Exhibition - You've Got 1234 Unread Messages. Last Generation Before the Internet. Their Lives.

The exhibition deals with the recent past when the quest for one's identity and communication with others took place in the analogue, instead of digital, environment. The exhibition is designed to uncover the cultural layer of the era that ended not so long ago. The combination of artworks and various everyday 'micro-historical' objects will serve as an introduction to some 20th century individuals and wider currents, which challenged the commonly accepted boundaries between art and everyday life.

The multitude of exhibits may have the effect of a long unopened mailbox where the heap of messages holds the possibility of finding one addressed to oneself. The exhibition is likely to unleash various memories for mature viewers and present a hitherto unknown, yet intriguing world for those who have reached adulthood in the Internet era.
