Świat nie przedstawiony. Felietonistyka Kisiela
Languages of publication
The article is devoted to the feuilleton work of Stefan Kisielewski (Kisiel), a long-term associate of “Tygodnik Powszechny”. A review of various feuilleton achievements, the archeology of a “feuilleton by Kisiel”, leads to an attempt to put in order the diagnoses of the liberal conservative, and the exposure of certain traits of his way of thinking (nonconformism, humour, antitheticity, etc.). A particular attention is drawn to one of the feuilletons – Świat nie przedstawiony (The Unpresented World) – written in France, after visiting the Paris exhibition of Polish art Présences polonaises in Centre Pompidou (1983). This text applies directly to the geopolitical situation (East-West), the status of Polish art and a human in the isolated political and cultural space, and finally the situation of the author himself. Hejmej presents arguments for the thesis that Kisiel’s feuilletonism – a specific “journal of soul” – is related not only to public dimension (“Polish Rochefort”) but also, in a particular way, to the privacy zone, with an inner need do be a feuilletonist.
