On the 10th of December, 1989, after years of effort, the most hated Lenin monument in the history of Nowa Huta was demolished. It was the largest Lenin monument in Poland. It weighed about 7 tons and depicted the figure of the leader of the October Revolution in motion. The exhibition tells the history of the monument (including many attempts to blow it up) and its final demise. It has been 30 years since its dismantling, but the subject of the non-existent monument still arouses great interest. The exhibition features works of contemporary artists, Jacek Sroka, Paweł Susid and Krzysztof M. Bednarski, next to the well known Andy Warhol's pop-art pieces depicting Lenin plus the artist's "Hammer and Sickle" series.
