Exhibition is a result of Watch out! educational project that lasted few months. Its main objective was exploring urban space of Lublin Old Town and Lublin Housing Cooperative (Lubelska Spółdzielnia Mieszkaniowa). Participants of the project were people connected with theoretical aspects of art as well as those who create art on their own. The project evaluated focusing especially on the space of ul. Ruska (Ruska Street) marketplace that was seen by the participants as symbolical reference to art market in a broad sense.

The curator used two-level exhibiting space of Galeria Labirynt 2 to split the whole exhibition in two parts. The first one summarises the project by presenting documentation and results of research on the city and its history based on constructive meetings and discussions carried out during Watch Out! project. The second part of the exhibition is the result of reflection on the world of art and similarities between art market and marketplace as well as the effect of remarks on specific place and people.
