Warsaw Rising Museum, External Exhibition Department , Head Specialist
In 2014 Katarzyna Grabowska together with Ewelina Bajak were supervising the project of the exhibition Warsaw Rising 1944 in Berlin which was developed to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw Rising. Integral elements of the project were an exhibition presented in the Topography of Terror Documentation Centre in Berlin, an interactive Internet page accessible from mobile devices and a bilingual catalogue (German-English).
www.warsawrising.eu: the website has been recognized by world’s best creatives and has been nominated for some of the most influential awards in the industry.
WarsawRising.eu in a poignant way transmits the actual exhibition to a virtual reality. International users not only can look through some museum’s resources, such as archive videos and photos but also thanks to an interactive form of presenting the content they can emotionally experience the history of Warsaw which leads up to understanding why every year Warsaw stops dead at 5 pm on 1st August.
Katarzyna has been currently involved in a project of forming a new cultural institution – a branch of the Warsaw Rising Museum – which will be developed in the historical basement of the present Ministry of Justice in Warsaw. More info coming soon ☺
