From Rebel to Expert. The Media Images of Jan Klata

Keywords: Theatre; Performing Arts; Media

Summary/Abstract: The author analyzes Jan Klata’s strategies of self-representation, tracing his statements in the media. Kwaśniewska wonders what has led to Klata becoming the face of the new political theater, only to evolve into the “specialist on Polishness,” an “expert” of sorts on national issues. Following his statements, she indicates many contradictions and anachronisms. Ultimately she concludes: “Jan Klata’s images turned out to have equal media attraction, though neither was effective as a critical language.”
