The Centre for the Documentation of the Art of Tadeusz Kantor was founded in 1981. For many years it fulfilled two functions - the Cricot 2 Theatre centre and the theatre's archives. This was where the Cricot 2 Theatre team came home to from its artistic travels, and its documentation was gathered and archived here. The cellars of the Archives on ul. Kanonicza were the site of rehearsals and a gallery. Currently, one of the most important of the Cricoteka's missions is spreading knowledge about the works of Tadeusz Kantor, both in the scope of his theatrical work and in his visual art. To that end, a broad array of exhibition and publishing activities has been undertaken. The exhibitions take place in the Cricoteka’s three locations: the Gallery and Archives on ul. Kanonicza, the Gallery – Atellier on ul. Sienna, and from 2006 to 2009, in the building of the former electric plant of Podgórze. The Cricoteka works in co-operation with other institutions presenting the art of Tadeusz Kantor, providing expertise, loaning exhibits and documentary materials, and collaborating on joint exhibitions. It also organizes many academic conferences and symposiums. In 2006 an international contest was held for the development of an architectural concept for the home of the Cricoteka Centre for the Documentation of the Art of Tadeusz Kantor on ul. Nadwiślańska in Krakow, which was to result in the creation of a new Cricoteka centre, including a Tadeusz Kantor museum. The opening of the new location is planned for 2011.
