Urban Academy: Images from the End of the World

online / May 27, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Conversation in Polish.

Livestram will be available on Facebook on Barbara and WRO Media Art Biennale pages.

What would the world look like without communities as we know them? What would the world look like if people, or maybe only their avatars, lived only in virtual spaces? Whose world would it be? The participants of the last Urban Academy this semester, thanks to the cooperation with Biennale WRO 2021: REVERSO, will look for answers to these questions in art, specifically in videoart. They will talk about new forms of community, non-obvious spaces of existence and coexistence, as well as spaces of absence. The meeting will consist of two parts: presentation of video works with commentary and discussion.

Participants: Sylwia Krasoń (Contemporary Lynx), Laura Grudniewska (Soft Poachers)
Moderation: Joanna Panciuchin (Cultural Zone Wrocław)

Below you will find descriptions of the video works that will be discussed during the meeting:
