pl. Szczepański 3a, Krakow

Does a photographic image have the potential to have an effect on the senses other than sight? Can it engage the nonvisual areas of human cognition, such as touch, sound, smell, heat or spatial experience? These are the questions that Jakub Woynarowski's curatorial project Echoes, part of this year’s Experimental Section, will be seeking to answer. więcej

In late 2012, the telecommunications satellite EchoStar XVI was launched into orbit around Earth. Among the objects on board was a silicon disc on which 100 carefully selected photographs had been saved. When all traces of our civilisation have vanished from Earth, the remnants of artificial satellites like EchoStar XVI will still be orbiting in space. The photos it carries will be the last images we leave behind. więcej

Hotel Oracle is a hotel without an address. As its name suggests, it is more part of the realm of myth than of everyday reality. It is a phantom building that appears in various parts of the world – it is made up of a hotel room in New York, a terrace in Paris, a wine cellar in Milan and a swimming pool in Los Angeles. During Photomonth, Hotel Oracle will appear in Krakow. To find it and see what lies within, one must follow the artist’s instructions. więcej

Floriańska 18/5, Krakow
17.05 - 15.06.2014
“To the untrained eye, bones look similar – skulls are devoid of the expression and the gestures of a human face,” write Thomas Keenan and Eyal Weizman in the book Mengele’s Skull (Frankfurt am Main, 2012), going on to compare the marks that life leaves on a human skeleton to the exposure of photographic film to light. Work, place of residence, eating habits, experience of violence – all these make imprints which a specialist can use to create a picture of a given person’s life, interpret their “osteobiography”. więcej

Walker Evans: The Magazine Work is a project devoted to the less well-known side of the work of one of the 20th century’s most important photographers. In the exhibition, David Campany analyses the work done by Evans both for small avant-garde magazines and for renowned publications such as Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, Architectural Forum, Life and Fortune.  więcej
The Seweryn Udziela Ethnographic Museum in Krakow
Krakowska 46, Kraków

Franciszek Feret - the great-grandfather of the curator and artist, Aaron Schuman – was born in Galicia in 1878. In 1900, at the age of 22, he emigrated to the United States. Schuman never met his ancestor, and before visiting the Ethnographic Museum in Krakow he knew little about Polish tradition or customs, apart from a few traditional Polish recipes and one or two family keepsakes passed down from generation to generation. In Folk: A Personal Ethnography Schuman explores the Ethnographic Museum in Krakow – and the customs and culture of ethnography itself, as represented by the museum - via his own personal history. więcej
Manggha Museum of Japanese Art and Technology
Marii Konopnickiej 26, Krakow
16.05 - 15.06.2014
“What if the divides were to be taken away from objects and photographs? If we mixed together that which seems fixed, belonging to other orders?” This is the question posed by Wojciech Nowicki, curator of the exhibition Radiation, pointing to the definitions and classifications into which photographic images are forced.  więcej
