Wrocław Contemporary Museum and ATUT Publishing House kindly invite you to the meeting with Maria Berny.

A long-term work in education and with cultural institutions is the main theme of the book ‘A Tower of Joy’. Despite having performed many duties and worked in various positions, the author always emphasizes that she is a Pedagogue by profession. For Maria Berny, 1970s and 80s mark a significant time, a certain tower of joy. It was then, when she held the position of Director of the Office of Art Exhibitions (Biuro Wystaw Artystycznych), would organize exhibitions, meet artists and actively participate in the cultural life of Wrocław. During the meeting, the author will be talking about the work on her book and the events of those years.

‘Everything I described had really taken place. Perhaps others saw those facts differently, yet everyone has their right to describe their life on their own terms, look at it with their own eyes’.
