Workshop Live Art

Van 26-08-2002 t/m 31-08-2002

Using new technologies in performance

Netherlands Media Art Institute, Montevideo/Time Based Arts in collaboration with Amsterdam- Maastricht Summer University

In this media saturated world, contemporary art practice is constantly expanding the use of technology. The workshop examines the historical and technological developments in performance arts. The course will be a creative and practical collaboration between performing and media artists, and will be contextualised by critical discussions of contemporary practice; video art as fine art practice, digital art & performance, interactive performance and time-based media.

The British artists group Blast Theory will help attendants to gain new access to history and technology which will allow them to move away from fixed images and media. In the evenings a special program is developed to further explore the immersion of different media in performance.

Blast Theory is a group of four artists based in London who make live events for theatres, clubs, galleries and the street. The groups work confronts a media saturated world in which popular culture rules. It uses video and computers to ask questions about the ideologies present in the information that envelops us. Founded on a belief in collective work and an openness about creativity Blast Theory collaborates with a wide range of creative people: from DJs to dancers, from CDROM designers to pop promo directors.
