WRO Biennale 2019

On its 30th anniversary, the WRO Biennale, 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 CZYNNIK LUDZKI / HUMAN ASPECT in a post-technological perspective.


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.

Among the invited guests there are also artists from Denmark:

Alex Mørch, born in 1987 is a transdisciplinary composer and artist. His works are typically a mixture of homebrewn machinery in spatial installations, involving human interaction. They are an exploration of the music and life that hides in the machinery, especially when pushed to its limits and connected in inexpedient ways. The compositions reflect a fascination for chaos and randomness contra synchronicity.

  • Installation, I[X] III, Four Domes Pavilion


Anders Visti is a visual artist working with code. Founder and co-editor of the publishing house * [asterisk] from 2002-12. Founder and editor of the printed web publication ‡ DobbeltDagger and initiator of !=null, a public forum for artists, researchers, developers and hackers using contemporary technology for creative expression and aesthetic inquiry.


Winnie Soon is an artist-researcher based in Denmark examining the cultural implications of technologies in which computational processes and infrastructure underwrite our experiences, which are ever more programmed. Her works explore themes/concepts around computational culture, specifically concerning internet censorship, data circulation, real-time processing/liveness and the culture of code practice.


The festival program also includes a panel discussion STOP MAKING SENSE in which Geoff Cox, Winnie Soon and Anders Wisti will participate.
