Polish Sound Postcard Exhibit

Description

During communism in Poland, at a time when vinyl records were hard to get, sound postcards became extremely popular - a local version of flexi discs. The recording quality was low, but often they represented the only available possibility of having access to hit songs from The West. In the late 70s, the cards were replaced by cassette technology. The designs on the front of Sound Postcards include everything from random photographs to unique designs. For Unsound 2019, Rui Silva and Mat Schulz will present a selection of cards, revealing the forgotten artistic merit of these cards.
