Audio Art 2016 (Krakow, Poland)

Audio Art is an experimental and postmodernist art of the close of XX century and the beginning of the XXI century. Audio Art is an integration of sound and visual art. Presentation of Audio Art appears in form of the concert, performance and installation. Audio Art creates new concept of sound source: as an object and musical instrument in certain space and time. Audio Art is a “one person art”: composer, designer and performer unify the whole process of art creation. Audio Art uses low and high technology. Audio Art Festival presents individual artists from all over the world. Festival also presents other non-audio art events extending the whole image of the art based on sound.

Unsound Festival 2016 (Krakow, Poland)

Unsound announce DISLOCATION, a new theme to be explored in 2016 and 2017.

“The long and provocative tension between ‘center’ and ‘periphery’ often fuels cultural development,” says Unsound artistic director Mat Schulz. “Being based in Krakow, Poland, we know this well and have worked hard to break down such binaries. The very idea of a Polish-born festival producing prominent music events in New York, London, Toronto and Adelaide is unusual. But at a time when the world feels increasingly unstable, we want to more consciously explore all sorts of fertile peripheries in the context of geography, politics, identity, online interaction and more generally the contemporary social environment.”

DISCLOCATION will act as an anchor for Unsound Krakow’s programming across commissioned projects, music, talks and more. The theme will also drive events and activities in various locations around the world, in the effort to expand and amplify disparate networks and communities underlying the festival.

Hala Stulecia (Centennial Hall)
Wystawowa 1, 51-618 Wrocław, Poland

Last year, we were approached to create our first permanent installation for the new museum of architecture of Hala Stulecia, in Wroclaw, Poland. The piece – that we called O (Omicron), is actually the last part of the visit, and a way to create a link between the rich history of the building and the present times, by turning this massive concrete structure into a lively architecture.

When opened, Hala Stulecia was the largest reinforced concrete structure in the world. With a diameter of 65m it was home to the largest dome built since the Pantheon in Rome eighteen centuries earlier.

The Centennial Hall was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2006.

It is reasonable to think that when Hala Stulecia was built in 1913 Max Berg’s ambition for his construction was to pass the test of time. What could have been his vision of the monument in the distant future? How did he imagine the olding of the materials? The evolution of the surrounding urbanism and populations?

The piece proposed for the Centennial Hall of Wroclaw is based around the notion of timelessness in architecture, and the idea of what future has meant throughout the 20th century.

Neon Muzeum (Warsaw, Poland)

The Neon Muzeum is an indepedent museum that has become a national treasure !

The museum is dedicated to the documentation and preservation of Poland’s cold war era neon signs.

The sole Creators and Directors of the Neon Muzeum are David Hill and Ilona Karwinska. They built the foundations of the museum in 2005 with the photographic documentation project entitled ‘Polish Neon’. The preservation and renovation of the remaining cold war neon signs also began during this photographic project. Since then the museum collection has grown in size and now displays hundreds of fascinating and historically important electro-graphic symbols – the largest singular collection of neon signs anywhere in Europe.

The Neon Muzeum is permanently based in Soho Factory, Praga – the creative heart of Warsaw. During the European Museum Nights 2014 we attracted over 16,000 visitors in a single night – breaking records !
