Learning from Warsaw

Edited by Nele Dechmann, Nicola Ruffo, Agnieszka Sosnowska

What could you learn from Warsaw? Is it the rise and fall of different ideologies intersecting in one space that fascinate us? Warsaw as a city, whose characteristics are composed of different layers of time and various ideologies, is without a doubt interesting exploration material. Twenty artists and thinkers from Switzerland and Poland, inspired by the famous book about architecture, Learning from Las Vegas, studied Warsaw as part of this publication in a concise form, in order to share their experiences with the city.
