Never before in history have society and culture undergone such radical changes as with the emergence of the digitalisation and the Internet. Developments have also left their mark on art. Migros-Kulturprozent has been dealing with this development since 1998 and has launched a number of funding programmes and projects during this time; these include the Digital Brainstorming platform, the bugnplay.ch competition, Kulturbüro and the regular support programmes in the field of mediation and production.
How have the protagonists of the 90s developed? What are upcoming tendencies? What will the future bring? Experts and artists will explore these and many other questions at the event. Lectures and presentations as well as video statements by artists and curators will provide exciting insights into current trends, visions and personal experiences. A series of artistic works from the areas of media art and digital culture from the last twenty years will also be presented – all part of the HeK collection.
At the same time, Migros-Kulturprozent will announce the 2018 grants in the field of digital culture. The total amount of funding is 50,000 Swiss francs.
Additionally the current publication produced by Migros-Kulturprozent will be presented: Media Arts in Switzerland – Pioneers, Tinkerers, Provocateurs.
