“Three Plagues” – a series of guided tours of the exhibition on Sundays

The exhibition draws its title from “Imperium” – a book by Ryszard Kapuściński published in 1993. In the book the author warns: “Three plagues, three contagions, threaten the world. The first is the plague of nationalism. The second is the plague of racism. The third is the plague of religious fundamentalism. All three share one trait, a common denominator – an aggressive, all-powerful, total irrationality” (read more).
