven by the fact that it was not written ‘on bended knees’, and although the author is related to the protagonist by blood, he does not whitewash anything in his past. He does not cover anything up, does not omit unfavourable facts, does not justify his uncle’s choices and he does not pretend there’s heroism where there is none. He simply attempts to provide an objective account of the Blessed Michal Tomaszek’s life.

A panel discussion with Juri Andruchowytsch, Ulrike Guérot and Magdalena Grochowska
Chair: Jacek Żakowski

The EU is in a deep crisis, yet it remains a place of aspiration for many people. It is a pressing contemporary task to resolve this paradox and rethink Europe as a place fit for the future. A tough call, but essential if we are to avoid nationalism and war. Three authors from three countries discuss their views of the current state, as well as the future of this shared continent.

15:00–16:00 Hege Storhaug

Premiere of the Polish edition of the book “Islam – den ellevte landeplage” (Islam, the 11th plague) by Hege Storhaug, a Norwegian feminist and human rights activist. The lecture and debate will be moderated by Piotr Ibrahim Kalwas, a Muslim. The book was published in Norway in 2015 and immediately became a bestseller. By now, 5 editions of this book have been published, with 100,000 copies in total. This book is a controversial, difficult and shocking testimony to the threats to Europe posed by radical Islam. The text is full of challenges, especially for those who profess the idea of multicultural coexistence, dialogue and tolerance. It faces the readers with facts, statistical data and quotes that might be difficult to accept and which have been collected over the years of work for the Human Rights Service – an organisation dedicated to helping children and women from Muslim families, among others. Hege Storhaug is an activist known especially in leftist circles, but still she has written a book that obviously rejects leftist ideals. She is very popular in Scandinavian countries, and after the publication of this book the interest in her increased even further, especially because of the massive wave of criticism she was faced with.

From the moment when Gabriel L.

His latest work on Wrocław and his life in the city is a volume of poetic prose titled “Jestem, ocalałem” (I am, I have survived), where he attempts to finally appraise his life in Wrocław as well as the entire generation ‘57’.

Arcadia or inferno; Utopia or dystopia; houses from which we flee, and to which we return: just some of the “places” that have found resonance in literature. In this Long Night of Literature, German and Polish writers will tell us of their own places – about the living spaces and houses they’ve had to flee, and to which they returned in order to write.

10:30–11:30 Mamma Moo and Crow in comic books

Zakamarki invites all children to a workshop revolving around the premiere of the latest publication about Mamma Moo and the Crow. This time it will be a comic book, titled “Mamma Mu och Kråkan på utflykt” (Mamma Moo and the Crow on excursion), in which the protagonists will go on a bicycle trip.    Delectable dialogues, sudden plot twists, a remarkable sense of humour and excellent characters – Mamma Moo, for whom nothing is impossible, and Pan Wrona, who is always a bit on the grumpy side – are the trademark of the stories created by Jujja Wieslander.

A literature and art workshop.

The aim of this workshop for children and parents is to stimulate children’s spatial imagination by playing with form, colour and texture. Drawing words, a wealth of working materials, the idea of recycling and creation of three-dimensional machines and inventions according to the most crazy ideas and much more.

During the workshop, the participants will also learn about the inventors who inspire us through their achievements and perseverance to follow our dreams. The authors of the works will invent names for the machines of their own design and will talk about the projects once they complete them.

12:00 A bargain: “Architektura VII dnia”

NOTE: The last copies of the first guidebook to the architecture of post-war Polish churches are reserved for the Warsaw Book Fair.

“Architektura VII dnia” (published by Bęc Zmiana/ Biuro Festiwalowe IMPART) presents more than 3000 Roman Catholic churches built in the Polish People’s Republic   – a period when erecting temples was a sign of both faith and protest against the atheist state. Constructed by public effort, with building materials very hard to acquire, the churches’ extraordinary shapes formed a breach in the rigid architectural landscape of the centralised country. Belonging to the grey area and therefore not entirely formalised, the construction of these temples attracted many talented architects by offering them creative freedom. Today, they constitute the most unique heritage of Polish 20th- century architecture.

This is the last chance to purchase the guidebooks – available at the stand of Bęc Zmiana (no. 4/D1).

The aim of this workshop for children and parents is to stimulate children’s spatial imagination by playing with form, colour and texture.

13:00–14:00 André Stern

André Stern – “Zabawa. O uczeniu się, emocjach i życiu pełnym entuzjazmu”
André Stern is a guitarist, guitar maker, writer, lecturer, he speaks five languages and never went to school.  

We invite everyone to a meeting where he will talk about the role of fun in learning, about the development of the emotional sphere and about searching for children’s natural potential. It will also be the first opportunity to discover the Polish translation of his latest book: “Zabawa. O uczeniu się, zaufaniu i życiu pełnym entuzjazmu”.

What is the first thing children do when they are left in peace? They have fun. We know this, we don’t even have to think about the answer.

And if we were to let the child do it, it would... keep having fun forever!

So why do we keep bothering children when they are having fun?
– André Stern

Playing is the most successful tool for learning nature has given us. André Stern will talk about the incredible power of unhindered fun, curiosity and developing one’s passions. His message is based on the experience of his father Arno, who has been constantly working with children for more than sixty years now, as well as André Stern’s personal experience of his childhood without school, which allowed him to learn skills from reading, writing and counting, through fluency in five languages, programming skills and astronomy, to professional instrument play, composing music, and even guitar making.

At the meeting, Stern will share his observations on playing as the best way to learn about oneself and the surrounding world – and he’ll show that it allows children to learn very effectively.

André Stern (born in Paris in 1971) never went to school; he is one of the characters of Erwin Wagenhofer’s film documentary “Alphabet” of 2013. The son of Arno Stern, a pedagogue and researcher whose work focuses on the spontaneous disposition of the human being.

He is also the author of two bestselling books, in which he describes the experience of a life without school, published in Poland as “…I nigdy nie chodziłem do szkoły” (Wydawnictwo Element, 2016) and “Mój ojciec, mój przyjaciel” (Wydawnictwo Element, 2016).
