Corrective photographs

by Karolina Breguła

Zofia Chomętowska was a photographer who worked in Warsaw from the early thirties. She photographed the city with its prewar architecture, the war time, war destructions and the rebuilding of the city after the War- saw Uprising. 7 chosen pictures out of Zofia Chomętowska archive were installed in the city space in form of huge city wallpapers. In the new context the old pictures changed their meaning and instead of documenting commented on the contemporary city by showing what it lacks.
curator of the project: Karolina Lewandowska
