The exhibition was accompanied by the presentation of documentary materials on art events in the historical context of 1980s and 1990s in Gdaƒsk and its influence on the shape of the present stances and tendencies. It also offered a possibility to visit artists' home-pages on the Internet. Both parts of the exhibitions, along with some phenomena in the public space which were included in the ideological space of the exhibition for its duration, were meant to gather and make a synthesis of various artistic stances without any attempt at creating their hierarchies or evaluating them.
