Ku nowej filozofii dziedzictwa
[Towards a new philosophy of heritage]
The Royal Castle
Dr. Ewa Święcka, Prof. Jacek Purchla and Prof. Andrzej Rottermund will talk about the articles and essays by Prof. Tomaszewski published by the ICC.
Professor Andrzej Tomaszewski is one of the most recognisable figures of Polish art preservation and conservation of the turn of the 21st century in the world. Being tied all his life to Warsaw, a city which has gone through severe historical ordeals, he not only resisted the typically Central European cultural nationalism, but also became a widely respected builder of bridges, a veritable Pontifex Maximum.
This collection of Professor Andrzej Tomaszewski’s articles and essays starts a publishing series that looks for a new philosophy of heritage, hoping it will trigger further debate and reflection on the fascinating issue of the future of our past.
