About the exhibition

“You’ll Never Walk Alone” is an exhibition-manifesto of solidarity with women who took to the streets after the ruling issued on 22nd October 2020 by the Polish Constitutional Tribunal led by Julia Przyłębska. As a result, Poland became one of countries with the most restrictive abortion laws in the world. That is why women protest, demanding freedom of choice and the right to decide on their own lives.

The exhibition is a voice of support for victims of institutionalised violence. We express our solidarity with people who demonstrate during marches and blockades, as well as with those who stay at home – because the apparatus of repression and contempt destroys their mental health and fills them with fear.

Opening of the exhibition “You’ll Never Walk Alone” took place on December 13th, 2020 – on the anniversary of imposing martial law in Poland. From that day on, the display is going to expand, being supplemented with the submitted proposals, thus expressing constant social mobilisation.

To participate in the exhibition, we invite authors of banners, slogans, cardboards, stickers, graphics, strike posters, photographic and video documentation of the demonstration as well as artists supporting protesters, creating works that are in solidarity with the All-Poland Women’s Strike.

We would like to show this great nationwide grassroots movement that has occurred in many hundreds of cities and towns across the country.

Works can be brought to Galeria Labirynt in person, sent by traditional post or by internet transfer. In some cities we are going to organise works collecting events, similar to Joseph Beuys’ historical “Polentransport” from 1981.

The banners can also be made at the exhibition in the Open Studio of Banners.
