    The exposition is devoid of the traditional historical narrative, which usually puts the focus on important historical figures, political events or wars. Instead, it uses diagrams, maps and data visualisations to illustrate the rapid transformations of Katowice. The city’s architecture plays an important role, showing the momentum and optimism of its creators, regardless of the period and political context. The studies presented by Medialab help tackle stereotypes and understand the current challenges facing Katowice, including the development of public spaces and quality of life in the city centre. In fact, the city’s history is just an excuse to consider the current status and future of Katowice.
