What's On This Weekend // Events In Krakow // 24th & 25th November 2018
"What are you doing this weekend?"
Without fail, you will be asked this question every single Friday by co-workers, friends, children (we even ask ourselves)... but the answer often eludes us and we reply with a resounding "ummmmmmm", finger resting limply on our stupid planless chins.
When you are in a city as vibrant and active as Krakow, with a new festival or market every week, exhibitions on every corner and concerts next door, there's no reason we should be left umming and ahhing about how we're going to fill our mini-holiday-fun-space-time.
With so much going on, it can even be overwhelming - the fear of missing out on something better leaves us in a procrastinatory paralysis. We feel your pain, so, we have done the research for you.
Here is our list of the best stuff happening this weekend in music, art, fun, culture, food & more. Now, get out there and have yourself an adventure!

"At the end of the fifties, the first experiments of concrete and electronic music were presented in the private spheres of Hungarian underground communities. The trends of the musical avant-garde emerged outside of the institutional framework, although the main figure and representative of the new music (composer and radiologist Dr. László Végh) acted in the grey zone of the contemporary culture and politics. „The double agent” of the neo-avant-garde – as defined by one of the initiators of the first Hungarian Happening – simultaneously served for the secret police and the circles of youth subculture and progressive art in Budapest. His ambiguous and double-faced position involved his defining role in the emerging actionism from the inspiration of the experimental music. This lecture will examine the interference of avant-garde music and actionism, the ethical paradoxes of different artistic generations, and not the least the layers of subversive myths in the sixties and seventies.

We need more positive incentives in gray and gloomy autumn. That is why in November we will play the classics twice! Cheder invites to a concert from the series "Classics at noon". On Sunday at 12:00, we play intimate and classical. Without the pomp of sterile concert halls, no distance between the big stage and the audience, no elegant outfits, no unnecessary inflection. We return to the source of chamber music, created with small private spaces in mind. Come alone, with family, friends and over coffee, tea or wine, listen to great classical music. Every month, other composers, other musical epochs and artists.
When: 12 pm to 1 pm
How Much: Free
"Audio Art is an experimental and postmodernist art of the close of XX century and the beginning of the XXI century. Audio Art is an integration of sound and visual art. Presentation of Audio Art appears in form of the concert, performance and installation. Audio Art creates new concept of sound source: as an object and musical instrument in certain space and time. Audio Art is a "one person art": composer, designer and performer unify the whole process of art creation. Audio Art uses low and high technology. Audio Art Festival presents individual artists from all over the world. Festival also presents other non-audio art events extending the whole image of the art based on sound."

“Don’t need you” is a documentary film that tells the story of the origins of Riot Grrrl in the American independent music scene of the 1990s, and how this feminist movement evolved into a revolutionary underground network of education and self-awareness through music, writing, activism, and women-friendly community.
The film gives audiences a chance to meet key figures in the development of Riot Grrrl and see for themselves how these women have changed the history of music and feminism forever. The film features one-on-one interviews interspersed with rare, archival materials, including original Riot Grrrl fanzines, flyers, and photographs, as well as seldom seen footage from pioneering Riot Grrrl bands like Bikini Kill, Heavens to Betsy, and Bratmobile."
PLUS: Join the Girls to the front Zine workshop from 1-4pm earlier that day.
As seen in questionable bars and basements around Europe. Zackarias Branzell is born in the great white north of Sweden, 100 miles away from the closest comedy club. Mastering the art of Elk and Reindeer based comedy (there is a lot of misplaced mating calls involved), before trying his hand on humans.
