Today, instead of talking about successive version of culture, we will assume that it is simply in the beta stage, a state of permanent flux, continuously unready to be absorbed in a single form. We want to stay abreast of technological advances, but we are mostly interested in the way they shape artistic and social life – opening up new avenues of communication and expanding our experiences.
The NInA Archives consist of thousands of analog and digital media holding important masterpieces of Polish culture, including films by Krzysztof Kieślowski, theater plays by Krystian Lupa, and Krzysztof Penderecki’s concerts.
A high-tech multifunction auditorium ready for 4K screenings, concerts, and theatre plays, a mediatheque with a rich collection of unique audiovisual materials, a plethora of workshops and classes for both children and senior citizens, and Café Gorączka (the Fever Café) — all of it and more now available to visitors at the newly renovated headquarters of the National Audiovisual Institute (NInA), the most cutting-edge audiovisual arts center that has recently opened its doors in Warsaw.
Take part in a new, annual celebration of audiovisual culture! Its first edition will be dedicated to digital storytelling, emerging narrative strategies and archives seen from a different, very personal point of view. Apart from live music shows, film screenings, debates and media workshops for creatives, there will be an exhibition of interactive installations and webdocs, as well as a local art project and an audiovisual picnic.
