Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCAK) Tours

Housed in two light-filled, concrete-and-glass galleries in Podgórze, an up-and-coming district south of the Old Town, Krakow’s first dedicated modern-art gallery opened in spring 2011. Designed by Italian architect Claudio Nardi, the Museum of Contemporary Art (Muzeum Sztuki Współczesnej w Krakowie) stands on land formerly occupied by Oskar Schindler’s enamel factory, which was immortalized in Steven Spielberg’s movie Schindler’s List.

MOCAK’s permanent collection holds contemporary sculpture, installations, photographs and paintings from the cream of Polish and European artists including Kristof Kinter, Tymek Borowski, Krzysztof Wodiczko and Robert Kusmirowski, all exhibited in minimalist white space. The collection is still growing, with the new interactive installation Live Factory 2, based on Andy Warhol’s studio-cum-factory in New York. A constantly changing repertoire of temporary exhibitions concentrates on conceptual art from across the world and for contemporary-art devotees, MOCAK has a good selection of books in its store and a well-stocked research library.

Located on the southern edge of the Jewish ghetto constructed in the 1940s, a visit to MOCAK can be combined with a side trip to the Oskar Schindler Factory next door, now a museum dedicated to the horrors of World War II.
