Darek Fortas - Official Website


Between 2011 and 2013 Darek Fortas made multiple trips to the largest coal mine complex in the European Union located in the Upper Silesia, Poland in order to expand his previous body of work ‘Coal Story’.  

Fortas‘ new project, by offering a typological classification of miners’ changing rooms, aims to draw attention to the cultural and socio-political dimension of industrial architecture - with particular emphasis on the history of the communist resistance movement in 1980s that resulted in major socio-political transformation in Central and Eastern Europe after 1989.
