Thirty to Tomorrow
Thursday – Sunday, 11 AM – 7 PM
Cricoteka, 2-4 Nadwiślańska Street, Kraków
A direct point of reference for this polyphonic exhibition is the current installment of Cricoteka’s permanent exhibition “Tadeusz Kantor. Spectres”, devoted to the subject of difficult memory and traumas of the past. “Thirty to Tomorrow” brings these issues into the present times: it touches upon the issue of the disintegration of a general, universal vision of culture. It focuses on individual fears, nourished by people living here and now.
The artists confront their disbelief not only in a good future, but in any future at all. This doubt stems from experience of a pandemic and the perspective of a climate catastrophe. What is also crucial is the situation of exhausting the cultural paradigm based on the concept of unlimited progress and economic growth. Such development is reaching its end, and the fragility of the world is becoming particularly painful – this moment is the Thirty to… Tomorrow.
On 13 October at 6 p.m., the vernissage of the “Thirty to Tomorrow” exhibition will take place, during which it will become a venue for the performative actions of Robert Kuśmirowski and the invited artists.
Exhibition is subsidized by the Ministry of Culture, National Heritage and Sports from the Fund for Cultural Promotion.
