The first lecture and discussion in the series ABC Avantgarde: Icons. First up, the most iconic figure of the Polish avant-garde. In the interwar period people swore by his beard. He himself built his legend, among other things, with stories about a lost suitcase filled with the best works of Polish poetry. The meeting will be moderated by Dr. Michalina Kmiecik – a literary scholar, since 2015 working at the Department of Theory of Literature, Faculty of Polish Studies, Jagiellonian University.
