The exhibition showcasing Polish art photography at Museum of Photography in Kraków celebrates artists working almost a century ago (1927–1978). Adam Mazur, co-curator of the exhibition, writes in his essay for the “Kraków Culture” quarterly: “The exhibition is a curated exploration of a fundamental, rarely written about period of Polish photography when modernist ideas of photography as an art and photographers as artists were being shaped.”
We are frequently captivated by simple everyday objects, and not just because of their appearance. Washing machines, cars, trams, typewriters – their history is put in the context of developing civilisation at the permanent exhibition at the Museum of Engineering and Technology following major renovation works of the building complex at Św. Wawrzyńca Street. The new route through the exhibition is a triumph of technology in and of itself, exploring the recently excavated space beneath the museum buildings.
