Polish hospitality is similar to German order or French cheese. It sounds like an axiom positively describing a nation’s achievement, and yet trains are sometimes late in Germany and French cheeses may have an unacceptable smell.

Surely, Polish hospitality can be treated as a neat one-liner, but we can also look at it in depth, using the pretext offered by MWW’s exhibition entitled Polish Hospitality.

We have invited guests from outside the world of visual arts to participate in the second debate in the series initiated by the exhibition. Together we will consider what hospitality is, whether there exists any specifically Polish variety of it, and in what sense hospitality can be Polish.
