Second edition of photo-book ‘Disco Polo’  by Paulina Korobkiewicz now available @dadianifineart

Disco Polo documents the aesthetics in Eastern Poland after 1989. This publication focuses on the mixed influences from East and West, the effects of global capitalism on the Polish landscape dominated by consuming colourful advertising. The project presents kitsch rough-and-ready billboards, pastel-coloured concrete blocks and suburban night-clubs. It explores a search for a ‘better world’ and omnipresent visual chaos in the urban landscape. Lack of experts in local housing associations resulted in randomly chosen shades, turning the streets into a vivid collage of pastel tower blocks.
