Face à la politique ultra-conservatrice du gouvernement polonais en place, Krzysztof Warlikowski cherche à résister contre l’amnésie destinée à déformer l’Histoire, en rapprochant l’odyssée antique d’Ulysse et celle moderne d’Izolda. Cette femme des années quarante a elle-même provoqué sa déportation pour retrouver son mari. Des années plus tard, elle raconte son invraisemblable histoire à la romancière Hanna Krall. Un spectacle sur l’atrocité de la guerre, l’immensité de l’espoir et l’immortalité des récits, porté par une mise en scène cinématographique poignante et engagée.

Ludwik Lewin’s memorial service

Ludwik Lewin’s memorial service

Ludwik Lewin’s funeral will take place on Friday, May 13th, at the Pantin cemetery (Paris), at 2.30 pm.

Those who had closer contact with Ludwik realized for a long time that the chance of recovery was decreasing from week to week, and in April and early May 2022 – it was hard not to notice that his condition was deteriorating day by day and you had to think about the worst. He himself was not one of those who like to deceive themselves.
It is not easy to talk about Ludwik not so much in the past tense, because it is impossible to erase from the memory dozens if not hundreds of conversations, meetings, adventures, but with the awareness that it will be no longer possible to benefit from his knowledge and kindness. As well as from his insight. His intellectual honesty. By talking to him, reading his texts, listening to him on the radio and watching him on a TV or computer screen, one could quickly find out that he went beyond clichés and banalities. And that he does not accept any shortcuts, and at the same time that he can explain the most complicated matters in a clear and simple way. He was able to look at almost everything he did from behind the scenes without bothering his listeners or viewers. And no one could rival his knowledge about world cuisines and drinks, but also about the history and topography of Paris, London and Warsaw.

Fr. Marek Wittbrot, May 13th, 2022, somewhere near Bremen.

It is with great sadness that we share with you the information that has just reached us: after a long illness, Ludwik Lewin passed away today (on May 8th) in Paris. He was a journalist, essayist, poet, and art critic, for many years associated with the Polish artistic community in Paris. As a friend of many artists, he was a privileged witness to the evolution of this community, as well as to the life and work of many of his artist friends. Rest in peace.

The Homoanonymus NFT collection is now on OpenSea!

The Homoanonymus NFT collection is now on OpenSea!

We are proud to announce the creation of the very first collection of NFT artworks. It is a part of the “Homoanonymus” collection – a comprehensively prepared project, born in 1997 and consisting of a rich collection of works and a well-thought-out artistic philosophy. Learn more about the project

The genesis of the “Homoanonymus” project was a series of sketches, representing human silhouettes, started by Artur Majka after his arrival in Paris. Those swift sketches of people spotted on the streets, or in the subway were the starting point to his artistic research – their stylized forms can be found in his paintings, sculptures, or jewelry. To quote Majka: “The Homoanonymus came to be in the Parisian subway. Among the crowds, I searched, and still do, for justification of its final abstract form. (…) There was no time for a deep psychological portrait, just a swift sketch, a “note” of the passer-by, an anonymous human. In the end, a human is always the same, no matter the skin color, hairstyle, facial expression or psyche.” The “Homoanonymus” project consists currently of drawings, paintings, sculptures, jewelry, but also of less conventional forms, following Majka’s research and experiences, such as art books, and also NFTs.

The first series of NFTs from the “Homoanonymus” collection is limited to 500 artworks. They are available on OpenSea. It is the very first collection of NFTs artworks created by one artist on purpose – designed as NFTs from the very beginning – and so comprehensively prepared from the artistic and theoretical viewpoint. Therefore, it is an excellent opportunity for collectors wishing to enrich their collections with artistically interesting works, with equally significant investment potential.
