The WRO Media Art Biennale is the major forum for new media art in Poland, and one of the leading international art events in 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, technology and society.
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.
The previous edition of the WRO Biennale (the 14th, entitled ALTERNATIVE NOW) was held in 2011. Its main theme was the role of individual artistic stances and strategies in relation to the institutionalized mechanisms and standardized expectations of the art world. The WRO 2011 Biennale was held at eleven sites around Wrocław – museums, galleries, cinemas, old factory halls and public space, where the works of over 200 artists were shown. The exhibitions, concerts, performances, video projections, installations and conferences were attended by 800 accredited guests and over 40,000 visitors.
A travelling "summary" of the WRO 2011 Biennale – an exhibition entitled Resumé/Alternative Now on Tour – was shown in art centers in Poland, Bielorussia, France, Germany, Latvia, Romania, Spain and Switzerland.
