"These will be mainly children's drawings from the Baliem Valley in West Papua, desert areas of central Oman, and the Upper Silesia - all addressing questions about the past and visions for the future. Working with children has been one of the activities in the research entitled Fluid Identity which I have been heading under a grant from the University of Arts in Poznań. In addition, you will be able to see a documentary showing the life in the Baliem Valley, as well as some documentation of the land art activities which I conducted on five continents under the collective title Travel Sketches, says Sławomir Brzoska.
