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?

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. »
