Tadeusz Kantor home page

Tadeusz Kantor (1915-1990) is one of the most significant Polish artists of the twentieth century. A painter and theatre director, Kantor was a pioneer among the artists of the 1960s avant garde in Europe. Alongside his work as a visual artist he was also a theater reformer, attaining world renown in the 1970s with the traveling theater group Cricot 2 from Krakow, Poland. Today Kantor is often cited as an inspiration by artists interested in his performative approach to contemporary art.
