SPECULUM ARTIUM 2015 (15th – 17th October)
7th International Festival of New Media Culture THE INTEGRITY OF REALITY
The Speculum Artium festival has, since its beginning in 2008, become established as one of the leading festivals of new media culture in Slovenia. It presents and supports productions evolving and emerging within the very structure of new media practices around the world, such as the synthesis of the principles of art and technology, socialization of new media production, it introduces a fil rouge between traditional visual and new media practices, and establishes a critical reflection – it is a subversive interface among art, technology and society.
The purpose/aim of the festival is to acquaint a wider public with information technologies while at the same time making several generations familiar with and educate them about different and new possibilities of application of new media technologies and their relation with classic visual techniques.
The 2015 festival will present students and acknowledged artists whose primary engagement in art intervenes into the domain of virtuality and the application of new technologies, when development of various technological applications reaches beyond the limits of the real.
