Komorowski Piotr

In 1981 he graduated from the Academy of Economics, and he obtained his doctorate and habilitation at the L. Schiller National Higher School of Film, Television and Theatre in Łódź.

The area of my interests is well defined by the notion of "theatrum mundi", which I understand in such a way that everything that exists and is often trivial, as well as that which is created and artificial, is a specific staging, in which truth is mixed with fiction in proportions not established a priori. Infinite meanings of this "theatrum" permeate and condition one another on many levels, catalysing the explorations of successive interpretations of reality.
