“Archive Discoveries” - ZD/02/2009

The project for the decor of the textile store in Warsaw’s “Koszyki” market hall was hitherto known thanks only to a handful of photographs. The archive has revealed more extensive documentation as well as negatives from subsequent stages of work. The store décor was prepared in 1962 and mentioned subsequently by Urszula Czartoryska, e.g. in her text Photography in the Service of Mercury. On the use of Photography in Commercial Décor [Fotografia w sluzbie Merkurego. O zastosowaniu fotografii w wystawiennictwie handlowym], featured in the magazine "Fotografia (issue 1962 nr 9). Dlubak also prepared plates which were meant to decorate a textile store for women, it is unknown however if the project was carried out.
