Karolina Balcer, born in 1988, lives and works in Wroclaw, Poland. She is active in various fields, including painting, video and installations in public spaces. She is particularly interested in architecture as a tool of organizing social life. Balcer is co-organizer and resident of the Wykwit gallery. She is a member of the Board of Directors of Wykwitex.

Karolina Balcer and Iwona Ogrodzka work in the field of new media art, installation and painting. They are members of the Managing Board of Wykwitex. Working in a duet, a collective, or simply by surrounding yourself with a group of friendly people can result in many more opportunities than working solo.
