Appetite for Radical Change – Exhibition Opening as part of Rediscovering the City Conference
Katowice stands out from the rest of Poland as a city defined by great dynamism and constant need for change. The rhythm of the city’s history is marked by bold visions put forward in defiance of previous achievements. The exhibition is devoid of the traditional historical narrative, which usually puts the focus on important historical figures, political events or wars. Instead, it uses diagrams, maps and data visualisations to illustrate the rapid transformations of Katowice. Thanks to this approach, a visitor can quickly understand the key historical facts and is given a broader insight into the origins of current changes. In fact, the city’s history is just an excuse to consider the future of Katowice.
