On Saturday, May 26 th NONE collective organizes the fifth and the last date of Simposio: a meeting, performance and installation program that investigates the man-machine relation within the contemporary society. It was conceived to trigger a network, a public debate and a reflection on the digital contemporaneity and its implications on a perceptive, cognitive, social, and economic level.
Once a month, artists, intellectuals, researchers, writers, communicators, hackers met in NONE studio and through the convivial practice of the Greek-Roman symposium, to deepen the knowledge and the awareness of the relationship man-machine, to investigate the methodology with which the art can act on the present.
The objective of Simposio is to put in place a process of investigation on the contemporary condition and creation of artistic expressive autonomy, not referring to the creativity of art but intending art as starting point of a subversive strategy.
Simposio#5 will take place on Saturday, May 26th with Jaromil (hacker and theorist), Valentino Catricalà (contemporary art critic and curator), Marcello Cualbu (Interaction designer, physical computing, teacher), Donatella Della Ratta (media and arabic culture researcher, teacher), NONE collective (artist), Lulu Shamiyya, Marco G. Ferrari, Ludovica Manzo, Igor Legari, Giacomo Ancillotto (artists and performers) in L’immagine sparita – improvvisazione voce-video-suono sugli archivi della rivoluzione pacifica, Siria, 2011; Being Berber (electropop trio).
