WRO 2017: Draft Systems
Overheated technological development considered at all stages has proven costly to the planet; barely established synergy is getting dissociated again, democracy as "best of the systems" seems to no longer be sustainable; we accept shaky, precarious and temporary positions; while seeking personalised alliances, we commit ourselves to loyalty towards communication procedures.

How does contemporary art reflect/express/imply these processes? How does artistic practice outline this changeable position framing it in a communication form—between installation and action, concept and artistic manifestation?

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

The previous edition of the Biennale—WRO 2015: Test Exposure—was held at ten sites around the city of Wrocław: museums, galleries, department store, new building of the University Library before its opening to the public, private flat and public space, where the works of over 250 artists were shown. The exhibitions, concerts, performances, video projections, installations and conferences were attended by over 100,000 visitors.

The WRO 2015 catalogue is available both in print and online here.
