About conditional arts (on the occasion of the “TeToKi” installation)
Paweł Janicki

The “TeToKi!” installation as a thinking app in the formula of conditional arts. “Conditional arts” is a cross-cutting and inclusive term, freeing you from thinking in the category of a specific medium, manifesto, or aesthetics, and directing towards conditional relations, simplicity and art understood as a group of intersecting diverse practices.

Paweł Janicki – author of the TeToKi! installation, artist, interaction director and producer, working with microsound aesthetics and algorithmic composition. Author of interactive, audiovisual systems, installations and performances, developing new software tools and interfaces.

The joy of listening
Robert Losiak from the Soundscape Research Studio

Selfless listening to the sounds of the surroundings is practically forgotten in contemporary culture, so it is worth looking at its values: the aesthetic and the ludic one. Referring to the idea of deep listening, developed by R. Murray Schafer, Hildegard Westerkamp and Pauline Oliveros, we’ll try to develop our sensitivity and auditory imagination and immerse ourselves in the world of sounds around us.

Robert Losiak, PhD – musicologist, lecturer at the Institute of Musicology, University of Wrocław. Founder of the Soundscape Research Studio. Author of scientific articles devoted to the issues of audio spheres, with particular emphasis on the city’s soundscape.

Black on white: An achromatic history of art
Dagmara Domagała

Colour as a substance of an artwork. We’ll take a look at the history of colour in art, and explore the tropes of black, b/w and white artistic realisations. Why did the artists decide to turn the multicolored palettes down? What was the suprematist revolution? And what does Coco Chanel have to do with all this?

Dagmara Domagała – graduate of cultural studies; art critic, art mediator and art guide. Her main focus is researching, elaborating and disseminating analogue and digital collections of the WRO Archive.
