Echoes of Wrocław – Anka Kasperska’s artist residency

4.06-30.06.2019

Lectures | meetings | presentation

Over the years, architectural structures change their functions by adapting to the current needs of people and the times in which they live. Architecture and its soundscape is a silent witness to urban history whose memory – metaphorically speaking – is inscribed in the walls. Echoes of Wrocław is the title of a residency project intended to examine the changes in Wrocław’s soundscape by focusing on three buildings selected by the artist, Anka Kasperska: the Oppenheim House, the House of the Ladies of Trzebnica (the Romanesque House) and the Monopol Hotel.
