“You Will Never Walk Alone” is an exhibition and a manifest of solidarity with women who took to the streets after the judgment delivered on 22/10/2020 by the Constitutional Tribunal led by Julia Przyłębska. As a result, Poland found itself in the infamous group of countries with the most restrictive abortion laws in the world. That is why the women protested, demanding freedom of choice and the right to decide about their own life.
People who created banners, slogans, cardboard boxes, stickers, graphics, strike posters, photo and video documentation, as well as artists who, in order to support the protesters, created works in solidarity with the Polish Women’s Strike were invited to participate in the exhibition. It aims to show this great nationwide grass-roots movement, that took place in hundreds of cities, towns and villages all over the country.
For safety reasons, we limited the number of people who can participate in the guided tour. We also remind you that face and mouth coverings must be worn throughout the whole event – protective masks are available at the bookstore. We regularly disinfect the surfaces in the gallery and provide hand sanitiser.
Free admission. Limited number of participants. Registration for the guided tour is accepted via the application form.
