Short introduction
>From its structures, [R] - [R] - [F] - Festival is an
experimental New Media art project in form of an online festival created,
programmed and realized by Agricola de Cologne.
Its central subject, abbreviated in the capital letters of the title, is
"Remembering, Repressing, Forgetting".
A new way of art working is practiced: networking as artworking.
Experimental fields of memory are developed by inviting curators from
different countries around the globe, eg directors of media festivals or
curators specialized in New Media, who have to select a number of artists of
their choice according the terms of the project.
The dynamic of this ongoing and continously changing project,
as it is set up for being presented in festivals and media exhibitions,
manifests itself not only in the artistic online environment, especially
created for [R] - [R] - [F] - Festival, but also progressing when for each
new presentation a new project version is created, including new subject
related aspects, new curators and new artists and new visualizations of the
connected memory fields.
Continuously expanding, these memory fields containing curators
and artists of the previous project versions will be always present in the
background while slowly a networking universe of collective memory comes up.
The project uses the Internet not only as an artistic environment,
but primarily also as a communicating medium and a data base
which is closely connected to memory and loss of memory.
