A group of artists led by Jakub de Bar­baro, Agnieszka Polska and Jacek Simon has prepared an amazing holiday project: a traveling gal­lery called Szalona Galeria (Crazy Gal­lery) that will visit small towns all around Poland during a summer road­trip in July and August. In each stop they will set a camp with a pop-​up exhibition and art book­shop, fol­lowed by film projec­tions. Other artists that had agreed to take part in the project by len­ding their works for this art caravan are, among others: Rafał Buj­now­ski, Oskar Dawicki, Aneta Grzeszykow­ska, Marcin Maciejow­ski, Honorata Martin, Prze­mek Matecki and Wil­helm Sasnal. The whole idea was born as a fun and positive reac­tion to the drastic socio-​political chan­ges, also regar­ding cul­tural politics, cur­ren­tly experien­ced in Poland. 
Szalona Galeria will be finan­ced by the artists them­selves and crowd­fun­ding. Everyone who sup­ports the project will receive specially designed “crazy” post­cards, posters and editions, or even more precious prizes like the mock-up of the gal­lery (prepared by another artist, Katarzyna Przezwańska) that was first shown during a conference/exhibition “DE-MO-KRA-CJA” in Labirynt gal­lery in Lublin.
