The MA/MFA in Transdisciplinary New Media Department hosts Lunch Talks once a month. They are designed to foster knowledge, sharing, and casual conversation with designers, curators, and artists.
Lunch Talks are open to all!
This month’s guest is Joanna Wlaszyn a Polish-French interdisciplinary artist who lives and works in Paris. Her primarily digital practice, incorporating both traditional and new media, demonstrates an active engagement with the post-digital age. Through photography, video installations, digital art, hybrid drawings, and paintings, she challenges modes of perception and representation of (post)digital aesthetics.
Confronting the Post-Digital Age Wlaszyn purposefully creates hybrid artworks, combining traditional and digital techniques, in response to a constantly evolving post-digital culture. Rather than distorting reality, she attempts to create alternative interpretations. Her works fuse visual language with conceptual experiment. And even though her visual explorations contain figures that are not construed voluntarily, they offer representations that are free to interpretation, with universal narratives that are accessible to all.
Joanna Wlaszyn holds a Ph.D. in Critical Theory of Architecture from University Paris-Est and a master degree MS in New Media Art & Design from Ensci in Paris. She has published numerous scientific publications exploring the multifaceted impact of digital technologies on the disciplines of design, architecture and visual arts. Her work has been exhibited internationally including solo and group shows in New York, Korea, Greece, and France.
