Who is Bezrobotny Froncek [Jobless Froncek]? Was he once more popular than Mickey Mouse? Where was Koziołek Matołek [Silly Billy] going? Whose dog is Filuś, and what is Miluś the dragon afraid of? Can a turtle be a symbol of a superhero? You will find answers to these and other questions at the exhibition Comics Now!, open from 2 March until 22 July 2018..
This is the first time the National Museum in Krakow has organised an exhibition showing original works, publications and objects from 1871–2017 connected with comics in Poland. All the objects are part of the private collection amassed by Wojciech Jama – one of the exhibition curators. On display are over 600 items including: sketches, pages, blueprints, albums with drawings and autographs, as well as books, catalogues, magazines, occasional prints, unique figurines, toys, coins, stamps and everyday articles.
This undertaking offers a unique opportunity to recollect the childhood heroes of several generations. Visitors can enter Papcio Chmiel’s studio and have a photo taken with their favourite characters as well as ponder over the phenomenon of never being too old to read comic books. The display also aims to show the exhibition potential of comics as a discipline of contemporary arts which perfectly reflects all the transformations that occurred in Polish culture in the 20th century.
