007 was considered in communist Poland to be anti-socialist, so an alternative version was created. The original series premiered on 25 November 1976, one day before the release of ‘Anarchy in the UK’ by Sex Pistols. Artist Brendan Jackson, inspired by the ‘socialist Bond’, has initiated a project to explore this murky world.

Opens 6pm Thursday 27 March

Before Calling 07, Iwona Kurz's talk on Sunday 30, at midday the Kavarna will be hosting a short 'finissage' event for Imaginary Poland with coffee and cake.

Supported by the Polish Cultural Institute in London. Presented in association with Polish Expats Association (PEA) and Laundry.
