Normal ticket - 35zl. Reduced price - 20zl (for students, seniors, and residents of Kraków). Reserve the entire golf cart - 180zl As part of the gentrification and touristification of Kazimierz, golf cart tours have appeared, blaring out recorded audio as they bounce around the neighbourhood. In response to these tours, which can be limited or even misleading, FestivALT has created alternative tours that address the complications, controversies, and cultural confusion of contemporary Kazimierz. You can book your tour at festivalt.com or at the Galicia Jewish Museum.
Join FestivALT and special guests for a panel about the politics of protest and urban memory as we present and discuss the history of the former prayerhouse Chevra Tehilim. Located at the corner of ul. Meiselsa and ul. Bożego Ciała, the building has undergone significant and irreversible architectural changes in recent years and currently houses the bar and restaurant Hevre. For the past two years, FestivALT has organized interventions at the bar to raise awareness of the building and encourage public debate about the treatment of sites of Jewish heritage in Kazimierz.
On Rosh Hashanah it is written, and on Yom Kippur it is sealed. How many shall pass on, how many shall come to be? On Erev Yom Kippur, a young woman talks with her great-grandmother about her Jewish family's past and future, about building a new queer family without betraying her history. She struggles between hiding in her own thoughts and coming out to the world. The piece explores what we carry from generations of family history into our relationships today. A story of queer love and the search for acceptance while dealing with the fear of embracing a life on the margins.
As part of this year’s intervention we will construct a life-sized reproduction of the destroyed wall, which will stand vigil outside the former building for the remainder of the festival. Come to show solidarity, ask questions, and learn more about the building.
Auschwitz and Auschwitz-Birkenau are the two most famous and most visited genocidal sites in the world, but they do not encompass the whole of the Auschwitz complex. Jason Francisco's photo-text-installation work examines a part of the Auschwitz story all but erased from public memory, through a deliberate misuse of the historical practice of stereoscopy.
