transRobota - Baltic Biennial of Contemporary Art

Hubert Czerepok

transRobota is an international art project, taking place as the VII. Biennial of Contemporary Art in Szczecin on a semi-island called Lasztownia in the harbour of Szczecin. This partly derelict industrial area undergoing huge transformations is located on the right hand side of the river Oder, vis-a-vis the city center.

transRobota is an artificial word composed of trans (latin: beyond) and robota, from Eng. translation of 1920 play "R.U.R." ("Rossum's Universal Robots"), by Karel Čapek (1890-1938), from Czech robotnik "slave," from robota "forced labor, drudgery," from robotiti "to work, drudge," from Old Church Slavonic rabota "servitude".

transRobota is a site-specific art project reacting in times of apparent global transformation to the social, economic and physical space of the Szczecin harbour. The project will feature contemporary art works especially conceived and designed for this location.

Companies functioning on the premises as well as the (post)-industrial area itself constitute an integral part of the exhibition project. Starting and reference point for artists' reactions, comments or interventions is the variety of still existing workspaces. Actual production processes, workshops and labour environments will become part of the project
