Plenerowa wystawa "Pełno ich nigdzie Przywracanie pamięci o polskich Żydach w przestrzeni miejskiej"

They Fill No Space. Reviving the Memory of Polish Jews in Public Spaces is an innovative outdoor exhibition dedicated to the history of Polish Jews and illustrated with the images of murals commemorating the Polish-Jewish heritage. 


Oslo, 8th September – 3rd October 2017 

It presents a selection of 30 out of 100 murals that can be found in public spaces all across Poland, produced as a reaction to the antisemitic graffiti and as an attempt to fill the void that Jews had left in the Polish landscape. Divided into over a dozen thematic sections, the exhibition acquaints its viewers with the history of Poland and suggests ways of restoring the memory in public spaces by groups of local activists or associations.

The exhibition encourages reflection upon new forms of memorials and official commemorations within the urban space. It may also serve as a statement in the process of revising Polish past and rebuilding the Polish-Jewish relations. Its main goal is to share the knowledge on the history of Polish Jews and to encourage people to engage in activities aimed at unconventional commemoration of Jews or other minority groups in public spaces. The exhibition occupies an area of approximately 100 square metres. 

The official opening of the exhibition took place in September 2017 at the HL-senteret in Oslo.

The exhibition was produced in cooperation with the Center for Studies of Holocaust and Religious Minorities in Oslo thanks to the support from the Norway and EEA Grants from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway
