Paulina Trzeciak is a visual artist and designer with a wide range of artistic practices. In 2022 she graduated from the Graphic Design department at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. She got awarded the Young Talent Award for her graduation video installation by a cultural institution Stroom in The Hague, Netherlands. Before starting art studies in 2017 she received a bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts at the University of Warsaw. Her thesis examined the commodification of art and degradation of engaged and critical strategies in the perspective of choreography and performance art. Paulina’s practice is highly influenced by her academic background, as seen in her frequent incorporation of social theories and political perspectives. In the field of design, her main interests are artistic research, moving image, storytelling and art curation. She is equally fascinated by the use of fictional elements in design. She believes in its power to explore possible futures by creating speculative and alternative scenarios, shaping the complexity of the social-political landscape. Her artistic practice is highly multidisciplinary combining various disciplines together, think visual art and moving image alongside sound design & music. She co-creates Oramics, a Polish music platform which supports women, non-binary and queer people in the electronic music scene in Poland and Eastern Europe. Paulina is also active in the field of music industry, performing under the DJ moniker dogheadsurigeri. She also occasionally curates music events focusing on experimental club sounds and underground music communities. In July and August 2020 she took part in an artist residency at the Center for Contemporary Art in Warsaw which explored the connections between art and rave culture. In January 2021 she participated in the CTM 2021 Discourse discussion ‘Affective States of Exception’ on solidarity practices. Together with a Polish feminist scholar Ewa Majewska she is currently working on a publication about rage and empathy in the context of club scene and politics in Poland.
