GET OVER IT. Małgorzata Mycek, Oliwer Okręglicki, Niko Płaczek, Ada Adu Rączka, Sebulec

The event is part of the Pride Month celebrations, inviting people to affirm together the richness of queer culture and live in harmony with themselves.

Inclusivity, or openness, is a strategy against the creation of closed social groups whose existence is a manifestation of discrimination against people on the basis of their origin, gender identity, sexual orientation or skin colour. An inclusive perspective embraces, respects and accepts diversity. It is a readiness for change and a willingness to understand and learn from it.
In the exhibition GET OVER IT, we look at queer inclusivity, which has long since found expression in the visual arts. Together with the artists, we address issues such as non-binarity, transgender and inclusive language. The works on display, complemented by the social campaigns of the invited organisations, make up a rainbow guide to minority communities. The event is part of the Pride Month celebrations, inviting people to affirm together the richness of queer culture and live in harmony with themselves.
