Languages of publication
Chronicles of the life and work of Tadeusz Kantor. An attempt to characterize the specific form of publications and their importance in the context of the new program for the museum of Tadeusz KantorThe article is a reflection on the publishing activities of the Centre for the Documentation of the Art of Tadeusz Kantor Cricoteka in Krakow. Since 2000 there consistently appear extensive and very detailed chronicles describing the life and work of the artist. These chronicles, which include among others, fragments of old newspaper articles, notes, letters and memoirs, depict Kantor in a variety of situations and in a broad context of political events, cultural events, etc. These types of publications, which are rather rare among the publications of other cultural institutions, are the result of research carried out by Cricoteka (as a facility dedicated to a single artist, also created by himself). The author attempts to describe the work of Cricoteka and show the specificity of its publications. She also draws attention to the potential and opportunities that lie in this kind of research and publications, especially in the context of the new program for the Museum of Tadeusz Kantor.
