Artivistic TURN ON : international transdisciplinary three-day gathering on the interPlay between art, information and activism

The world to come is so sexy.

We are unstoppable for we are fueled with an incredible urge to embrace the pleasure provided by difference, exchange and liberation. Our actions today are charged with an energy that is animated by the rise of change and a movement that is simply irresistible.

For its upcoming fourth edition, Montreal-based festival Artivistic is going sexy. From October 15 to 17, 2009, we invite participants to discuss, question, and imagine the proxemics of sexuality, technology and politics.

While keeping issues of power and control in question, we want to turn to the potency of pleasure, curiosity, humor, and desire in order to TURN*ON that which has yet to be thought and experienced differently.

prologue: Transitional Geographies / Feminist Mapping at ISEA

The Prologue Panel will take place during ISEA on: Friday, 28 August 2009 at 14:00 at the Main Hub: Waterfront Hall, Belfast, Lanyon Place.

The Prologue Surgery will take place at: Golden Thread Gallery at 14:00.

The panel [Prologue]: Transitional Geographies / Feminist Mapping explores the cultural and political impact of European enlargement on feminist art and discourse: feminist participation in the cultural, economic, technological and structural spheres of a changing Europe remains a challenge. This panel aims to map out the crucial issues of how and where feminism remains a radical innovator in art, technology and society and to make public contemporary feminist art and discourse. The panelists - media artists, theorists and sociologists - are invited to reflect on the impact of shifting European borders and interests. This is extended to how feminist work addresses these changes.
