Missing Documents: Photographs of the Polish Transition After 1989, a new exhibition at the Center for Contemporary Art, consists of photographs by both Polish and foreign photographers that document the changes that have taken place in Poland since it emerged from communism two decades ago.

The displayed photographs include both images that tell the stories of individual people and ones that document political milestones.

Photographs by top photographers such as Anna Beata Bohdziewicz, Chris Niedenthal, Tomasz Tomaszewski and Wojciech Wieteska show Poland as a country on a quest for a new economic, social and cultural identity, torn between communism and capitalism.

Foreign photographers such as Carl de Keyzer, Allan Sekula, Mark Power, Rineke Dijkstra and Zoe Leonard provide a wider perspective on the postcommunist changes in Poland, showing how dynamic they have been compared with those elsewhere in the world.

The exhibition is the first event in the three-year Postdokument program organized by the Center for Contemporary Art to showcase the most interesting trends in documentary photography, cinema and literature.
