Today, technological and scientific knowledge is used in such complex and comprehensive ways that more often than not it is held within networks and collectives. Therefore we find the contemporary version of the Renaissance man within these collectives. Together they explore and push the boundaries for technology, science through art.
At Alt_Cph 14 you will find interdisciplinary projects where scientists and artists lead technology in new directions through play, poetics and esthetic explorations with a specific focus on machines, bio art, games and other works based in the physical realm.
A large number of workshops, performances, discussions, games and cooperations will create an atmosphere of an overall living organism where ideas, techniques and strategies are shared with participants and the audience. There will also be held a free seminar in cooperation with the Danish IT University on interdisciplinary artistic practice (see the programme for more info).
This is the ninth Alt_Cph and as always the fair focuses on artist groups and artist run spaces that create possibilties for each other. The fair is presented by The Factory for Art and Design – a professional production and knowledge center with a residency programme and where more than 80 artists and designers work. It is created in cooperation with the IT University of Copenhagen and held as part of Copenhagen Art Week.
Looking forward to a weekend full of learning, sharing and playing with you!
