EMG Publishing House presents the book „Zapisane”, in which writers and literary historians interpret interwar reportage. The book is a transcript of the academic session that took place during the Bruno Schulz. Festival 2017 in Wrocław, Poland.
„Zapisane” is a collection of a dozen essays and discussions about pre-war Polish reporters. The heroes of the book are Irena Krzywicka, Wanda Melcer, Ksawery Pruszyński, Samuel L. Schneiderman, Melchior Wańkowicz, and Ferdynand Antoni Ossendowski.
Urszula Glensk and Irek Grin invited not only academics but also writers to talk about the pre-war Polish documentary filmmakers, provoking a fascinating scholarly and literary doublespeak on the history of Polish reportage and its most important representatives. This perspective, unique by the standards of academic conferences, made it possible to take an in-depth look at the phenomenon of the genre which was born in the interwar period. It has allowed for meeting seemingly distant worlds of reflection: scientific and artistic. These voices perfectly complemented each other, and the texts and discussions showed many hitherto unknown contexts of modern Polish reportage, often reading it from a contemporary perspective in a surprising and innovative way. The authors discuss and write about old reportage: Agata Tuszyńska, Agata Zawiszewska, Magdalena Grzebałkowska, Urszula Glensk, Jolanta Sztachelska, Paweł Smoleński, Karolina Szymaniak, Irek Grin, Beata Nowacka, Grzegorz Nowak, Krzysztof Mroziewicz and Zbigniew Kopeć.
