Info

For the last time before the summer break, we invite you for a lecture on issues and peculiarities of modern art and culture.

During the forthcoming open meeting, Paweł Janicki – media artist, interactive director and producer cooperating with WRO – will tell us about the posthuman practice as an answer for regression times, meaning limitations and repeatability of the references present in art, science and culture.

Dark ecology, cosmic pessimism, green nihilism plus optimistic and vital Russian cosmism will become the starting point for the journey towards the apocalypse through the application of thoughts and ideas of:
authors, such as Eugene Thacker, Nikolai Fyodorov, Timothy Morton;
artists, such as Keiji Haino, Theo Jansen;
weirdos, such as Theodore Kaczynski;
researchers from various fields, such as Robert Oppenheimer, Carl Sagan, Jonathan Huebner;
corporats, such as Peter Brabeck (Nestle CEO), Tony Hayward (BP),
as well as authors, artists, weirdos, researchers, corporats and aliens (though not exclusively) from the Dæd Baitz group.

 

Paweł Janicki – an independent artist, interactive director and producer working in the field of media art, microsound aesthetics and algorithmic composition, is a creator of audiovisual interactive systems, installations and performances. He creates and continuously develops software tools and interfaces. Special place in his activity takes developing software according to his own projects – and broadly – creating his own media either sabotaging already existing solutions.
