Her most recent book is »Culture Class«, published by e-flux and Sternberg Press in 2013 from which the essay in this volume is drawn.

In November 2012 she presented her performance and installation »Meta-Monumental Garage Sale« at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and in 2014 her exhibition and project »Guide for the Perplexed: How to Succeed in the New Poland« was held at the Center for Contemporary Art in Warsaw.
