The opening of the new Cricoteka

Tadeusz Kantor (1915–1990) was one the most significant Polish artists and reformers of the theatre in the 20th century.

Thus the artist's vision will finally be fulfilled: the creation of a space fit for a living artistic event.  Cricoteka functions simultaneously as museum, archive, gallery and research centre, boasting a... continue reading

Mean Girls: Keren Cytter and “Vengeance”

by MELISSA GRONLUND

The woman appears put down, but you get the feeling that’s... continue reading
