In the Cistern located in front of the Ujazdowski Castle, you will be able to watch recordings of fragments of a meeting with Oleg Kulik, a performance by Jan Świdziński and a butoh dance show from the first, 1994 edition of the Rozdroże festival.

On the ground floor of the Ujazdowski Castle, we will present video essays from the Bik Van der Pol Far Too Many Stories to Fit into so Small a Box exhibition presented at Ujazdowski in 2019 and 2020.
