The Zachęta National Gallery of Art is staging an exhibition entitled People, Events and Changes-20 Years of Gazeta Wyborcza Photography.

Gazeta Wyborcza photographers have been scrutinizing Poland, Europe and the world for the last 20 years. They have captured this era on millions of photographs. The exhibition has no chronology, but it does have a multitude of heroes. Some of them are prominent Poles such as the poet and Nobel laureate Wisława Szymborska, or the film director and Oscar winner Andrzej Wajda. Others are office workers, teachers, farmers, feminists, Roma, unemployed or simply anonymous passersby. But the main protagonist is change. This is emphasized by contrasting series of photographs from now and two decades ago.

Another protagonist is shared emotion: political, economic, religious, or sports events; unending debates about the Polish school system, health system reform, the church, homophobia, communist agent disclosure, and anti-Semitism.

The return of democracy opened Poland to the world and gave it the possibility of encountering other cultures, religions and ways of thinking.
