HERITO
Herito – a bilingual English-Polish quarterly on Central European heritage and culture – is an initiative by the International Cultural Centre. It is our hope that it will come to be a unique forum for discussions on heritage, culture, our times, and the future. As a periodical it will focus on issues of locus and related reflections, on space and its various meanings, and on the geography of the imagination and of memory. The pretext for the topics it undertakes to examine is Central Europe, which has a heritage of experience and cultural dilemmas that are at once unique and highly relevant to contemporary debate.

The exhibition of the photographer Hertha Hurnaus at the #KrobathGallery   is dedicated to the works of the architect #VladimirDedeček, which were built between 1960 and the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989. The photos, however, are not documentary in nature, but rather an homage to an era of change in the field of architecture. As the images focus on interiors and details, the buildings are only recognisable to experts. 
#HerthaHurnaus   is also the author of the cover photo of the latest issue of "Herito" devoted to #ColdWarModernArchitecture . More fantastic photos by this artist you can find inside the magazine.

Serdecznie polecamy cykl eksperckich debat i projekcje fantastycznych dokumentów.

Galicia no longer exists. It disappeared from the map of Europe in 1918 together with the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, whose province it had been. Yet, it still lives as a imagined space in the collective imagination and memory. The Krakow exhibition seeks to answer the question about the source and contemporary condition of the myth, trying to find out why literature, visual arts, and film still refer to it, while Galicia itself is used as an attractive brand. #galicia   #franzjoseph   #centraleurope
