Wiener Klassiker.

Vienna is a city with two faces. This classic one: rich, full of art, Freud, history and bittnerness of the past. And this new one: the one that is being named as „the best city in the world” (by Mercer competition). This second face is not Stephansplatz and neither Klimt is. It’s more to be found around Hauptbanhof, Praterstern or Seestadt, it constitutes in comfortable living, available apartments, public transport and greenery.


Beata Malinowska-Petelenz, touched by nostalgia and urban melancholy, comes back to Vienna with her own traces. Continues her drifting with a sketchbook and invites us to visit the best city in the world. She leads us via streets woven with lines, details and imagined spaces that stay untouched by time. „Wiener Klassiker” means classy and timeless, it’s an immortal reference and one of the hearts of former Galicia. It means places that are and still demand being discovered.


Exhibition of Vienna drawings is organised with contrast perspective – you’ll find here both wide open spaces as well as details and small, usually not even seen, parts that tourist passes by. Architecture, as the flesh of the city, becomes independent and intimate, overgrowing it’s usual pragmaticness.

Artists for Farm of Life – summary

Artists for Farm of Life is a unique event as it combines different groups of people, sometimes estranged to each other. This year, again, artists decided to support foundation „Wspólnota Nadziei” and so they donated their works. Works were presented during an exhibition in Krakow in SARP Gallery. Then all of them went to charity auction.

And so – over 120 works (!) were sold for over 85 k zł. This is a huge outcome and great support for the Więckowice house – center for adults with autism.

AP KunstArt Fund Team proudly supported this event and we’re very happy with the outcome.

33rd KRAKOW INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF COMPOSERS

For the second time we’re happily and proudly supporting Krakow International Festival of Composers.

This time in the programme we highly recommend you to pay attention to composers: Lera Auerbach, Kataryna Gryvul, Martyna Kosecka, Grażyna Pstrokońska-Nawratil! Please follow our information on niemuzeum social media channels and – for now – reserve your time between 10-18th April for concerts.

Artists for Farm of Life

We’re very happy to announce that we’re supporting “Artists for Farm of Life” event organised by Wspólnota Nadziei Foundation since 2006, which is centered around an art exhibition and charity auction supporting home for adult people with autism.

Many artists shared theirs artworks, like Rafał Olbiński, Beata Malinowska-Petelenz, Iwona Siwek-Front, Krzysztof Ludwin and many many more.

Interior. Light. Shadow competition (Wnętrze. Światło. Cień)

Since the very beginning AP KunstArt Fund leads it’s educational project and profile niemuzeum. In 2020 we supported another great educational project – polish competition – Wnętrze. Światło. Cień.

Interior is really heart and soul of the building . “Interior. Light. Shadow” competition in organised yearly by Chair of Housing Design with honourable patronage of Dean of Architecture Faculty of Technical University in Krakow and SARP – Krakow.

2020 theme: „Space inspired by art”

Theme for the task was to design a chosen interior (either a flat or a public space) with entrance space, garden, public space, small architecture or greenery – inspired with a chosen work of art.

Art is an important part of our lives and – sometimes – also a part of the space we spend time in. Architect or designers work is – or could be – connected with using work of art or cooperation with artists. We encourage to use visual arts as an inspiration for creating an original interior. Object could be used as an inspiration for lightening, forms, color or mood. Artworks used as inspiration should be used from public domain (copyrights – 70years after authors death).

Coronavirus

Coronavirus changed everything. Or almost everything. Cancelled our plans – two events during KRAKERS, concert in Vienna during WOW Signal Festival and other. A3 exhibition in MAG Gallery, which we managed to support right before the pandemic – of course got closed. Everyone, also our Foundation got hit by this global change.

We believe we’ll meet each other soon – live. Today we encourage you to stay in touch with art via online channels. Check our niemuzeum website and instagram profile.

Stay healthy!

“Do not go to Venice” exhibition by Beata Malinowska-Petelenz

Please feel invited to the opening of “Do not go to Venice” exhibition, drawings and photographs by Beata Malinowska-Petelenz in Trzecie Oko Gallery in Krakow.

Because you should not go to Venice anymore. At least – not like it happens now. As Venice is drowning. It’s trampled by one-day-stand tourists and huge cruises ships. Amazonian forests get smaller every day and Notre Dame chapel burnt down in the eyes of the digitialized world and online weepers.

Today, travelling, both those real ones and virtual, is the essence od XXI century. They no longer recall old, romantic excursions to the new world. Today, special and desired spaces are available, over-consumed and – finally – ruined by turistic movement. That’s why Beata Malinowska-Petelenz invites viewers to the journey of paradox – journey created with drawings and photographs, old memories and feelings stolen from those places. With only black and white, Author focuses on forms, scraps and visual meanings that create the identity of the place. She shows spaces that undergo natural, but most of all – post-consumptional evolution. And she proposes a visual journey with her to those places. So…do not go to Venice.

Exhibition:

Do not go to Venice, Beata Malinowska-Petelenz, drawings and photographs

Opening: 9.01.2020, 7pm

Trzecie Oko Gallery, Krakow, Bochenska street 5
