“Open Source discourse”

Panelists: Marco Mancuso, Tatiana Bazzichelli, Anna Frants, Vanina Saracino, Marc Poggia

Held annually since 2007, CYBERFEST is the first and biggest festival for technologically-based art in Russia. 100+ innovators participated in CYBERFEST 2013 in Berlin, marking the first time this important event has been held outside St Petersburg. This significant move was designed to strengthen the cultural exchange between Art and Technology creatives within Russia and their international counterparts.

The ‘reSource transmedial culture berlin’ is an initiative of the transmediale festival for art and digital culture, that happens throughout the year in the city of Berlin. The reSource extends into ongoing activities with decisive touchdowns at each festival. The objective of the reSource is to act as a link between the cultural production of art festivals and collaborative networks in the framework of art and technology.

The panels are not formal and not presentations. They are much more open discourse between really great people who come from different places / experiences but work in similar realms. you are on the panel about digital platforms and what role critical analysis, archiving and accessibility (among other points) have played in shaping contemporary art. the panels in general, will be open, honest conversations among the panelists that may know each others work and even speak online – but not have much opportunity to have face to face dialogue or human connections to those in their own “networks”.
