European Media Art Festival, April 22-26, 2015 (Osnabrück, Germany)
IRONY IN MEDIA ART - SUBVERSIVE INTERVENTIONS
This year’s European Media Art Festival addresses precisely such ironic interventions, as well as major and minor rebellions in Media Art. Transcending the boundaries between film, sculpture, action and performance, artists playfully develop their social criticism, keeping a close watch on socio-economic conditions. Taking elements from day-to-day media, they comment on the distribution of power and prosperity in society, creating collages bristling with irony. Intelligent wit and a none-too-serious tackling of political issues – the artists’ passion for discovery and taste for open play create unexpected solutions.
The programme of the festival is available online.
