Goethe-Institut Pop Up Pavillon is a specially designed glass container on Nowy Trag Square in Wrocław that has been hosting for three months a rich interdisciplinary program prepared by the Goethe-Institut Cracow as one of the events in the agenda of the European Capital of Culture – Wrocław 2016.
The Pavillon has been visited by over 50 000 viewers!
WRO Art Center was one of the partners of this undertaking focussing on a set of questions described by the following codewords: IDENTITY[IES] – time, place, culture; UTOPIA – in the search of the ideal city; Music Box – the urban instinct of play. Together with the Goethe-Institut we have prepared exhibitions of installation by Polish and German artists that we’ve chosen from more than 300 ideas coined especially for the Pavillon. Among those project were such as Digesting History by Olga Lewicka and Susanne Prinz created during the Goethe@WRO residency, an internet installation by Monika Rut and Arthur Clay A Sense Of Place, using augmented reality, a sound installation by Dorota Błaszczak The Waves of Memory with audio clips form the archives of the Polish Radio, and two installations, that were also part of the Eco Expanded City project – Big Printer by the Berlin-based group schnellebuntebilder and Music Construction Machine by Niklas Roy, who made his debut in Wroclaw during the WRO Media Art Biennale in 2005.
