Event Details

The word ‘stereotype’ once denoted ‘a solid metallic plate for printing, cast from a mould […] of composed type’ (Chambers Dictionary). For almost one hundred years, since the publication of Walter Lippmann’s book Public Opinion, the term has been used for a simplified picture of reality, inflected with value judgment, that functions in the social awareness. In the context of the exhibition Chopin: The Power of a Symbol, the two meanings complement one another. We present here Chopin iconography, historical artefacts, everyday objects, paintings, sculptures and artisanry constituting wide-ranging testimony to the reception of Chopin’s image.
