<nettime-ann> okno public01 festival

okno public01 festival :::  24 > 26 may 2006 ::: Brussels - Belgium


okno is interested in the creative and unpredictable innovations that stem from unruly combinations of scientific, mediatic and technologic artefacts: seeds to grow new forms of expression where old structures are crumbling...
We offer a virtual and physical public forum for reflection on technologically-inspired media arts. We tend to be a physical and online meeting place for artists, and want to facilitate a dialogue on current forms of artistic practice with a creatively engaged audience.
We want a form of media art that is digital, collaborative and networked, interactive and realtime, performative and shared, indivisible in its audio-data-visual output.
The cultural and aesthetic influences of media technologies will be critically discussed in the context of an alternative festival setup. The processes and results of artistic research will be presented in a program of round table discussions, performances, experimental concerts, interactive installations and workshops.

An important part of our activities are situated in an independent server structure and in networks of invisible relations between people and information. okno wants to share ideas and develop discourses through different but parallel platforms. We like to play with degrees of visibility, of both people and data. We want to fascilitate participation simultaneously onsite and online. Audiovisual streaming and IRC-chat moderation of the okno public week discussions and performances will encompass the mixtures found in our digitally connected existence. We would like to incorporate online participation of people working in distinct fields such as netart, social work, media art and activist practice.
