Krakow in the European Core

The International Cultural Centre sees its mission and undertakings as founded on what is labelled as cultural heritage, namely using the elements of the past so as to serve present and future goals. The city understood as a mirror of civilisation – let’s take Krakow as an example – was always at the core of this way of thinking. That is why we believe that the debate on the nature of the city as well as the transformation which Krakow has undergone is crucial. »

Years of Disarray. Art of the Avant-Garde in Central Europe 1908-1928

Was the Central European avant-garde always at the vanguard of artistic change, or did it merely follow the trends dictated by Paris, Berlin, and New York? What can we learn about the avant-garde if we dismiss the narratives constructed by the national art histories? Years of Disarray: Art of the Avant-garde in Central Europe 1908–1928, exhibition presented at the International Cultural Centre, consists of chapters that together tell the story of new art movements in the region that experienced a particularly difficult period in the early 20th century. »


“Re‑Generation. Jewish Life in Poland.” Exhibition of photographs by Chuck Fishman

An exhibition of unique photographs by the outstanding American photographer Chuck Fishman, documenting the life of the Jewish community in Poland in the 1970s and 1980s, and nowadays. In his photographs, Fishman set out to capture the final chapter in the history of Polish Jewry. Fishman sought to perpetuate the memory of a community that he was sure was disappearing before his very eyes. He worked mainly in large cities, formerly important Jewish centres, where Jewish life somehow still “smouldered”.



Tychy – sacrum in a socialist city

Tychy is a unique city – created according to a coherent concept in just a few decades. From the perspective of the authorities, there was no place for the church in the newly created reality, which essentially contradicted the needs of the forming community. Over the next decades, small communities cemented by energetic clerics achieved their goals despite numerous obstacles, effectively using all the moments of political fluctuations. The exhibition will feature a dozen or so churches designed during the great city construction (1951–1989) and pre‑existing buildings that have become part of its expanding borders.
