Międzynarodowy Festiwal Gombrowiczowski
Festival was founded in 1993 as the result of Wojciech Kępczyński’s intitiative. His idea was to create a biennial event with an interdisciplinary character, uniting theater, science, criticism, commentary, applied arts, music, and film. The aim was to create an international multicultural forum for the exchange of opinions, experience, interpretations—most notably through the work of Witold Gombrowicz. Gombrowicz’s works are characterized by deep psychological analysis, and a certain sense of paradox. The first three editions took place under the patronage of Rita Gombrowicz, his widow. The idea for the fifth edition, under the title The Transatlantic, was manifest through the image of contemporaneity—as shown through Gombrowicz’s concepts.
