On 13th and 14th of October, 2017 Adam Mickiewicz Institute, in cooperation with Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź, will organise an international conference devoted to the Polish Radio Experimental Studio (PRES) to mark in relation with the 60th anniversary of its founding.

The conference will take place as part of the interdisciplinary “PRES” project.  PRES was the first centre in Central-Eastern Europe to create avant-garde electroacoustic music. The legacy of the avant-garde and its contemporary interpretations are important elements of the POLSKA 100 Programme being implemented by Adam Mickiewicz Institute as part of Poland’s centenary of regaining independence. It is therefore of no surprise that the PRES project stands as one of the pillars of the POLSKA 100 Programme.

The conference will discuss the activities of the Experimental Studio of the Polish Radio in the context of centrally planned socialist economy where the state controlled the technological progress. Relationships between arts and PRES, including Oskar Hansen’s design of the working environment of the studio and Instrument – Percussion Laboratory [Instrument perkusyjny] by Krzysztof Wodiczko, will be the centrepiece of the conference.

The conference is a part of the international cultural program of the Centenary of Independence Restoration. Financed with the means of MKiDN in conjunction with the Centenary of Independence Restoration Program 2017-2021.
