In the last six years, Poland has reemerged, managing to position itself politically and socially after regaining its freedom in 1989 from communist oppression. In a very noticeable way, the country has shown itself to stand out through its architecture, which is at its peak right now. Poland has built several public buildings, such as museums, musical performance venues, sports facilities, school buildings, libraries, and public squares.

Financed with state and regional aid from European Union funds and designed by excellent architects, these buildings have become symbols of contemporaneity, not only at regional or national level, but also in the international context.

The Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Mexico and the Casa de Europa have brought a small exhibition to San Miguel with the best and most beautiful buildings built in the public spaces of Poland. The exhibition consists of 24 newly built or revitalized installations, all designed by architects who have won competitions with their buildings. Some of the buildings that have garnered various awards are The Philharmonic of Szczecin, The Dialogue Center, and The Museum of the History of Polish Jews. They will be present in this exhibit until November 15, from 7pm to 10:30pm, at Casa de Europa in Mexico (CEM) on calle San Francisco 23.

The exhibition was presented by Zofia Ziolkowska, Cultural Affairs Attaché of the Embassy of the Republic of Poland, on behalf of Beata Wojna, Polish Ambassador to Mexico and Manuel Oberlader, in charge of the cultural and artistic programming of the CEM and representing Maria Abel, the new president of the CEM. The Casa de Europa in Mexico is an institution whose objective is to promote national and international cultural and artistic exchange in order to develop and give a rich display of content, technique, and aesthetics. “Culture connects, moves, and regenerates” is a principle that moves the CEM. The CEM is based on three main axes, fine arts (music, painting, dance, cinema, literature, and architecture), educational/scientific studies (workshops, language courses, and talks), and economic studies (links between art and economics).
