Bozar, in the city center, was the main venue, hosting the activities of Post-Flux 2009 – November 6, 7 and 8, 2009, Brussels.
Post-Flux is organised by the Maison des Auteurs asbl, with the support of the Commission des Arts numériques, Ministère de la Culture de la Communauté française de Belgique, as well as the Société civile des Auteurs multimédia Scam* and the Société des Auteurs Compositeurs Dramatiques SACD.
Concept & Artistic Direction: Alok b. Nandi
Digital Emergence. Digital Expectation.
Digital Friction. Digital Narrative.
The questions which will be investigated and evoked are related to the place of digital in art and in creative practice. One could say that the creative energy has moved from exploring the interface and navigating the virtual towards the articulation in the interrelations through social media ? Is there a genre called digital art ? Or is digital everywhere, hence requestioning practice and usage ? Emergence of new writings are in friction with expectations within artistic communities and by different audiences ? The evolution of technologies are pushing the boundaries of affect ? or those existing do not fulfill art praxis and artists invent their own tools ? Where do authors’ rights stand in the picture ?
Questions. Dialogues. Conversations. Frictions.
Post- because one can post a contribution and participate in the conversations.
Post- may also suggest post-digital, post-flux, … in terms of matters.
Post-Flux will mean … let’s see what emerges in November 2009. See you there.
Join the conversations with a.o.
