The theme of the 18th WRO Media Art Biennale in 2019 in the 30th anniversary year of WRO is the HUMAN ASPECT.

Structures of continually increasing capacities, artificial intelligence environments, power and knowledge which trigger self-propelling relationships within vast networks, lives – natural and artificial, and non-human cognitive perspectives locate the human aspect in novel contexts. In how far is the human aspect subject to technology? To what degree and from what viewpoint is the human aspect autonomous, unpredictable, faulty, creative?

WRO Biennale

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 forming a critical perspective of emerging issues in culture, art, society, technology, and humanities.

Every two years, Wrocław becomes a place of presentation for the most recent artistic practicies, combined with talks and meetings of artists and scientists with the participating audience, oscillating in variable dynamics between both contemplation and consideration, experience and confrontation.

Over the years, the WRO Biennales have raised a variety of questions about creative approaches to new technologies and the creative crossover realms that arise where art and science, economics and social activism intersect.
