The 'Kwestionariusz Kultury Wizualnej' (Visual Culture Questionnaire) is a nation-wide scientific project carried out by the Institute of Sociology of the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan. Over forty Polish researchers and artists, representing the fields of sociology, anthropology, cultural studies, film studies, philosophy, photography, media studies and art history, were asked to answer two questions: what is visual culture?; whether it is worthy of study and how and why? This article contains the project's assumptions and answers to the above questions.
