Tadeusz KantorBorn April 6 1915, Wielopole Skrzyńskie
Died December 8 1990, Kraków
The absolute artist, universal performer, director, stage designer, author of happenings, actor, writer, painter and art theorist Tadeusz Kantor was once named as the best artist in the world among polish artists and the most polish artist among artists from the whole world. Kantor had tied himself firmly to the native land, Wielopole where he was born and Krakow where he worked. But his provincial madness goes far beyond the polish cultural and linguistic context, to whose isolation he intensely opposed.
