Tadeusz Kantor (1915–1990) was a Polish painter, drawer, scenographer, director, creator of experimental theatre and its theorist, author of happenings and artistic manifests, professor of Krakow (1967–1968) and Hamburg (1961) Art Academies, the artist who contributed much to the formation of avant-garde medium in Poland and especially in Krakow.
At the beginning of the exhibition a scenography fragment from performance "Balladyna" is demonstrated. A play, directed by Juliusz Słowacki in the Independent Theatre in 1943, became a sensation of the underground Krakow during the war time. Theatrical objects, created during "Cricot 2" activity period: "Cloakroom" from performance "The Lovely and the Ugly" (1973) and school benches with dummies of schoolchildren and their supervisors from the legendary performance of T. Kantor "Dead Class" (1975), deserve the special attention.
For the first time ever the audience will have an opportunity to watch a reconstructed work of T. Kantor – the scenography of the third staging of the performance "In a Tiny Manor", which was created for German movie "Sacks, Wardrobe and Umbrella" in 1969. This performance (the name of it had been changed into "A Wardrobe" (Der Schrank)), which was shown in Western Germany in 1966, marked the start of international recognition for T. Kantor.
