Mateusz Palka / Poland
Wrocław-based culture scholar and Wikipedian born in 1985. His scholarly interests focus around aesthetics and history of photography. He participated in several individual and group exhibitions. The most recent photographic project he took part in is the “Presence among the absent” exhibition, presenting the region of the Low Beskid (the Lemko Land) as an area which suffered in the two wars and deportation. This is the place where one can particularly experience the manifestation of desolation.
