14TH MEDIA ART BIENNALE
WRO 2011 ALTERNATIVE NOW
Call for works
The WRO Media Art Biennale is the leading international forum for new media art in Poland and 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 and society.
Over the years, the WRO Biennales have raised a variety of questionsabout creative approaches to new technologies and the expanding technosphere of
social media – about the creative crossover realms that arise where art and science, economics and social activism intersect.
The theme of the 14th WRO Biennale, which starts on May 10th 2011, is ALTERNATIVE NOW, highlighting the roles of individual artistic stances and strategies that keep a deliberate distance from the institutionalized mechanisms and standardized expectations of the art world.
Submissions must be postmarked no later than January 5th, 2011.
