Czas przełomu opens its gates in a week

A unique exhibition project will be presented at the International Culture Centre in Krakow in a week.

The Olomouc Museum of Art will soon past the baton to its colleagues from the International Centre of Culture in Cracow. The International Centre will become the main venue of the ArtCoMe project in the upcoming months. The rerun of the ‘Years of Disarray 1908–1928. Avant-gardes in the Central Europe’ exhibition will be ceremonially launched in a week on March 7, 2019.


'There are three reruns awaiting the exhibition after the premiere in Olomouc that is in Poland, Slovakia and Hungary. Each reprise will be a little bit different. They will vary in number and selection of artworks,' says the author of the exhibition Karel Srp who added that the Olomouc exhibition was the largest.


Visitors will see artworks created by Polish, Czech, Slovak, Hungarian, Romanian, Austrian and German avant-garde artists illustrating the points of contact and differences in the concept of avant-garde within the Central European countries. 'The added value is the selection of unique avant-garde magazines about art, as well as publications, posters and brochures that demonstrate experiments and innovative typography efforts,' concludes Srp.


The best of the Central European avant-garde can be admired by visitors of the International Centre of Culture in Cracow until June 9, 2019. Afterwards, the exhibition moves to Bratislava.
