Artist talks at Ars Electronica
Location: IMPAKT main programme online
This web project is available during the entire Ars Electronica Festival.
Artists from the Abducting Europa exhibition will discuss their work in a series of artists talks, live and pre-recorded. With Clusterduck (IT, DE, FR), Simon Denny (NZ/DE), Andy King (GB), Szabolcs KissPál (HU), Annika Larsson (SE/DE), Dorine van Meel (NL/DE) and Liliana Piskorska (PL).
The political imaginary of Europe today is full of metaphors of struggle. Intentionally out of step with the times, new movements dream of national rebirth by promoting ancient myths. Paradoxically some of these reactionary movements feel most at home online — with memes and flamewars — on platforms where conspiracy theories and radicalisation take root. Abducting Europa explores elements of fringe internet culture, (post)national symbolism and various altered states of historical consciousness.
Live artist talks:
Wednesday 09 September 19:00 – 20:00
Livestream on the website of Ars Electronica.
