The initiative for the German-Polish exhibition project “Wer im Glashaus sitzt, sollte nicht mit Steinen werfen” came from the German curator and gallery owner Gottfried Hafemann and the Polish artist Leszek Golec. In a video tour, Hafemann explains the purpose of the project and introduces the work of those artists involved:

By contrast, in her video presentation, which was intended for a German audience, Dorota Monkiewicz focuses on introducing the Polish artists in the context of the general development of Polish contemporary art at the threshold of the 20th and 21st century, giving particular consideration to current developments (Polish with German subtitles by Urszula Usakowska-Wolff):
