Nicolas Maigret & Maria Roszkowska

FR

Nicolas Maigret exposes the internal workings of media, through an exploration of their dysfunctions, limitations or failure thresholds, based upon which he develops sensory and immersive audio visual experiences. As a curator, he initiated the DISNOVATION.ORG working group, which conducts a series of deviant strategies and symbolic activities facing the ongoing propaganda of technological innovation. Co-founder of the Art of Failure collective in 2006, he currently teaches at Parsons Paris.

Maria Roszkowska is an artist, designer and initiator of the DISNOVATION.ORG working group with Nicolas Maigret. From 2010 she conducted research with EnsadLab Paris, before joining Intégral Ruedi Baur, a cultural design studio based in Paris. She designed and coordinated Don’t Brand My Public Space!, a three-year research on the issue of cities applying branding strategies. In 2015 she co-edited The Pirate Book, an anthology on media piracy.
