Belebuktunk az életünkbe. Belebuktunk abba, amit csináltunk, csinálunk. Helyesebben: nem csináltunk semmit. Én már nem hiszek abban, hogy mindenki (“minden egyszerű és igaz [lehetőleg hazugság nélküli, a gyűlölettől lehetőleg elforduló] emberi élet”) “termel valami irreverzibilist, belead a…
The Nowa Huta of Kraków, 2014
One of the most interesting places of Kraków, the Nowa Huta district was constructed in the middle of the 20th century as a result of the Communist government’s idea to reduce “class imbalance” in Kraków. The district is also known as the most green part of the city, although the rest of Kraków is still extremely green and full of trees and parks.
The idea was to establish a huge industry center which would offer new workplaces and therefore attract peasants from nearby villages.
The Nowa Huta expression could be translated as “The New Steel Mill”.
The district’s buildings are the greatest representatives of socialist realism in architecture in Poland. Socialist realism as an art genre developed in the Soviet Union and was extremely popular in socialist countries mostly in the 1950s. One would instantly think of socialist realism as ugly, gray, unfriendly style of architecture, but it actually carries several interesting details.
Socrealist architecture was supposed to represent power, show the importance of unity and help the government control and supervise the community in any possible way. Even though the primary goal of this type of architecture was function, one can still perceive artistic features, mainly taken from Renessaince ornaments.
In a way, I find this very beautiful.
