2nd International Sound Basis Visual Art Festival
1990, December 5th – 9th
WRO 90 took place in two museums and the hall of Wroclaw Philharmonic. Interactive installations have been presented for the first time in Poland and have used the spaces provided by the National Museum and the Museum of Architecture.
The closing concerts and performances of the festival have taken place in the Wroclaw Philharmonics and had reintroduced that space to young, alternative audience, which had caught the attention of the media, even resulting in a publication of an analysis of their outfits by a fashion section of a newspaper.
The first graphic design and animation workshops for television professionals have taken place in BWA Mały Salon Gallery (currently known as Design Gallery BWA Wroclaw). A long queue of interested participants formed along Świdnicka street every afternoon, when the gallery was about to be opened. Inside the gallery one could have not only seen the artists working on their projects but the graphic stations and powerful computers – equipment of power beyond the available to the Polish market back then – that had been brought from Berlin as well.
