Artists from Krakow: The Generation 1950 – 1969

The publication is divided into two parts. The first comprises the curatorial text and essays by three guest authors. Maria Hussakowska reflects on the relationship between art and the city, as well as the key figures, places and initiatives that have shaped the local artistic community, amongst which the leading role has been played by the Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts – analysed by Agnieszka Jankowska-Marzec. Sebastian Stankiewicz contributes an account of the history and principles behind the Otwarta Pracownia (Open Studio) – one of the most interesting artistic associations in Krakow. The second part of the publication is devoted to individual artists; it comprises a biographical note on each, photographs of their studios, and reproductions of the works presented at the exhibition. It is supplemented by the artists discussing the extent to which they have been inspired by the Krakow tradition and commenting on the goals of art.
