Unique in socialist eastern Europe, Polish art in the 1960s and 70s is marked by a variety and openness of perspectives whose free development was only weakly opposed by the state, in contrast to most of Poland’s neighbours. By confronting its own modernist tradition and interacting with artistic movements in the west, an independent, interconnected conceptual art scene developed on an international level that has remained almost unknown in Germany until today.
