The book is a catalogue for the exhibition „A Story Differently Told” that took place in Laznia CCA between 6.06–03.08.2008 for Laznia CCA 10th Anniversary. The following artists participated in the exhibition: Tomasz Ciecierski, Jarosław Kozłowski, Zofia Kulik, Aleksandra Polisiewicz, Zbigniew Libera and Darek Foks. Bożena Czubak was a curator.
„A Story Differently Told” is a project that tries to find out in contemporary artists' works artistic polemic ideas to the history of art as we know from the formal discussion and the galleries. The exhibition does not aim to radically demonstrate anything or express any ideological antagonisms but to show more subtle and also double-dealing strategies to veryfy art canons supported by the institutions. The strategies to understand the contemporary art, and understand them in a greater perspective. The artists participating in the exhibition showed different versions of the history, they told their stories about the past differently, they also differently interpreted themselves. The works presented during the exhibition brought into a light all that things that did not meet standard expectations, all that things that developed on a side, outside the mainstream. Their narrations often put the individual memory and experience before straight rules of the art history. The artists offer slightly different way for understanding the contemporaneity and the tradition doubting the herarchy and division.
