More than 130 artists from 26 countries have joined the “Art in a Postcard” project. They share their creative techniques and years of experience, but they share one theme – the popularization of Stanislaw Lim’s work and his relationship with Krakow. The exhibition “Luna Eventually Mars”, which presents postcards sent, can be seen in Krakow from 17 December. This event is held under the auspices of Science. I love that.
Art on a postcard
Mail Art exhibitions organized around the world have inspired Polish artists to originally celebrate Stanisław Lem’s birthday. Their project resonated widely. More than 130 authors proposed the proposal, submitting a total of more than 400 works. Age or skill does not matter. Unusual postcards were made only by hand and by any technology.The main idea of the project was to promote Stanisław Lim’s work and his relationshipWith Krakow, so the works had to indicate the artist’s work.
–Together with our friends, we wanted to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Stanisław Lim’s birth. We drew our ideas from other Mail Art fairs around the world – says Ewa Kruchkowska Kroll, organizer of the exhibition.
It’s time to show business to a wide audience
The task of the developers was simple. Everyone had to think about the multilayered background of Stanisław Lim’s work and how it was and continues to be interpreted by the world of science, art andphilosophy. Space exploration of Mars has also become a very important component of the project. It is worth seeing for yourself how different the interpretation of this topic is. The first exhibition of works submitted to the project begins on December 17 in Krakow. The authors are, among others, from India, Macedonia, Bali, Venezuela, Great Britain, Poland and Germany.
–We were surprised by how accessible this information was. The response was really great. Many artists from different cultures and parts of the world responded. I had the pleasure to open all these parcels. The project allowed us to meet many interesting creators Adds Jolanta Kuśmierska, creator and curator of the online exhibition.

However, the gallery remains open to those who wish to see works inspired by the work of Stanislaw Lim. The organizers hope to be able to stage a grand finale. The exhibition will also be shown in several other Polish cities.
– We are planning to set up a stationery exhibition in several places. We will move around Krakow, among others to Będzin and Niepołomice. Now, due to epidemiological restrictions, we cannot organize a real vernissage. Hopefully it’s possible in one of these places – Kristina Malinovska, curator of the constant exhibition, recalls.
