We would like to invite you to the second trip to Oskar and Zofia Hansens’ House in Szumin.

The small house, under the care of the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, is a spatial manifesto of the Open Form, which was at the centre of Hansen’s architecture, artistic, and didactic work. The unique atmosphere of the house stems from traces of activities and passion of its inhabitants, such as didactic instruments used for learning the fundamentals of composition; a steel structure from the 1977 Venice Bienniale, covered in grapevine; and a wooden dovecote, which, as Zofia Hansen half-jokingly claimed, was the perfect work of her husband.

The House is the only Polish building on the prestigious Iconic Houses Network.
In order to ensure health and safety of both the Museum staff and visitors, we are introducing new rules:
