Does a fascination with the village mean abandoning the city? Is it possible – when referring to village traditions – to escape restrictive norms? Can one dare to experiment? Is it possible to use local sources for inspiration without duplicating their well-known motifs? How can we awaken the power of heritage? Two of our outdoor exhibitions attempt to answer these questions – What Makes a Village? Playing with Tradition / Playing with Imagination will take place on the Wolnica Square in Kraków, and in the Sądecki Ethnographic Park we will present What Makes a Village? On Your Own / Custom-made to Fit.14.07.2018 – 28.10.2018
