The Division of Tadeusz Kantor’s Archive and Library Collection

The archive is the oldest part of Cricoteka; it has remained in operation from its foundation in 1980. Tadeusz Kantor’s intentions were for the Cricot 2 Theatre Archive to serve as a ‘MUSEUM AND ACADEMIC INSTITUTE’, thus providing a symbolic core of Cricoteka’s functioning. It is a repository of memory of the institution safeguarding a variety items linked to Kantor’s entire oeuvre. The archive initiates and supports activities aimed at keeping Kantor’s heritage alive in the current flow of ideas; it responds to academic inquiries and provides assistance in terms of archive research.

The Archive Reading Room is available Monday through Friday, 8.00 a.m.–4 p.m.
