The starting point for the exhibition is the space of the Silesian Museum as a place for a dialogue of past and present, oriented to the future, where the atmosphere of openness to art is created. Thirty prominent Polish artists were invited to contribute to the exhibition, among them Magdalena Abakanowicz, Wojciech Fangor, Izabela Gustowska, Roman Kalarus, Zofia Kulik, Paweł Althamer, Przemysław Lasak, Adam Myjak, Monika Sosnowska, Jerzy Truszkowski and Artur Żmijewski. They were offered the chance to create one work dedicated to the museum in a medium chosen by them (painting, sculpture, photography, poster, installation, video-art).
