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.
FestivALT’s performance project, Lucky Jews, is a satirical response to the “Jew with a coin” paintings that are sold in Poland. Join the FestivALT directors, who themselves do not all agree, as they share the project and welcome you into a debate about the problems and merits of the work. A performance of Lucky Jews will be given prior to the panel from 10:30 to 13:00 in Plac Nowy.
Join FestivALT and MEK Director Antoni Bartosz for a candid conversation about the museum’s collection of objects related to Jews and the museum’s responsibility to represent Poland’s multiethnic history in general. What should be expected of an institution that uses the slogan “My museum, a museum about me”? On this day you can visit the Museum for free - just say “FestivALT” at the counter.

Women on Women is an evening of sharp, often irreverent, participatory performances that question fixed understandings of Jewishness and gender, religion and sexuality through a female lens. This year’s edition features Warsaw-based painter Marta Malinowska, New Orleans-based burlesque artist, Angie G, and Krakow-based furrier Marta Horowitz. The evening is hosted by the famous burlesque artist Betty Q and will revolve around themes of games and play.
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.
