The Show present works by 16 artists from Poland and abroad. The oldest one comes from 1959, the latest from 2017. Works represent different problems, media solutions and symbolic combinations. Mirosław Bałka collides with motionlessness. Of the eight salt circles – the value symbols – it runs only one.
