Bunkier online, May 2020


Kraków art gallery Bunkier Sztuki continues to carry on its exhibition and education programme in the Internet space. Along with the Gallery’s preparations for opening to visitors in the second stage of rebooting the economy, online activities will be maintained.

The online realm won’t, of course, fully replace the chance to commune with art, but it is becoming a new natural environment for all sorts of meetings, classes, presentations, lectures as we speak. Thus, the Gallery is not going to abandon its special Bunkier Online project; on the contrary, we are set to expand it with new online exhibitions, education workshops and creative art exercises for the young’uns.

This May, online video exhibition from the Bunkier Sztuki Collection will be presented. Each work will be supplemented with a curator’s commentary and art historian’s introduction to make in-depth learning about the artworks possible. This should benefit the people who are just starting their adventure with contemporary art.

At the workshops targeted to various demographics, artists will take the mantle of educators and invite the participants to have creative fun together.

Individual resources will be posted on the Gallery’s social media and its website www.bunkier.art.pl. Trivia and contests will abound. You can even expect a music release! #staytuned
