Greetings from America! is a footnote to the project launched in 2011, America is Not Ready for This, whose inspiration was a visit by the Polish neo-avant-garde artist Natalia LL to the U.S. in the summer of 1977. In addition to the documentary film of the same title, which is a collection of interviews with representatives of the New York art world, new material will be shown which is part of an archive created by Karol Radziszewski. This inconsistent image of the art of those times comprises statements originating on both sides of the Iron Curtain, including a story by a representative of the American underground, Mario Montez, who died in 2013.
