Cracow Art Week is an evolution of the project named Cracow Gallery Weekend KRAKERS which since 2012 has been promoting contemporary art in the area of Krakow, creating a platform for communication, education, information and promotion and a meeting place for independent art centers and city residents. 5 years ago the organizers of the Cracow Gallery Weekend decided to transform the well-known KRAKERS into a week-long event.
The motto of the 12th edition of the event is “Art always wins!”. It is based on the legacy of Al Hansen, one of the leading representatives of the avant-garde Fluxus movement. This movement promotes and combines the activities of many fields of art: from sculpture and painting to happenings, experimental music and poetry.
