O Festival

O Festival Pós-Ecrã 2014 é um Festival Internacional de Arte, Novos Media e Ciberulturas e será a primeira edição de várias reuniões internacionais relacionadas com a utilização de ecrãs e o seu impacto no pensamento contemporâneo. O Festival é organizado pela secção de Ciberarte do Centro de Investigação e Estudos Belas Artes (CIEBA) e realizado anualmente na Faculdade de Belas Artes da Universidade de Lisboa (FBAUL).

O Festival tem como objectivo reunir um conjunto de especialistas em diversos campos de investigação e da prática artística e com isso promover a discussão interdisciplinar e mostra de produções criativas sobre questões emergentes em torno de múltiplas formas de práticas do ecrã, considerando a sua evolução ao longo da história, a circunstância em que foi utilizado, a linguagem estética e tecnológica que lhe é inerente, partindo sempre do contexto artístico, social, cultural e tecnológico.

A edição de 2014 será subordinado ao tema geral Dispositivo, Medium e Conceito, sobre o qual se pretende discutir as especificidades destes aspectos e as suas intersecções no âmbito da arte, da tecnologia e dos comportamentos sociais mediados por ecrãs.

O evento terá uma componente teórica, prática e formativa, apresentando-se através de um ciclo de conferências, uma mostra de trabalhos artísticos numa galeria virtual e workshops através dos quais se possibilita o acesso a formação sobre novas práticas artísticas e processos criativos com recurso aos novos media.

Ciclo de Conferências

O ciclo de conferências tem como objectivo a apresentação e discussão de temas atinentes à relação entre o universo da arte e o universo das tecnologias digitais e virtuais baseadas em ecrãs propostos por diversos autores, tendo lugar nas instalações da Faculdade de Belas Artes da Universidade de Lisboa.

Exposição colectiva - Galeria Virtual

O Festival Pós-Ecrã 2014 irá incluir uma mostra de trabalhos artísticos cujo espaço expositivo será uma galeria virtual acessível online através do site oficial do evento. Esta exposição colectiva irá apresentar um conjunto de trabalhos artísticos que se destaquem no âmbito do vídeo, da fotografia, da ciberarte, de instalações digitais, dança, música, e outras formas de expressão artística que utilizem a tecnologia, o ciberespeço e os ecrãs.

Workshops

Estas formações serão destinadas ao público em geral, sobretudo aqueles que tenham interesse em adquirir conhecimentos-base ou aprofundar competências técnicas de acordo com o nível de ensino dos conteúdos programáticos desenvolvidos pelos formadores. Os workshops serão ministrados durante a semana do Festival nas instalações da FBAUL.

  • Margaret Morse (to be confirmed) — University of California, Santa Cruz, USA

    Margaret Morse received her Ph.D. from the University of California Berkeley and also studied and did research at various times at the  FU and HU  in Berlin.  Her specialties include the history and theory of media, from film and television, video and video installation art to digital art and new media.  She has addressed the topic of the screen in her book, Virtualities: Television, Media Art and Cyberculture  as well as in essays published over four decades, that consider relations between the body and screen as well as the configuration of physical and virtual space and time in popular formats like television news or sports and aerobic videos.  However, it is the experimental media arts that play with screens and mirrors, symmetries and assymetries, closure and diffusion that model reconfigured power relations of mutuality as well as surveillance and control.  Her current interests include investigating relations of  subjectivity, the gaze and the screen in smart phones and drones; she is on the lookout for new media art pieces that focus on their ramifications.  She is an Emerita Professor at the Department of Film and Digital Media at the University of California Santa Cruz.
