Berlegustopol is a temporary company established by the participants of the exhibition. Due to the fact of its creation Piktogram/BLA gallery space will be transformed into a special type of exchange zone, “service-and-trade enterprise”. Explosion of private entrepreneurship that took place immediately after central planning-socialism was deposed in Poland after 1989 resulted in record-breaking increase in the number of new private companies. As much as 600,000 of such private businesses came into existence solely during 1990-1991 period!
