    What do Iranians know about Poland, Polish history and culture? How are Poles perceived in Iran? These questions may be answered by the competition for a poster about Poland, organised by the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Tehran.

    The competition "Poland in the Eyes of Iran" attracted 400 works of Iranian artists. The jury, which included Polish poster artists – Professor Lech Majewski and Professor Piotr Kunce, selected 150 that were the best. The winners are Ali Haghighi, Alireza Givehchi and Reza Shaabani. The winning posters may be seen at the exhibition in the Iranian Art Museum Garden in Tehran.

     

    “We are curious about how Iranians see us. Currently, Poland is known in Iran for the successes of the Polish volleyball team. The posters entered in the competition show that Iranians still remember Poles’ presence in Iran during World War II, and know our artists and politicians,” said Ambassador Juliusz Gojło when announcing the results of the competition.

     

    The exhibition “Poland in the Eyes of Iran” was organised on the occasion of the 540th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations between Poland and Iran, celebrated in 2014.

     

    The exhibition and competition are part of a larger project of the Embassy which promotes the Polish Poster School in Iran and was initiated in 2013 with a cross-sectional exhibition of the Polish Poster School in Tehran and Isfahan. In 2014, Piotr Kunce, professor of the Krakow Academy of Fine Arts, opened an exhibition of his work in Tehran. Towards the end of 2015, also professor Lech Majewski will present his posters in Tehran. Next year will be devoted to promoting the works of the youngest artists from the Polish Poster School.

     

    The works from the Tehran exhibition are presented on the Twitter account of the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Tehran, marked with the hashtag #Poland_in_theEyes_of_Iran.
