The “9/11 Art Space” Foundation undertakes actions aimed at propagation of fine art and broadly understood culture, including preservation and popularisation of the crucial achievements in visual arts. The activities of the Foundation focuses on documenting and archiving of work of the outstanding Polish artists, as well as on publishing.
