The Foundation for Visual Arts is a non-profit organisation established in 2001 in Krakow. Dedicated to the promotion and dissemination of visual arts in Poland, with an emphasis on photography, the Foundation has sought out new definitions of what photography is within the context of contemporary art, history, and social sciences. This mission is pursued during the Foundation’s key project — the annual Krakow Photomonth Festival. The Foundation for Visual Arts organises other cultural events, publishes books, promotes young artists and new initiatives, as well as digitalises photographic archives, including documentary photographs of Wojciech Plewiński, Zygmunt Rytka and Zofia Rydet’s Sociological Record.
