Echoes of Wrocław – Anka Kasperska’s artist residency

Echoes of Wrocław is the title of Anka Kasperska's residence project, which takes place in June. Its aim is to look at the changes in the urban audiosphere of Wrocław on the basis of three buildings selected by the artist.

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.

As part of the artist’s residency, the following open events will take place.
