The Contemporary Museum invites you to the finissage of the exhibition “Black Spring. On Wrocław’s Independent Music Scene,” which has been seen by over 10,000 people during several months. It is a sentimental journey to Wrocław of the 1980s, full of archival audio and video recordings, photographs and other materials that are presented alongside works by visual artists, both those who were active at that time and those belonging to a younger generation.
