Slanted goes Warsaw / First day

Author:

Hier sind wir: Hallo Warschau. Es fühlt sich so viel besser an jetzt hier zu sein als im kalten Januar, als alles grau war. Jetzt ist der Sommer da! Julia Kahl, “Mrs. Slanted”, und Markus Lange, “Mr. Poster Rex”, sowie Studenten der FH Dortmund mit ihrem Fotografie-Professor Dirk Gebhradt werden in Kürze ebenfalls Teil des Waschau-Trips sein.

Folgt unserer Reise auf dem Slanted Blog oder Facebook und freut euch auf das neue Slanted Magazin über die Designszene Warschaus, welches ihrab sofort zum vergünstigten Preis vorbestellen könnt. Die Video-Interviews unserer Reise findet ihr zum Release der Ausgabe im November unter videos.slanted.de.

The first visit brought me to SuperSuper where I met Hanna Kokczyńska and Rafal Grobel, they run the studio with founder Jacek Majewski (who was in Berlin). They are located in the former industrial area Praga. Great place, great work!

Neon Muzeum is just next Super Super. It was nice to meet David Hill and Ilona Karwinska, the directors. Same as the Buchstabenmuseum in Berlin, the Neon Muzeum is a private initiative and does not currently receive public funds. It is a great place to visit!

In the afternoon I met Mieczyslaw Wasilewski (born 1942) who studied at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts in the faculty of painting and graphics back in 1960–62, and obtained his diploma in the atelier of professor Henryk Tomaszewski’s. He took part in hundreds of national and international exhibitions concerning Polish poster and illustration. It was an honor to see him in his atelier, the same one since 35 years. (Thanks to Agatha C. for translations!)

Later I met Jakub de Barbaro in his studio. A year and a half ago he moved from Krakow to Warsaw. He seems to be very happy about it.
