Art and Heritage in Central Europe
The exhibition “Polish National Styles 1890–1918” opens the series called “4 x Modernity” comprising four parts concerning original modernization patterns in Polish art, design and architecture of the 20th and 21st century.
It is available in the Main Building of the National Museum in Cracow from 02.07.2021 to 02.01.2022
Its theme is related to the debate over the national style which has been on-going in Europe (particularly Central-Eastern Europe) since 1900, an idea understood as a stylistically distinguishable form expressing the uniqueness of a culture of a given nation. The origins of such a form can be traced to regional varieties of historical styles, as well as folklore, as an attempt to distinguish it from late historicism or Art Nouveau.
