Anna Ptak

Anna Ptak (b. 1979) is a curator and art producer, with background in cultural anthropology. Since 2008 she is a curator at A-I-R Laboratory - a residency programme at the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw, Poland. In frames of A-I-R Laboratory she has worked on multiple art productions and long term interdisciplinary art projects involving research on institutional and social conditions of art making, such as Re-tooling Residencies (2010/2011; Ptak is the editor of the reader accompanying the project), Studio Warsaw (2011/12) and currently Re-Directing: East which seeks for the new communication channels between art practices in Eastern Europe, Middle East and Asia. As a curator she is mainly dealing with collaborative frameworks, she's interested in performative and collective aspects of audiovisual media.
