The Centre for Artistic Research is a permanent conference spread over time. It focuses on research and analysis of various aspects of the Wrocław ‘70 Visual Arts Symposium and takes place both within the space of the New Normativity. Wrocław ’70 Visual Arts Symposium exhibition and outside the walls of Wrocław Contemporary Museum.

The name refers to the conception of the Centre for Artistic Research, whose programme was announced by Jerzy Ludwiński during the Symposium. As Ludwiński saw it, the CAR was supposed to combine research functions with stimulating artistic activities; it was conceived as an institution in process, reflecting the constant changeability of current art.

We invite you to participate in debates, meetings, concerts and lectures prepared by artists, musicians, curators, researchers and members of the Symposium Wrocław 70/20 group.
