A look at the last years of Władysław Strzemiński, Poland’s best- known interwar artist and a theoretician. Strzeminski is a controversial and visionary working in his apartment, only to be interrupted by the unfurling of the Soviet flag outside his window. As Stalinism spread to Poland, the unbending Strzemiński refused to compromise his art for the sake of the preferred socialist realism style. He eventually became persecuted and expelled from his Chair at the Łodz Academy of Fine Arts, but the ever-compelling and charismatic teacher was surrounded by loyal students who emboldened him to fight against the Party while they themselves risked jail for publishing his book. Strzemiński, who created the concept of Unism, was a co-founder of the constructivist group Blok and the founder of the Museum of Modern Art in Łodz.
