Wieslaw Borowski with a painting by Zbigniew Gostomski in front of Galeria Foksal in Warsaw. Borowski to Marek Bartelik in 2011: "Because the government closely monitored artistic activities in Poland, we created a parallel ‘second system,’ which consisted of various art events in cafés and private homes. Particularly vibrant discussions took place in [Henryk] Stażewski’s apartment. Krzywe Koło [Gallery in Warsaw] was closed in 1965, since it was considered too subversive. Our meetings thus had to be moved to another place. A café belonging to the Society of Polish Architects (SARP) on Foksal Street became our new gathering place.." (source)
