Located on the place where former Podgórze power station was located, the building of Cricoteka literally hovering above the existing buildings with a bizarre facade of rusted metal and black mirror.

Tadeusz Kantor (1915-1990) was an avant-garde artist, theatre director, set designer and a major figure in 20th theatre reform, known for his revolutionary theatre productions. Cricoteka, the Centre for the Documentation of the Art of Tadeusz Kantor was founded by him in 1980. The new home of Cricoteka opened in 2014 – is the first art institution in Poland dedicated to an individual artist. The fundamental concerns of Cricoteka are issues such as the nature of the artist’s output and the possible ways of presenting it in a museum.

The multifunctional site seems to be almost 50% pointless stairs, but combined with the original buildings also hosts an exhibition space, archive, theatre hall, café and bookshop; as a result, a large amount of its programme involves happenings, performances, workshops and other live events.

The Cricoteka is the museum that could be recommended only to the fans of extremely alienating, experimental theatre. While quite a limited information accompanies the displays, there are abundant amounts of printed materials trying to explain his avant-garde philosophies.

Architecture at a high level, maybe not outstanding, but definitely original. Worse because in the middle, but rather with the lack of ideas what to do with this beautiful puzzle...
This is another example of how little we have, it seems, a large money into objects, and then has no idea what they do - as though the t pieces on the Paradise...

Architektura na wysokim poziomie moze nie wybitna ale na pewno oryginalne. Gorzej z tym co w srodku a raczej z brakiem pomyslow co teraz zrobic z tym pieknym fantem...
To kolejny przyklad jak lekko sie u nas wydaje wielka kase na obiekty a potem nie ma koncepcji co w nich robic - jak chocby ogrod sztuk na Rajskiej...

The opinion relates solely cafes Crico-Caffe.

View: Exclusive
Service: pretty terrible. The so-called "bartender," I didn't know what sells, and what sells had nothing to do with the code name of the sold product...
Choice: Neither. The bartender wasn't sure what is and what can sell, but the empty shelves give think
To eat: Someone dokonczyl interior decoration...
Atmosphere: No

Tip: to Order only water after preliminary sure it swieza...

Opinia dotyczy tylko i wylacznie kawiarni Crico-Caffe.

Widok: Wyjatkowy
Serwis: Wyjatkowo beznadziejny. Tzw. "barman" nie wiedzial co sprzedaje, a to co sprzedal nie mialo nic wspolnego z umowna nazwa sprzedawanego produktu...
Wybor: Zaden. Barman nie byl pewny co ma i co moze sprzedac, ale puste polki daja do myslenia
Wystroj: Ktos nie dokonczyl dekoracji wnetrza...
Atmosfera: Brak

Rada: Zamawiac tylko wode po wczesniejszym upewnieniu sie, ze jest swieza...

It is a fantastic place, not only because of their appearance, but primarily because of the amazing exhibitions. Highly recommend tracking poczynan this place because it is one of the more valuable points on the cultural map of the City.

Jest to fantastyczne miejsce, nie tylko ze wzgledu na swoj wyglad, ale przede wszystkim ze wzgledu na niesamowite wystawy. Goraco polecam sledzenie poczynan tego miejsca, gdyz jest ono jednym z bardziej wartosciowych punktow na kulturowej mapie Krakowa.
