The current exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw and the complex identity of Henryk Streng/Mark Włodarski will be the starting point for a discussion on the identity of the Deaf. The problem of self-censorship of the Deaf and censorship of their identity by the hearing will be addressed. Questions will be posed: Why do Deaf people struggle with their identity? Who decides on identity? How do we take care of the Deaf’s past and build awareness of their history?" The meeting will conclude with a conversation about future prospects and possible solutions. Self-censorship and censorship of the Deaf will be discussed by Agnieszka Kołodziejczak and Tomasz Świderski. The meeting will be translated into Polish by Joanna Ciesielska and Magda Schromová.
The discussion will take place on the Zoom platform Meeting ID: 848 8598 7935.
