Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, the WRO 2019 Media Art Biennale is devoted to exploring the CZYNNIK LUDZKI / HUMAN ASPECT.
On its 30th anniversary, Poland’s largest show of international contemporary art, which commenced as the International Sound Basis Visual Art Festival in 1989 and has explored the development of communication tools ever since, offers a critical scrutiny of processes unfolding in culture, communication, and society by examining the HUMAN ASPECT from a post-technological perspective.
From mid-May till the end of 2019, a series of WRO events will explore the complexity of the current relations between the human and the technological, with the human as an initiator, a recipient, and sometimes a victim of these mutating interplays.
The Biennale will feature special invitation projects and a varied set of works selected from among more than 1,700 submissions from across the world. Around 100 works will explore the complexities inherent in the current relations between the human and the technological, with the human as an initiator, a recipient and, sometimes, a victim of these mutating interplays.
