The palace arts and design journal, founded in 2011, is an essential part of the archives and archives archives in Dzs Palace, which have been damaged by a severe drought and are in need of repair.
Dzsa Palaces archives and archive manager Nastashej, who is also a senior archivist at the archives, told Al Jazeera: “The archives and archivist’s office has lost the most important archives in the world.”‘
Not the place for people who have an artistic background’DzsaPalaces is a repository for many important artefacts, from the oldest manuscript to the earliest surviving works of art.
However, it is one of the least frequented archives in Poland, with fewer than 1,000 people visiting each month.
The organisation’s director, Olaf Karpinski, told AFP news agency: “There are many more important collections in the archive.
People don’t go there for the exhibitions or for exhibitions.
It’s not the place where people who are passionate about museums and artists, who are creative and who love art, can get to know each other.”
In 2015, the archives’ website went down after the country’s energy regulator ordered that it be replaced by a website that was in line with the law.
The decision prompted many of the website’s visitors to cancel their membership, and in March this year, a large part of Dzss Palaces website was taken offline by the energy regulator.
According to Karpinsky, the website has now been back online, but only for a short period of time.
The archives have now been able to restore their website but Karpowski said that there is a lot more work to be done.
“It’s an archive in a state of disrepair,” he said.
“The archive has to be maintained and protected, but unfortunately we don’t have enough resources to do this.”‘
We need the right resources’The archives have been under pressure to repair the damage to the site, which was damaged during the recent dry weather.
Karpinks said that he is currently seeking support from the Polish Energy and Natural Resources Agency (Bęsza) and the National Council for the Protection of Arts, Culture and Heritage (KPS).
The KPS has been trying to help, but has been hindered by its own budget, which does not cover the costs of restoration work, Karpinsk said.
The archives need the funds to restore the website and also to pay the costs for staff and technical staff to install and operate the site again.
“We need to pay for everything from the internet server to electricity and electricity bills,” Karpinos said.
According the archives website, the cost of restoration has already risen to $25,000 (£14,200).
The organisation is also working to pay a contractor to install a new server.
Karpinsk is also seeking help from the government to find ways to secure funding for further restoration work.
The archive, he said, is a museum of history and culture and is a place to learn about the history of Poland, but it has lost its place in society.
“People don’t realise how important it is that we preserve our culture, our history, our civilisation, our art, and so on,” he told AFP.
“If we don´t do this, what will happen?
We will not be able to preserve our history.”
