The word and text as a visual motive is the starting point for this presentation. Works of Polish artists presented here: Jadwiga Sawicka, Wojciech Bąkowski and Honza Zamojski are clearly located on the side of the ‘Diaries’. It does not mean that the democracy in Poland is so firmly established that is does not stir emotions or motivate to go out in the streets, but - definitely, the most interesting art happens somewhere else. Even when art communicates via messages aimed at the public space, it is much more contemplative. The artists from Poland are poets who work with ‘lyrical’, ambiguous, personal text. They no longer fight for common rights, but speak individually and very personally. The highest registers are reached at the exploration of everyday life, the simplest emotions, and most ordinary situations.

Belarussian artists are Zhanna Gladko, Alexey Lunev and Sergey Shabohin.
