Museum of Photography in Krakow – MuFo Rakowicka

  ul. Rakowicka 22A      (+48) 602 63 85 60     21 Sep 2022
A portmanteau of Muzeum Fotografii (ENG: Museum of Photography), Kraków's MuFo is the only museum institution in Poland devoted entirely to the photographic medium! The institution speaks at great length about their mission, which is to care for the cultural heritage entrusted to it, as well as making clear the role of the past and memory in contemporary society. In addition, MuFo intends to be a modern institution, with lively meetings and an exchange of views on contemporary problems of visuality and cultural canons already taking place.

The collection of works at MuFo aim to encapsulate the idea of photography as a cultural phenomenon, significantly defining the history of science, media, practices related to commemoration and documentation of the past, propaganda, advertising, and, of course, art. To some degree, the institution acknowledges that the idea of the photographic medium also stretches into areas that touch on the idea of the 'image' more broadly, to which they spout an 'original concept' of the museum based on the principle of friendliness to the viewer and openness to their individual perspective.
