Krakow’s Ethnographic Museum is the location for the 2012 Illustration Research symposium. In the heart of Kazimierz district of Krakow, it is housed in two beautifully restored historic buildings. We are grateful to the museum for allowing us to use their space for the symposium and exhibition.
‘Today, the Museum endeavours to be the place where the new description of the world – bygone and contemporary, far and near – is made. The world of custom that we ourselves find to be a mirror. In other words: the museum wants to be a centre of reflection and understanding oneself and others.’
- Dr Antoni Bartosz, Director
We look forward to engaging with the museum’s collection and methodologies of thinking about folk cultures in relation to the symposium theme.
