curator Kasia Wozniak

are happy to present the IMMEDIATE ART project:

>>IMMEDIATE ART<< project concerns wide range of phenomena that deal
the modern mutual relationships between arts and new technologies. Our
is to build a panorama of these artistic phenomena and offer an event 
dealing with these issues in an integral form and wide thematic scope.

>>IMMEDIATE ART<< is a series of lectures given by the eminent 
theoreticians. In parallel to the above mentioned lectures, the invited

artists will present their works, discuss the interconnectedness of art
technology and will talk about their art from the point of view of the

latest technological changes. We are deeply convinced that these two 
complementary cycles will provide the public with an in-depth panorama
the fascinating phenomena in the body of New Media Art.
