The exhibition is a reaction to the declining interest in the management of the Lubná clubhouse and the reluctance of the younger generation to take up responsibility for its continued running. This space has been used since 2010 by a community of local residents in their thirties as a place for weekend social events. It has become a safe zone, a peaceful haven, a space for sharing the hardships and spending time together. It is where groups of people meet who have stayed in the country despite the possibility of moving to big cities. The imminent closure of the clubhouse does not only leave its visitors with nostalgic memories, but also pushes away problems that the local community was trying to solve at least on a personal level behind its closed doors, creating another periphery. The closing of the clubhouse puts a stop to sharing and sends the millennial generation back to their rooms.

Exhibiting artists include Štěpán Brož, Jiří Gruber, Vanda Michalská, Petr Nápravník, Kateřina Rafaelová, Michal Rejzek and others.
