Closing Night of the NEW VOICES, ANCIENT ECHOES: POLISH WOMEN IN FILM series will feature a special screening of 2009 documentary “Designing Women” (“Dizajnerki”). Design no longer can understood in terms of mere products. Instead, it’s being redefined in terms of ongoing activity, identity and community.
The film will be followed by a panel discussion with Zuzanna Skalska, moderated by Henryk Stawicki, focusing on the dynamic changes that design has undergone in Poland in recent years. These and other issues will be discussed at this event, generously hosted by The Kościuszko Foundation and co-organized by Polish Filmmakers NYC.
Born in Warsaw, Poland, Zuzanna Skalska has been living in The Netherlands since 1991. In 2004, Zuzanna joined the board of management of Dutch Design Week Eindhoven and in 2011 took up a position on the advisory board of Design Cooperation Brainport. Zuzanna is currently also a part-time lecturer at the Technical University Eindhoven, Department of Industrial Design. Zuzanna Skalska was an initiator of the idea of a new design academy in her native Poland – the School of Form in Poznań.
