The exhibitions Artists from Krakow: The Generation 1950–1969, the exhibition dedicated to Mariand Eile and Przekrój, the magazine he created, and the presentation of the works of students from the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow will open on 29 October 2020.

MOCAK began its activity on 19 May 2011. The Museum programme is centred on culture and anthropology. Another of its important focal points is the interpretation of the Holocaust. To date, we have organised 179 exhibitions of Polish and world art. We have published over 150 publications, most of them bilingual. We also conduct research and literary projects, and have therefore been granted a research unit status. MOCAK’s programme asset is its international collection, which currently comprises over 5,000 works. It is supplemented by a thematically arranged archive. Our library contains over 17,000 books. Every issue raised by the Museum is accompanied by a corresponding book collection. Our primary task is to serve society, and our main goal is to convey the value of contemporary art to the public. We also want to bring our visitors closer to Krakow and its related figures.
