The photography took by Tomasz Sikorski presented the space of the exhibition Forma i dźwięk (Form and Sound). The exhibition was displayed at the Mospan Gallery from March 20 to 25, 1978. On the photo, one could see, among others, Dorota Mroczko and Paweł Kwiek. The exposition gathered works made by the students from the sculpture workshop carried on by the professor Jerzy Jarnuszkiewicz at the Fine Arts Academy in Warsaw. The pieces presented at the exhibition were made by Krzysztof Bednarski, Hanna Roszkiewicz, Marek Sarełło, Tomasz Sikorski, Roman Woźniak and Jacek Malicki, musician, writer, philosopher who actually was not Jarnuszkiewicz’s student. The question of relations between spatial form and sound may sound strange in the context of the sculpture workshop. That was the avant-garde musician and composer Andrzej Bieżan who induced students to take up such a topic. The effects of the cooperation between Bieżan and students of sculpture were showed at the Mospan Gallery.

Skilling’s Golden Wedding anniversary, was at the Old Town Hall in April 1987. The journey Gordon Skilling made to Prague in April 1987, marked the celebration of Skilling's 75th birthday and the 50th anniversary of his marriage to Sally. The wedding ceremony was arranged by his dissident friends in the Old Town Hall, which was also the same ceremonial hall where they were married in 1937 (their wedding in October 1937 took place during G. Skilling’s first time in Czechoslovakia, where he studied the History of Central Europe as a student of London University). The anniversary celebration was a delicate irony in which the guests were fond of - a tribute to the "enemy of the state" because the Communists had released a number of dissidents which they had not known about. The next day in the Prague Evening, the news appeared, with a somewhat funny title, "Wedding Overseas". Jiřina Šiklová gained a great credit for this, because she paid the newspaper editors with the make-up from Tuzex at that time.
Gordon Skilling himself remembers this after years in an interview with Lidove Noviny in June 1993: "It was an interesting ceremony because perhaps all Czech dissidents - Havel, Pithart, Dienstbier and others - were present. It was strange that, in this honest ceremony, the chairman of the National Committee for Prague 1 spoke about what I did for Czech history. But he did not know that I also wrote a book about the Prague Spring, a book on Charter 77 and other things. He did not know it, and so he was very glad. Absurd situation. But the dissidents liked it. They were smiling internally. And then we had a gala dinner at the Municipal House. I like to recall the event."

The sixteen photographs by Erazm Ciołek documented the life, death and funeral of Reverend Popiełuszko. They were quickly assembled into an exhibition, which went on display in nine churches. Ciołek's photos gained enormous popularity and contributed to the spiritual cult of Popiełuszko and his transformation into a religious martyr. Ciołek's photos are also part of the permanent exhibition of the Museum of God Servant Reverend Jerzy Popiełuszko located on the grounds of St Stanisław Kostka's Church, Popiełuszko's last parish in Warsaw.
Przemyk's funeral was attended by tens of thousands of people, possibly the largest public gathering during the martial period, which lasted until 22 July 1983.
Ciołek's photos show the scale and drama of public response to Przemyk's death in Warsaw. His photo of Barbara Sadowska being comforted by Reverend Popiełuszko remains one of the most moving images of the martial law in Poland. Ciołek's footage of Przemyk's funeral was assemblied into an exhibition and put on display in twelve Roman Catholic churches. Later, it was published in various editions of Erazm Ciołek's work.
