REVERSO – inversion and conversion. Exiting the gallery and entering the studio, as well as the open air and city space as an art scene. The launch of various paths of contact between viewers and participants includes a programme of multi-month presentations, taking place both in real exhibition spaces in Wrocław and in galleries and exhibition halls in other locations (REVERSO REDUX programme).

External and internal artistic interventions and activities, comprehensive access to contemporary art and its dissemination on various platforms combining reality and the digital. Searching for a qualitative path in art and redefinition of development in opposition to the idea of building meaning through continuous growth. Exhibitions, shows, connections. The international voice of artists and its perception as a material of a long series of events adapting to new, non-obvious, complex conditions of presenting contemporary art. Activism, critical reflection and imagination in artistic practice and communication. Consumption analysis, reused materials, items and states recovered as an art form.

Exhibitions and shows are to combine the sphere of artistic communication in physical space with remote presentation via the web.

New questions – how to overcome the limits of digitization of culture, extracting what is most valuable within it, without making the viewer a consumer of network content? How to maintain the attention of the viewer, deprived of community experience and saturated with network stimuli?

The WRO Biennale programme is a search for answers.
