Momentum Gallery 06 – No longer valid

21 stories from around the world. Different languages, narratives and forms of expression. This is new AP KunstArt Fund international exhibition: No longer valid.

It all started in January, when we had high hopes for the new year. As a foundation team – we brainstormed, and decided that we’d like to rethink what is really behind us. Ideas, forms, feelings that we stick to sometimes seem already like a rememberance from the past. A crumb that is no longer useful but somehow sticks to the surface and changes the form.

And then everything changed. As much as we try to stay away from the politics, one cannot stay away from war. European peace is over and we’re all trying to build from pieces that are just being crushed. Suddenly asking what is No longer valid got a new dimension.

The happier we are that we received wonderful submissions from Ukrainian artists: Vlad Nikorchuk,  Artem Humilevskyi, Anastasia Milova, Daria Pugachova, Kostyantyn Militynskyy – we are proud to exhibit their works.

With No longer valid exhibition we’re diving deep into contemporary and – at the same time – timeless issues. Ecology, gender identieties, memory and myths. And of course – forms. Sufficient, intriguing, open. As we’re not looking for answers, just for questions.

Feel invited to join this artistic journey, both at the exhibition and with this booklet. We give space for artists so they can speak for themselves and their work, intentions and goals.

Now we’re inviting you to another open call for the exhibition “No longer valid”. Below you’ll find exhibition and all technical info. Open call is open till 21.02. 6pm (CET).

We’re looking forward your works!

No longer valid

Exhibition title is No longer valid and we’re looking for artworks dealing with losses and abandoned meanings wishing for a ray of nostalgia. Do not dive into easy pathways and nostalgic moods from the past. Find today’s stories that already seem to be no longer valid. Spaces that no longer serve their purposes, identieties that are still „in progress”, goods that no longer should be made or bought, trends that seem attractive but smell like past.

We do not look for answers, we’re looking for poetic statements from different parts of the world.

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.
