The cycle of conferences Post-Screen: Intermittence+Interference is part of the Post-Screen Festival programme and brings together a group of 20 experts in digital technologies, art and museology/curating, among which we are pleased to announce the following guest speakers: Beryl Graham (UK), Jussi Parikka (UK), Kate Mondloch (USA) and Mirjam Struppek (IT / GER).
The aim of this cycle of conferences is to generate a dialogue between the fields of art and technology through multidisciplinary studies that critically contribute both to research and artistic practice. It focuses, therefore, on subjects such as photography, film and video, social museology and public space, closely related to the underlying concept of post-screen which gives the festival its name.
The main objective of the PSF2016 International Conference is to provide academics and artists with interdisciplinary interests the opportunity to reflect, discuss and interact with professionals within and beyond their own disciplines.
