Story-Re-Telling | Exhibition
Filip Springer on how the project came about:
The project’s publisher is dwutygodnik.com, an Internet magazine published by NInA. Its editor in chief, Zofia Król, explains Służew’s genesis thusly:
The story took on the shape of an Internet website designed by Michał Szota in a way that makes text, image, and video equal elements of the narrative. It doesn’t have a defined beginning or end, encouraging a nonlinear reading, and moves between three points of view: that of a village, a housing estate, and a garden. Side by side, we have here a game of bridge played on a balcony, goats at Służewski Dom Kultury (Służew Community Center), and the futuristic NInA server rooms.

Agnieszka Słodownik wrote to me that the National Audiovisual Institute is moving into a new headquarters and asked if I would like to write something about Służew’s architectural foundations. I died inside a bit. No, I wouldn’t. But then she added: We’re seeing this building as a palimpsest. We come here, and imbue it with some new meaning, but we’re not the first to do so. She had me there. Sly vixen.”
