The Polish Radio Experimental Studio
Fri, July 13, 2018 7 pm CEST, Opening

The Polish Radio Experimental Studio (PRES) was founded in Warsaw in 1957. Its establishment had also symbolic value, as it became a major platform for freedom of expression within the Eastern Bloc.

The studio became an exclusive space for creative autonomy. Along with the »Warsaw Autumn International Festival of Contemporary Music«, PRES was the only platform that enabled exchange, inviting guests from the United States, Western Europe and Scandinavian countries.

The exhibition will present PRES as an institution oriented towards audio-visual experimentation, constantly looking forward. Being influenced by visual arts and happenings, artists and composers, the PRES managed to establish a new language that is open to the listener’s interpretation. 

We cordially invite you to the exhibition opening on July 13, 2018, taking place together with the opening of the exhibition »Art in Motion. 100 Masterpieces with and through Media«, at the foyer of the ZKM at 7 pm. 

Speakers at the opening: 

  • Peter Weibel, Artistic-Scientific chairman of the ZKM and Curator
  • Christiane Riedel, Chief Operating Officer of the ZKM 
  • Łukasz Strusiński, Adam Mickiewicz Institute
  • Michał Mendyk and Daniel Muzyczuk, Curators
