ABOUT WRO 2017
The WRO Media Art Biennale is the major forum for new media art in Poland, and one of the leading international art events in Europe, presenting the latest works of artists from all over the world.
The DRAFT SYSTEMS as the leitmotif of this year’s edition of the WRO 2017 Biennale refers to the variability, complexity and instability of the systems arranging the world, emphasizing their changeable nature and the influence they have on the unceasing reorganization of reality.
The exhibitions, presentations, problem sessions, performances and concerts, together with the WRO on Tour program, problematize versatile issues in which art seizes variable conditions, revealing to what extent contemporary art reflect/express/drifts apart from these processes somewhere between draft and action, or concept and manifestation.
