Photographs see cities in the colours of words

Photographs see cities in the colours of words – Iosif Brodsky’s Venice 20.11 – 20.12.2013.

Iosif Brodsky’s Watermark contains something that forces its readers to act. To abandon the place they chose for themselves. It pushes them to take a journey – perhaps the longest in their lives. All of this to make them see, to focus their attention on one detail which constantly gets blurred for the sake of things. This fluid dependency enforces change. And in almost all cases, it is a change for the better.

We would like to invite you to visit an exhibition entitled Fotografie widzą miasta w barwach słów – Wenecja Josifa Brodskiego [Photographs see cities in the colours of words – Iosif Brodsky’s Venice]. The photographs by Monika Gromala were taken during her stay in Venice in February 2013. The visitors will have a chance to see unknown corners of Titian and Tintoretto’s city, as well as to confront them with the image presented in the Watermark prose collection. Each photograph was labelled with a proper quotation from the essay.

Entrance is free of charge.

Location: Regional Public Library in Krakow (2nd floor)

Date: the 20th of November – the 20th of December 2013
