Summary/Abstract: Joanna Jopek's article sums up the second edition of the Wielkopolska: Revolutions program, and is primarily an analysis of the participation strategies it used, the meetings between avant-garde artists and small communities, the statuses of host and guest, and the impact of the mainstream confronting the "periphery." The author is convinced that the Wielkopolska project is far from the superficial participation described by Markus Miessen in his book The Nightmare of Participation, which is quoted in this article. On the basis of two projects, Letters for Freedom and Conversation with a Medium, Jopek examines both the dramaturgical strategies applied and the artistic value, as well as the social function of the Wielkopolska curatorial program.
