Marian Kaiser has been elected as the curator-in-residence within the framework of the AIR Wro, a program of residencies, study visits and international cooperations, organised by the Culture Zone Wrocław. During his stay, Kaiser is working with the WRO Archive, searching for political fictions and imaginations of possible futures within media works developed in the last 30 years. His research will be based on the WRO Collection as a part of the 30th anniversary of the WRO Biennale, dealing with the breakthrough of the year 1989 as a starting point to focus on the possible worlds and the future impact of new technologies “encapsulated” in artistic practices.
Presentation of the research results of the residency project will take a place on 29 May 2018 at noon in the WRO Art Center.
