The Poles attract

Fantasy at the essence of Polish art

A timely and worthy endeavour by the Bozar in Brussels, the exhibition ‘The Power of Fantasy: Modern and Contemporary Art From Poland’ delves deeply into artworks emanating from Poland since the beginning of the 19th century. In so doing, the many fantastical cultural characteristics of this historically battered country are revealed. If anything can shake off the blinkered views of the outside world hitherto, it is likely to be this show.
