Nowy Tajny Detektyw premiere

The premiere of Nowy Tajny Detektyw (New Undercover Detective) project took place on the 21st of November 2015 in the National Audiovisual Institute.

This interdisciplinary project was inspired by Jacek Dehnel’s collection of Tajny Detektyw weekly issued between 1931 and 1935 as well as his collection of police photographs dating from 1927-1937. Tajny Detektyw was a popular tabloid depicting stories from the crime world: frauds, crimes of passion, corruption, murder, drug cartels and celebrity scandals.

Nowy Tajny Detektyws project resulted in the publishing of a book by Jacek Dehnel and Barbara Klicka as well as a CD. The music written by Małgorzata Tekla Tekiel is performed by: Mewa Chabiera, Dominika Owczarek, Małgorzata Tekiel Tekla, Grzegorz Kosowski and Marcin Młynarczyk.

Picture Doc is the co-publisher of the book and CD and is also responsible for the visual side of the project.
