Culture rediscovering, reinventing, and redefining...


It seems that it is the three Rs that best encapsulate the character of Be it our exploration of music, visual arts or literature, it is our intention to delve into those territories which appear to be well-known, but are perceived in a stereotypical or biased way. We deal with phenomena, but most of all with people whose artistic output as well as biographies are rife with lacunae or misinterpretations, very often unknown or undeservedly doomed to oblivion.

Projects on the Sister ArtsWe represent different realms. Anna is a pianist, Marcin an applied linguist and amateur musician, Marek a culture specialist, journalist, and author of English course books. There is, however, one characteristic that we all share. Each of us is involved in the world of teaching, understood in the widest sense of the word. Anna is Assistant Professor at the Kraków Academy of Music. Marcin is Senior Lecturer at the Institute of English Studies of the Jagiellonian University as well as the head of the Modern Languages Institute of the University of Applied Sciences in Oświęcim. Marek teaches English as a Foreign Language, and British and American Studies, as well as British and American History at the Institute of English Studies at the Jagiellonian University. He is also an English teacher at the “Wierchy” private school in Kraków.

Our professional inclinations then do influence the character of our projects. It is our great wish to enlighten those interested in our activity on facts, details or concepts which are unknown, disregarded, or simply forgotten.

Our projects do not concern one ephemeral event. They are dynamic and still open to continuation. As usually happens, one discovery leads to another and creates new possibilities and interpretations. The inspiration to deal with these often comes from the most unexpected sources, such as the people, places or artifacts we come across or find. Last but not least, our pursuit makes it possible for us to reinvent, rediscover, and redefine ourselves, which can also be referred to the bonds that unite us on various levels of human interaction.

Such is the case with our previous projects as well as the one currently under implementation. The question is raised: what do Joseph Jongen, Andy Warhol, Virginia Woolf, and Frederic Chopin have in common? Judging by appearances, nothing - or at least, very little. They are remote from one another in terms of ethnic origins, their realm of artistic activity, and the times and circumstances in which they lived. There is, however, a common denominator that binds them. Both their lives and artistic output are complex enough to allow for constant research. Consequently, what fascinates us is the possibility of looking at the characters under examination from different perspectives. The results may be astonishing, as we realize in pursuing our quest for knowledge and truth.
