The Vice-Rector's Welcome Address

At the virtual welcome day, Vice-Rector Izabela Rajzer delivered a speech for the international students of the UBB. Have a look!



Eclipses and shadows

A painter and singer, Magdalena Łazar-Massier presents her works at the University Academic Gallery. The virtual opening of the exhibition entitled "Eclipses and shadows" took place during the University Senate meeting on October 27. The exhibition will be open until 20 November 2020.

Magdalena Łazar-Massie shows us mainly nocturne paintings that illustrate the synthesis of her thoughts and emotions related to the space of the real landscape, remembered and transferred to canvas or paper in the form of a collage. Her way of artistic expression is rich in inexpressible metaphorical symbols that are a record of traces of memory related to her life.

The exhibition is curated by prof. Ernest Zawada.

Visit the exhibition here.
