What are the imaginary futures in this time of global re-invention?
Strategies for survival in a changing cultural industry seems to be a constant re-invention, challenging of one’s own status quo. As media artists, self-conscious networkers and strategists in their own right both Nina Czegledy (Hungary/ Canada) and Marcus Neustetter (South Africa) constantly respond to their contextual shifts and resulting needs. This approach of positioning oneself critically even to one’s own experience and discipline, results in a pro-active colliding of ideas, engaging in experimental practice and imagining futures.
Czegledy and Neustetter have prepared a small exhibition in which they collide images of their experiences to allow their juxtaposition, much like the Large Hadron Collider, to find new meaning and solutions. This becomes the starting point for observations and a performative presentation and aims to result in discussion and imaginings.
Virtueel Platform, the artists and the hosts in Utrecht, Leiden and Amsterdam invite you to join this experimental process and participate in imagining futures in this time of global re-invention.
