'Crime in Art' exhibition

Couple days ago Jane Febray and I visited MOCAK (which is a museum of contemporary art in Kraków) to see the new crime themed exhibition. Some parts of it were really shocking and according to the warning on the entrance they were only for adult visitors. Some exhibits were also very moving. for example the installation with authentic letters from prisoners telling us about their life, dreams or things they regret. There were also some weird but quite funny stories from those prisoners who just don't care about anything or anyone anymore. We were both surprised about how talented  were some of the inmates. Some of letters contained poems and a few really good drawings. I also remeber another piece of art proving that there is no visible difference between a murderer and a victim. The author put together photos of representatives of those two groups and let us guess their history. It made me realise that after seeing all those criminals portaits I assumed they all look like murderers (even if they seem completely innocently).
So... if you are in Kraków and you want to see something unusual go to MOCAK and I'm sure you won't be dissapointed :-)

P.S. Don't forget to check out the permanent exibition! One ticket is an entrance to all current exhibitions  so it won't cost you any extra money. Besides, I think it's also worth visting. See you there!
