WITKACY. Sejsmograf epoki przyspieszenia / Seismograph of the Acceleration Age, conceived and edited by Zofia Machnicka and Paweł Polit, translated by Marcin Wawrzyńczak et al., designed by Jakub de Barbaro, 450 pages, illustrated, Muzeum Narodowe w Warszawie / The National Museum in Warsaw, Warszawa / Warsaw 2022, ISBN 978-83-7100-476-6.
In this comprehensive exhibition-accompanying publication, Witkacy’s work is reinterpreted in the context of categories such as cosmologies, movement, body, Unity of Personality, primal vision, history, individuals (vs. the Mystery of Being), DADA, or eventuality. A reassessment of Witkacy’s performative and para-artistic practices forms an important strand of the interpretation. Among the authors of the essays are researchers from Poland and abroad. The publication contains ample illustrative material.
