*CALL OUTLINE

The festival »CODED CULTURES – Exploring Creative Emergences«  
addresses questions regarding
the codes of creative cultures and artistic practices, which are based  
on new transdisciplinary and
hybrid developments of culture and art under the conditions of a post- 
contemporary digital media-age
and transformations of related artistic developments. Therefore, the  
festival creates a surrounding in
which new ways of emerging arts, creativity, theories, projects and  
ideas can be explored in the field
of digital media related forms of creative delineation and arts. The  
particular aim is to present, discuss
and criticize topics, which are situated on the intersection of  
disciplines and activities in order to enforce
new potentials of artistic practices and positions. By these means,  
persons from the field of digital media
related art and culture, who derive joy from discovering ways to  
circumvent limitations are welcome to
submit their works, projects, theories and ideas. Regarding this,  
CODED CULTURES is mainly searching
for projects, which shape new vectors of creation and art, situated  
between: e.g. Science & Art,
Technology & Art, Design & Art, Fashion & Art, Economy & Art, a.s.o.

ABOUT CODED CULTURES - Exploring Creative Emergences

The second edition of CODED CULTURES is a binational festival (Austria  
– Japan) in the year 2009
to explore new artistic practices and creative ability profiles within  
media integrated project-cultures
and digital media related art, focusing on Japan and Europe.

Through the establishment of new creative cultures, enabled by digital  
media and global communication
networks, new practices and ability profiles for creative and artistic  
delineation and exploration are gaining
new grounds. Furthermore, synergies of symbolic values of cultural and  
economic programs dealing with
the potentials of »creativity« can be observed. At the moment these  
profiles are roughly subsumed
(e.g. as »creative class«), but at the present day it is still  
difficult to predict which catalysts and draft programs
will be put into effect for creative innovation processes or artistic  
entrepreneurship. This global phenomena,
which is being set up via nodes of creativity (e.g. networks,  
communities, organizations, projects, etc.) is
becoming more and more uprooted from disciplinary guidelines and  
permitted structures of local traditions.
Therefore, new ways of cooperation and development of socio-cultural  
production paradigms have been introduced.

In this context »new« things happen based on cultural conditions of  
transformation, which have departed from
the usual mechanisms of production and distribution and create an  
innovation-fabric, which does not yet have
any adequate surface for the presentation of the observation and  
mediation of such transformation processes.
The concept of »CODED CULTURES – Exploring Creative Emergences«  
presents artistic-creative production
mechanisms, which are based on digitally linked media-cultural  
organizations, and actively integrate these into
the delineation process of their innovational operating level.  
Thereby, new options of coherence emerge on the
further development of the parameters of art / culture / economics /  
knowledge development / idea aggregation /
intermediation / participation, for digital communication and media  
technologies, as well as their conditions of
participation, are being integrated.

Therefore, the festival creates a surrounding in which new ways of  
emerging arts, creativity, theories, projects
and ideas can be explored in the field of digital media related forms  
of creative delineation and arts. The particular
aim is to present, discuss and criticize topics, which are situated on  
the intersection of disciplines and activities in
order to enforce new potentials of artistic practices and positions.  
By these means, persons from the field of digital
media related art and culture, who derive joy from discovering ways to  
circumvent limitations, are welcome to
submit their works, projects, theories and ideas. Regarding this,  
CODED CULTURES is mainly searching for
projects, which are shaping new vectors of creation and art situated  
between:
e.g. Science & Art, Technology & Art, Design & Art, Fashion & Art,  
Economy & Art, a.s.o.
