Taborska on “Women in Animation”

Agnieszka Taborska (Senior Lecturer,  HAVC) gave a paper at the international conference “Women in Animation: Key Issues and History” on Franciszka Themerson (1907-1988), painter, graphic designer, filmmaker, and art director of the London based Gaberbocchus Press.

The paper focused on the visual parallels between Themerson’s paintings and the avant-garde films she made with her husband, writer and philosopher Stefan Themerson, in the 1930s and 1940s. The conference was part of the 7th International Animated Film Festival Animator in Poznan, Poland.
