Scene from the legen­dary Polish comedy from the 1970’s “Kochaj albo Rzuć” (“Big Deal”). Two main charac­ters, Kargul and Pawlak find them­selves in America where their traditional “familiar” men­tality and habits will be put to a serious test. The pic­ture was pain­ted for the exhibition “Structures of Good” in Raster, at a time when the issue of homosexuality in Poland became a sub­ject of political games and ideological manipulations.
