The project supports a proposal for an experimentally orientated publication, through a series of workshops, design consultation and production budget.

'On the Absurd, Architecture, Living Rooms, and a Soviet symbol', written by Magdalena Nieduzak.
My project Disco Polo got into the third issue of Contemporary Lynx. This issue deals with the aesthetics of Eastern Europe during the 90s and so provides the reader with an exciting opportunity to analyse the relations of art, pop culture and everyday life of that decade in connection to the things happening here and now.
