“Signs of Freedom” is an exhibition about the endurance of Polish national identity, which commemorates the 100th anniversary of regaining independence. This exhibition is a part of the long-term “Independent” programme.
The artistic structure revolves around masterpieces of Polish art, acquired
from many institutions and private collections. Among them is the painting “Calm” by Prof. Antoni Fałat – our lecturer, who is also the Dean of the European Art Department at Vistula. The work was created in 1983, and it comes from the collection of the National Museum in Kraków.

The presentation has a unique character and format. It is open to interpretations, and to interactions with recipients.
