10) Disco Relaks – an exhibition about Disco Polo

“Throughout “Disco Relaks”, we showcase the origins of proto-disco-polo in the 1960s and the 70s, focus on disco polo’s affair with the turbo-capitalism of the 1990s, and display the modern-day genre-specific references in contemporary art and alternative music. In the very center of the exhibition, the sensual disco polo of women reigns supreme. You may be familiar with songs by Shazza and La Strada, but what about Magda Durecka and Renata Dąbkowska? Visit “Disco Relaks” if this is the first time you’ve heard about them!”
