The project entitled Ulotka [The Flyer] is a set of 31 works created using various graphic techniques and displayed on two poster display racks. The form of the exhibition resembled a wind rose, thus indicating the directions of various, individual creative searches. The artists presented their projects created according to specific guidelines (A4 size). They combined various points of view (including political, ethical, aesthetic, historical) with fragments of social reality, creating ‘misunderstandings and misconceptions’1 of non-standard ways in which an individual functions in the contemporary world. This allowed the emergence of new interpretations and progressive cultural patterns. The exhibition featured works by graphic artists from two art centres in Poznań and Wrocław.
