The "Exhibition", presented at the Museum’s temporary HQ and in the neighbouring locations (the pedestrian passage in front of it, the Honorary Tribune on the Defilad Sq.), comprises of works by artists, who relate their practice to design and urban planning and who borrow from their languages.

They offer no solutions, do not yield to the demand for functionality. Instead, they bring into focus the particularities of Central-European urban space. The key-words to that world are: temporariness, decay, non-durability, anarchy, the validity of urban utopias. Where complex solutions are bound to fail, makeshift replaces designing and becomes an alternative way of satisfying needs. Temporariness, remaining half-way characterizes Warsaw just as other metropolises of the dynamically developing regions – Asia, Middle East or Latin America. David Maljkovic

Twenty artists representing different nationalities, have been invited to participate. Their common field of interest includes the (dis)functionalities of the urban space.
