For those with a craving for experiences that go beyond film, we recommend the Kontr-akt interactive performance (17:30) at IP Studio. At 18:00, the last guided tour of the exhibition Inner Life: The Bump (Studio BWA Wrocław gallery) will take place. The tour will feature a special guest: Ola Jasionowska, the artist who designed the iconic Women's Strike poster that became synonymous with female solidarity in the fight for reproductive rights in Poland. Ola will talk about the short history behind the creation of the visual identity of the National Women's Strike and its rapid dissemination first through social media, then through protests on the streets, as well as its spread beyond Poland. Today, we also recommend A Horizontal Panorama: Kodras at TIFF Gallery, Albert Serra's multimedia installation Sun King at OP ENHEIM, and the interactive exhibition Cabinet | Das Kabinett at Centennial Hall. At 19:00, you will have a chance to see a theatrical adaptation of Paul Thomas Anderson's Magnolia, directed by Krzysztof Skonieczny (Wrocławski Teatr Współczesny).
