Edited by Łukasz Murzyn, Joanna Winnicka-Gburek

Catalogue of the exhibition Hidden Life. The Child in Polish Contemporary Art examining the image of children and childhood, as seen by 40 contemporary artists. This book can be read by adults together with children. Monika Chrabąszcz-Tarkowska’s graphic concept assumes the use of an endpaper as part of the visual narrative this is where the poster girl’s braid begins, which then turns into a kind of labyrinth that we follow through the individual pages of the book.
