Summary/Abstract: Ewa Guderian-Czaplińska writes about the exhibition Let's Dance (Art Station Gallery, Stary Browar Poznań, 20 Jun – 18 Oct 2015), curated by Joanna Leśniarowska, Tomasz Plata and Agnieszka Sosnowska. Its point of departure is the analysis of the recording of a spontaneous dance of Aaron Taylor-Johnson to the R.E.M. song ÜBerlin, which, according to the author, perfectly illustrates the title of the exhibition. However, the thematic range of the exposition at Stary Browar is very broad and alongside works energetically showing the “liberating power of dance”, there are also those which question it. For some, visiting the exhibition can also become a sentimental journey leading from the classics of modern dance through pop music videos to the so-called “Internet hits”.
