We are pleased to invite you to the second edition of a cultural and military event, organized by the Provincial Public Library in Cracow. The program includes numerous attractions.
On 18 May, the "Militaria w POPkultrze 1919-2019-2119" festival will take place at the Krakow Arteteca at the Provincial Public Library.
As the organizers write themselves, a library is not just books. It is also a space for discussion on socially important topics, although sometimes very difficult. Warfare has been around humanity for thousands of years and affects our lives whether we like it or not. We find its expression in literature and art, in past and modern media, and that's what we want to talk about at our festival.
During this year's edition, the leitmotif will be changes in the perception of the image of a soldier, war and military over decades, but also considerations about their characters in the future - hence the subtitle: 1919-2019-2119. We will reflect on how this topic was presented in the media such as literature, film, comics, board games and computer games. We will also reach for works of science fiction, military fiction or mockumentary.
