This work on video is part of a larger project ”Life in Bytom”, which was presented at the Gallery CSW Kronika in Bytom, Poland from November 24, 2012 to January 26, 2013. This project was a research based on social investigation, which resulted on a work on video, printed matter and a live performance, ”Life in Bytom.”
This work on video is based on interviews, workshops, archive material and my per-sonal experiences in Bytom, which is a post-industrial mining town in Silesia, the Katowice mining area. The result is not an objective investigation, but rather an affective reflection on the changes of the life conditions, which has happened in Bytom in past twenty years.
