Krzysztof Wodiczko

Krzysztof Wodiczko is Professor in Residence of Art, Design and the Public Domain at the GSD. He is renowned for his large-scale slide and video projections on architectural facades and monuments. He has realized more than eighty such public projections in Australia, Austria, Canada, England, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, and the United States. Since the late 1980s, his projections have involved the active participation of marginalized and estranged city residents. Simultaneously, he has been designing and implementing a series of nomadic instruments and vehicles with homeless, immigrant, and war veteran operators for their survival and communication.

Since 1985, he has held many major retrospectives at institutions all over the world and his work has been exhibited in many major international art festivals and exhibitions. Wodiczko is the recipient of several awards, including the Hiroshima Prize in 1998 for his contribution as an artist to world peace.
