Portrait of the thirty-year-olds’ generation created from the images of interiors they live in and things they like. A sociological observation, not a judgment. Are they beneficiaries or victims of the transformation? They bought their apartments with bank loans and furnished their new world without looking back at the previous generation. They emerged from the painful experience of the economic crisis more careful, no longer believing the whole world is theirs to conquer. We juxtapose the “M jak Mieszkanie” magazine photo-shoots with the interiors from the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s, published in magazines. The interiors become a mark of status and follow the latest trends. In the exhibition, planned as simultaneous projections in space delineated by three walls, the images of interiors are accompanied by commentaries: humanities experts’, as well as judgments found in the Internet. The presentations will be accompanied by short video interviews about this generation.
