Following the exhibition ci_nos in winter 2015 infected structures gives a further insight into the aims of research at the sound_art_lab at the Department of DIGITAL ART, where strategies from time based art like sound are transformed into the field of media and digital art.
infected structures takes place at a historical complex of buildings in Sokołowsko, Poland: Dr. Brehmer´s Sanatorium was established 1855 as a worldwide pioneering facility for the treatment of tuberculosis. Today the sanatorium, whose premises had been bought by the In Situ Contemporary Art Foundation in 2007, is a host to the International Cultural Laboratory. By intervening into the neo-gothic mould, the eleven site-specific works presented pose questions as to the history of the place and its current shape.
The exhibition is a specific complement to residential visits of international artists in Sokołowsko as part of a celebration of the European Cultural Capital Wrocław 2016. It is accompanied by an exhibition booklet.
