Dissonant Heritage of Central Europe - new issue of the HERITO quarterly
Should the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw be preserved or demolished? How to address the dissonant heritage of death camps and monuments to the Red Army? What is the secret to the phenomenon of some “large plate” tower blocks and Socialist Realist architecture? Are we willing to take responsibility for the entirety of material inheritance passed to us by older generations regardless of their national or ideological connotations?

Krakers. Cracow Gallery Weekend in ICC
The theme of this year’s edition of CGW KRAKERS is Change. Change is one of the basic modalities of modern times. This applies in principle to all areas of everyday life, ranging from surface recognition of phenomena to deep structures that might change the way human beings function in the world. As an imperative change often becomes a marketing strategy or a tool in positive psychology. In humanities, often a ground for ostracizing traditional normativity, change is, in turn, present as an opportunity and manifestation of freedom. The development of digitization and technology made it possible to integrate virtual reality into everyday human life, which seems to have blurred the concept of reality itself. A transformation can also be noticed in the area of art, which has noticeably been exploring the new opportunities it has been presented with along with the raising importance of new media, as well as actively referring to the issues that a person faces with the adoption of a constantly accelerating rhythm of change.
