To Be Real, the performative-musical program of the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art, examines club culture and its emancipatory potential, and explores the relationship between politics, nightlife, and contemporary art, from the queer roots of electronic dance music in the 1970s to the recent techno-protests on the streets of global metropolises. The third edition of the programme will take the form of an international techno-seminar led by dancefloor researchers and activists, and will include talks, performative lectures, and DJ sets. More about the event.

Performance Works presents the research outcomes linked to the performance program launched in 2016 at Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art in Warsaw, which examined the performative turn in visual arts and its consequences for art institutions, as well as artistic and curatorial practices. Contributors: Oreet Ashery, Pierre Bal-Blanc, Claire Bishop, Marie de Brugerolle, Yann Chateigné, Korina Giaxoglou, Michał Grzegorzek, Shannon Jackson, Eliel Jones, Chris Kraus, Laura Lima, David Maroto, Ingo Niermann, Kathy Noble, Johannes Paul Raether, Mark von Schlegell, Agnieszka Sosnowska, Ana Teixeira Pinto, Transformella, Joanna Zielińska. →  More about the book.
