KRZYSZTOF WODICZKO- [ Traduire cette page en français ]
The «politics of the absurd» of 1970’s in Poland were probably the force behing the development of the first vehicles of Krzysztof Wodiczko (born in 1943 in Poland lives in the USA. The Vehicle, 1972, for example, was pushed forward by the artist’s own back and forth walking motion. In the late eighties, Wodiczko developed these vehicles further, this time taking into account capitalistic reality, to create a series of Homeless Vehicles. They provide this social group with a street tool that responds to basic necessities of survival economy such a living, sleeping and washing, as well as collecting and reselling cans and bottles. The artist’s intention to give marginalized groups the power of public presence and speech is manifested in design projects like Alien Staff communications aid for migrants, as well as in his latest public projections. In the Tijuana Projection, 2001, harsh personal experiences of the woman population of the border city of Tijuana were projected live in audio-visual form onto the monumental dome of El Centro Cultural building. Krzysztof Wodiczko is the head of Interrogative Design Group of Visual Arts Program at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge.
