Kronika is a centre for contemporary art located in the heart of the industrial city of Bytom, Upper Silesia. It is devoted to exploring the interconnections between contemporary art theory and activity and music, politics and social sciences, education, film, theatre, alternative tourism, design and architecture. Kronika is a place of knowledge production. The Kronika Gallery was established in 1991. In 2006, after restructuring and major refurbishment, Kronika enters a new phase of activity.
The Kronika's programme is implemented through exhibitions, public space projects, trips, experimental musical cycles, art publications, workshops, discussions, lectures and popularization of art.
A place of the utmost importance for the recently reopened institution is the meeting room, a space combining the functions of a music stage, a chill-out room, a reading room and a screening room, with it?s interior designed by a different artist every year. The character of the meeting room reflects the tactics of the institution searching for a new, flexible approach, taking advantage of the multidisciplinary opportunities available.
Moreover, Kronika coordinates mobile grants for artists and curators, who spend a few weeks in Upper Silesia, developing projects dealing with the specific character as well as current social and cultural issues of the region.
