The wealth of Polish culture goes far beyond the most famous names of musicians (Frederic Chopin, Krzysztof Penderecki), Nobel prize winning writers (Wisława Szymborska, Czesław Miłosz) or renowned film directors (Andrzej Wajda, Krzysztof Kieślowski). These artists have shaped our sensitivity and perception of reality. This heritage displays itself in an extremely interesting way within younger generations of artists. They are a reflection of the society’s creative potential and they are the ones who bear witness to intellectual unrest .
Their works receive high prices at international auctions (Wilhelm Sasnal, Mirosław Bałka) and are displayed in best galleries, their records establish new trends in jazz and electronic music (Mateusz Kołakowski, Jacek Sienkiewicz, Włodek Pawlik), and their theatre spectacles win first prizes at festivals (Krzysztof Warlikowski, Mariusz Treliński).
Thus, Poland can be a source of inspiration for both a high culture aficionado who listens to Chopin concerts or takes delight in experimental performances in the style of Tadeusz Kantor, and a popular culture fan who visits clubs in the search of excellent DJs.
