Written by Moderator on Monday, October 8, 2012 | Permalink

The WRO Media Art Biennale is the major forum for new media art in Poland, and one of the leading international art events in Central Europe. Since its inception in 1989, WRO has been presenting art forms created using new media for artistic expression and communication, exploring current creative territories and building a critical perspective toward emerging issues in art, technology and society.

The 2011 edition of the WRO Biennale, /ALTERNATIVE NOW/, was held at eleven sites around Wroc?aw—museums, galleries, cinemas, old factory halls and public space, where the works of over 200 artists were shown. The exhibitions, concerts, performances, video projections, installations and conferences were attended by 800 accredited guests and over 40,000 visitors.

*WRO 2013 /PIONEERING VALUES/ *The theme of the WRO 2013 Biennale, marking the 50th anniversary of electronic art, will be the artistic and cultural values that have emerged—and are still emerging—from new media art.

During the WRO 2013 Biennale, titled /PIONEERING VALUES/, we want to present current works that deal with the relations between new media art and the ubiquitous cultural creativity that surrounds it, taking innovative approaches to the intellectual challenges and demands of our era. WRO 2013 /PIONEERING VALUES/ will highlight new visions that allude to the past, distill the present and offer intuitive glimpses of the future.
