About the Project
About the project:
The year 2015 has been announced by the UNESCO to be the Year of Tadeusz Kantor, and on this occasion, the Krakow Chapter of the Association of Polish Art Photographers has created the “Tadeusz Kantor in the photos of the members of the Association of Polish Art Photographers” project.”
Its main goal is the www.tadeuszkantor.com.pl portal, which documents the work of photographers connected with the Association who had worked with Tadeusz Kantor, documenting his plays, performances and scenography.
The database contains a thousand digitalised photographs by Ryszard Bobek, Tadeusz Chrzanowski, Leszek Dziedzic, Witold Górka, Zbigniew Łagocki, Wacław Nowak, Wojciech Plewiński, Jacek Stokłosa, Jacek Szmuc and Edward Węglowski. It contains photos from stagings of the Circus, The Madman and the Nun, Dainty Shapes and Hairy Apes, The Dead Class, Wielopole, Wielopole, Let the Artists Die, I Shall Never Return and Today is my Birthday. The photograps are accompanied by commentary by dr Klaudiusz Święcicki, a prominent scholar of Kantor’s work.
The “Tadeusz Kantor in the photos of the members of the Association of Polish Art Photographers” project,” sets out to both familiarise the audiences with the body of work of the artist, and to create a systematised collection of the rich body of work of the members of the Association of Polish Art Photographers who had worked with him.
The project had been partly financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.
