Renoma: Reflections of Wroclaw
 
Start Date 16/10/2009
End Date 29/01/2010
Location London
Country United Kingdom
Description This exhibition maps the turbulent history and changing face of Wroclaw by telling the story of RENOMA. Designed in 1930 by modernist architect Hermann Dernburg for the Wertheim family as one of the largest, truly international retail stores, its original concept was shortlived.

After years of neglect, it reopened in April 2009 with a carefully restored fa├žade and a new wing designed by Mackow Architects in collaboration with Arup. The exhibition also features collage artist Jan Dziaczkowski and photographer Marcin Czechowicz.
