The theme of the 13th Przemiany Festival makes us look at our physicality from various perspectives. In microbiology, a superorganism is a microcosm of multi-species relations, a constantly evolving collective. From the point of view of an individual, a superorganism is the horizon of our ambitions and hopes for a healthy, active and long life. Where will technologically assisted evolution take us? Will we become similar to cyborgs or hybrids of animals and plants? How far can we push the limits of our vitality? These are only a few questions that construct this multi-threaded tale's narration. 

The exhibition presents works by renowned Polish and foreign artists, creating their work in new media art, bio art and kinetic art. Additionally, we will demonstrate the masterpieces of Polish sports documentaries.
