VISUAL SPLITS: NEW MEDIA MATTERS
CURATORS: OLGA SHISHKO, ANDREY SHCHERBENOK
For over 10 years of its existence Pro&Contra of Media Culture International Symposium aims to discover connections between art, science, politics, economics, technologies, design and architecture. We also strive to present the most interesting works on the boundary of contemporary art and social practices, science, digital art and design, performance and software engineering, animation and media architecture.
Each year we select different topics, projects, artistic strategies and methods to be analyzed in various formats, including theoretical discussions, projects presentations, contests, screenings of festival programs, premieres, etc.
This year Pro&Contra will be focused on the theoretical discussion of new media art and new visuality as a whole. We are primarily interested in the meaning of their newness: what is the relationship between the new visuality of media art and classical visual space? What is the principle difference between new media art and avant-garde experiments? What is the effect of new media on our notion of visible evidence and how they affect our everyday perceptions?
