Zakopane, located in the south of Poland in the mountains, has been a holiday area and intellectuals' favourite place since 19th century. Rich and authentic folklore, local dialect, customs and consciousness also give it a special place in Polish culture. Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz - Witkacy (1885-1939) a writer, painter, photographer and philosopher came there as a child. He created the myth of Zakopane and was subjected to it. In the years 1919-1921 he wrote three texts referring demonism and dandyism to the town and its inhabitants, lecturing on his aesthetics and philosophy. Andrzej Strug (1871-1937), the author of 'Zakopanopticon' (1913) belongs to the same tradition of writing.
