- 14:00 - 18:00
Media Art Worlds – a conference on hybrid economies of digital art
When: Saturday March 24, 2018, from 14:00-18:00
Where: Korjaamo Culture Factory, Töölönkatu 51 B, Helsinki, Finland
The production and presentation of media art takes place in a hybrid economy involving a variety of institutional contexts – art museums, film festivals, science & technology centres, universities – as well as diverse technical and social platforms. The power of media art lies in its capacity to unsettle cultural categories through critical interventions across contexts. However this activity can also result in a precarious position for the artist, who may feel trapped between the worlds.
In this conference we hope to share expertise on how to develop projects, reach audiences and sustain practices across the many media art worlds. The conference is organised by the European Media Art Platform, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. Hosted by m-cult, the Helsinki conference is supported by FRAME and the Finnish Institute in London.
At 16:40 Arjon Dunnewind, director of Impakt, will lead the wrap-up discussion IMPAKT: Visions Relevance to society / How can we change the world / make an impact? He will build on the discussions between the EMAP artists and the partners of the project.
The event is free of charge but requires registration. Please register by Sunday March 18.
