Le Madame and Chłodna 25 are club cafés opened at the beginning of the 21st century. These are not only places of concerts and events, but also the birthplace of non-governmental organizations and social movements. “These places influenced the development of clubbing and the related music scene, but they were also strongholds of independent culture – theater, visual arts, literature, and places that were highly inclusive and non-normative,” says the city hall.

The exhibition at the Wola Museum is a contribution to writing the history of the city from the club's perspective. – At the exhibition we will show photos from private collections, video materials, but above all, numerous ephemera: posters, tickets, zines.
