In this Facebook album we collect the most innovative pieces of meme culture. We select memes that honestly examine the millennial generation, deliver unpretentious and fresh observations on contemporary life, and explore new visual strategies for storytelling on the internet.
We wanted to cut out all the layers and sophistications in culture, and simply ask this core question. We approached a wide spectrum of people, not only professional artists, to answer the question in the form of a short movie. The idea behind the project is that any attempt on such a hardcore question is a big deal – even if it only touches the answer a little bit.

We cooperated with a couple of artists to create images for this exhibition and a small publication by Raster Gallery.
A folder including each of these printed images can be purchased at Raster Gallery, Warsaw.

Fame: How We Get There, a Local Story paints a universal portrait of fame from a local perspective. The film tells three stories of rappers and how they become famous in a small Polish town called Opole.
After Fame was released the gallery organized a trip to Opole to better understand the perspective of the characters in the film. Jan Domicz, the artist, guided us through Opole – his hometown – during the four-day adventure. See map & photos.
