A woman walks in front of an "Asia Foods" shop. The participants of the projects frequently highlight that they dislike how in Poland their identity is reduced to the adjective “Asian” and that they see it way more complex than that. In the window is a photograph from 9th November 1968, which depicts a Delegation representing the Vietnamese Workers’ Party who arrived in Warsaw for the fifth Congregation of the Polish United Workers’ Party. The participants of the Ba Lan project often expressed frustration with the way that a diverse community is often reduced to two most frequently used adjectives: “Asian” and “Oriental.”
