POLSKIE PLAKATY, KTÓRE WARTO ZNAĆ
POLISH POSTERS YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS
The aim of this project has been an attempt to identify the approximately one hundred most interesting Polish posters designed in the years 1945-2000. We decided, however, that such a number – perversely 123 rather than a regular one hundred, i.e. an enlarged set – would enable us to form valid assessments of what Polish posters have really constituted during this period. To what extent and for what reasons was the paradigm of the genre respected by poster designers, and at which points was this deliberately violated or downplayed. Obviously this selection may to some seem controversial, incomplete or biased. Such a formatting of the sequence of posters is in this case synonymous with a recommendation that these examples are worth contemplating and remembering. The collection presented does not of course cover the whole phenomenon.
