The International Digital Art Festival ELEKTRA has been working since 1999 to discover the diversity of performance practices, including audiovisual and robotics.
ELEKTRA is an organism diffuser of works artists that combine art and new technologies while registering in aesthetics current research and experimentation.
The International Digital Art Biennial (BIAN) takes place every two years. This major exhibition on issues combining visual arts and digital mobilizes, in a joint action, actors in the field of arts and new technologies.
As a cultural institution focused on digital technologies and digital arts, and raising questions about the effects of digital technologies and the digital arts, they thought it’s important to act as a leader in eco-responsibility and in all our organization.
In April the eight AAVE (Alternative AudioVisual Event) brings in live cinema performances, experimental films, video art, documentaries and installations for your eyes, ears and other senses. It shines on the screens, stages and exhibition venues in Helsinki.
The theme of the year 2018 is hauntology, haunting through media, memory, and matter.
They introduce the theme via live cinema performances, screenings, exhibitions, and a seminar. In their main screening series, they will show the short works by the legendary pioneer of Japanese experimental documentary film, video art and avant-garde film Matsumoto Toshio and our qualified live cinema guest artists performances and surprising moving image works will light up the program with tempting, otherworldly shine.
Sonic Acts was founded in 1994. Over the years, it has established itself as a thematic festival with a strong focus on contemporary and historical developments at the intersections of art, technology, music, and science.
Each festival edition explores the chosen theme by means of an international conference, a wide range of concerts and performances, exhibitions and screenings, and embraces a broad spectrum of fields, practices, and disciplines.
Sonic Acts has developed into an organization for the research, development, and production of works at the intersection of art, science, and theory. It also commissions and co-produces new works, often in collaboration with international festivals, arts organizations, funders, and other partners.
Recent projects include the three-year art, research & commissioning project Dark Ecology, predominantly taking place in the Arctic region, and its globally touring programme Vertical Cinema.

Transmediale is a Berlin-based festival and year-round project that draws out new connections between art, culture, and technology. It considers technology as being more than the digital world and the cultural as being more than what emerges from within institutionalized fields of production.
The formats of the festival change from year to year as Transmediale tries to foreground the intrinsic link between transdisciplinary thinking and cultural practice.
The 31st edition of the festival, directed by Kristoffer Gansing for the seventh time, aims to take stock of current affairs in order to understand if and how things could be different. Its participants will seek possible new ways of resisting and deconstructing the alarming development of digital populism, the radicalization of net culture, and the new culture wars.
(Post)digital culture today seems to support hate-mongering, racist and neo-colonial powers rather than provide an emancipatory alternative. Transmediale is therefore actively seeking out self-critical discussions of topics otherwise rarely addressed at digital culture events—such as contemporary imbalances of class, gender, and race—within a variety of curatorial formats and modes of knowledge exchange.

Liquid Architecture is an Australian organization for artists working with sound. LA investigates the sounds themselves, but also the ideas communicated about, and the meaning of, sound and listening.
For this program, they are collaborating with artists who work at the intersection of theory and live performance. These artists use various strategies to extend vegetal thinking into sound and listening, from guided walks, talks, readings and lecture performances to experimental music, installation, herbalist pedagogy, and folk songs.
This program, Why Listen, proceeds from these questions as it attempts to open up the act of listening in social, scientific and political space. It is an inquiry into both the consensus constructing communication—and, indeed, creating communicators—and an attentiveness to the vitality of voices beyond the conceptual.
‘Interference’ literally means meddling, intervention, disturbance.
Interference Festival 2018 – 5th Festival of Visual Communication, it’s a one-of-a-kind event in the Pomeranian District which the main target is to popularize visual arts.

AV Link Jam / BYOB was organized by Crux, the hub for learning, experimenting, collaborating and entertaining, on Thursday, November 15th, 2018. It was their second edition and free for everyone who wanted to join.
When you entered the space, it all seemed very open and chill. People were drinking beer, talking to each other, walking around and admiring the people’s work. Almost every wall had a beamer projection on it. It was very diverse which made it refreshing. You weren’t looking at the same thing at every wall. Every minute it’d change so even if you’d be watching the same projection, you wouldn’t look at a video that was on a loop.
Because it was a free event, the genuinely passionate artists show up. It looked like a community, people know each other and talk about the same topic. When you would talk to the artists about their projection, you could see the fierce enthusiasm they had for it.
The soundtrack worked really well with the atmosphere. Many different things were going on at the same time but the music helped to keep you focused.
All and all, it was quite mesmerizing and hypnotic. It kept your eyes stuck on the all the projects you were seeing. It all moved fast, had bright colors, and had recurring movements. It’s a very fun night where you can chat and check out new and different artists. A good concept!

A fond believer of the concept of Homo Ludens, Daan’s interactional works are always based on the expressive potential of the spectator. The audiovisual elements within such a piece are used as a means to achieve a new kind of social experience.
Other pieces strive to be perceptual explorations. Light, sound & kinetics flood the senses, to see what remains.

Nick Verstand (1984) is a contemporary artist exploring human behavior and perception through spatial audiovisual compositions. His autonomous installations and live performances investigate the materialization of internal emotional experiences and are created through collaborative design processes aimed at breaking down social boundaries.
The resulting intuitive experiences, co-creations of artist and audience, generate a hypnotizing environment for the subconscious mind.
Nick has exhibited and performed at Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Dutch Design Week, Art Central Hong Kong, SXSW and collaborated with artists such as Fatima Yamaha, Joep Beving and Suzanne Ciani.

Microwave Festival began in 1996 as an annual video art festival of the local video art institution Videotage. As technology progressed and became more accessible, video art slowly evolved to involve other media; thus Microwave began to embrace the wider range of new media art. As the first and only art festival in Hong Kong dedicated to new media art, Microwave has steadily grown into a well-established festival that brings cutting-edge works to provoke thought in the technological hub every year.
In its 10th anniversary, Microwave Festival celebrated by becoming an independent organization, completed with a re-branding by design partner Milkxhake and a strengthened curatorial and working team. Microwave then continues the hard work to inspire Hong Kong and the rest of the world with pioneering media artworks selected to suit themes relevant to the society today, while also avidly supporting the exchange and dialogue between artists, professionals, and the general public.
They envision that through the Microwave network, Hong Kong artists will be introduced to international institutions and curators, working as a platform and gateway for them to develop their art and skills. Apart from the grand annual festival, Microwave also endeavors to nurture a rising local new media arts community, organizing various programmes such as educational workshops, seminars, forums, and exhibitions.

Este año ha sido grande por muchos motivos. Desde Vjspain apoyamos el documental “Visualist, those who see beyond”, que muy pronto verá la luz. Gracias a este proyecto hemos profundizado en el trabajo de grandes artistas tanto locales como internacionales.
Pero además, hemos sido espectadores de directos audiovisuales de gran calidad en varios festivales del país. En marzo dentro del marco de Mutek Barcelona alucinamos con el directo de Herman Kolgen y el show de Alexandre Burton & Julien Roy (artificiel). Viajamos a Madrid para conocer el proyecto Sonar360º by MEDIAPRO, el dome que disfrutamos después en Sónar Día Barcelona y redactamos este artículo sobre la parte visual del Sónar 2018. Viajamos a Gijón para disfrutar de la programación del L.E.V Festival y nunca olvidaremos la actución de Hiroaki Umeda. También estuvimos en Amsterdam y tuvimos la suerte de ver el directo apoteósico de Nanotak en el festival Dekmantel. Otra de las aventuras inolvidables de 2018 fue nuestro viaje a Praga y este vídeo resumen del Signal Festival. La mejor edición del Mira Festival y la gran presencia de artistas visuales mujeres será también difícil de olvidar.
Y ahora, sin más preámbulos, damos paso al top 10 de los posts más leídos del año.

Refik Anadol is a media artist and director born in Istanbul, Turkey in 1985. Currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California. He is a lecturer and visiting researcher in UCLA’s Department of Design Media Arts.
He is working in the fields of site-specific public art with parametric data sculpture approach and live audio/visual performance with immersive installation approach, particularly his works explore the space among digital and physical entities by creating a hybrid relationship between architecture and media arts with machine intelligence.
He holds a master of fine arts degree from the University of California, Los Angeles in Media Arts, master of fine arts degree from Istanbul Bilgi University in Visual Communication Design as well as bachelors of arts degree with summa cum laude in Photography and Video. Co-founder and Creative director at Antilop.
As a media artist, designer and spatial thinker, Refik Anadol is intrigued by the ways in which the transformation of the subject of contemporary culture requires rethinking of the new aesthetic, technique and dynamic perception of space. Anadol builds his works on the nomadic subject’s reaction to and interactions with unconventional spatial orientations with data and machine intelligence. Embedding media arts into architecture, he questions the possibility of a post-digital architectural future in which there are no more non-digital realities.
He invites the viewers to visualize alternative realities by presenting them the possibility of re-defining the functionalities of both interior and exterior architectural formations. Anadol’s work suggests that all spaces and facades have potentials to be utilized as the media artists’ canvases.
