Zajawka (brief insight, trailer) exhibition tells the story of a fascination with the African-American hip-hop movement of the 1970s. Born as a protest against racism and exclusion, for Polish teenagers between 1993 and 2003, the movement became a medium through which they expressed themselves and eventually shaped their worldview. It is the world seen from the perspective of an adolescent living in the 1990s, for whom MTV was more important than political changes. Young people who were part of the hip-hop subculture were either involved or knew everything about hip-hop music, DJing, painting graffiti, and breakdancing. They could recognise each other in the street because they shared the same look - baggy pants, oversized hoodies, caps or bandanas. They were part of a community, had a strong sense of belonging, which is sth every teenager craves.
