Bunker of Art gallery in Krakow

Bunker of Arts, Krakow's bastion of contemporary art.  

In 1965 a modern exhibition hall for a state art agency was built amid ancient landmarks of Krakow’s historic Old Town district, just opposite the temple-like Palace of Arts at the Szczepanski square. Owing to its gray concrete walls and bulky shape the unpopular construction has been dubbed “the bunker” before long. By the mid 1990s the contemptuous label was embraced by the exhibition hall’s managers who turned their ‘Bunker of Arts - The Contemporary Art Gallery’ into a stronghold of the avant-garde. 


Every third year the Bunker of Arts (Polish 'Bunkier Sztuki'), 3a Plac Szczepanski square at Planty Gardens, serves as the main exhibition venue for the International Print Triennial, one of the world’s biggest festivals of print arts.
