FIBER at SPEKTRUM Berlin

Event

FIBER presents audiovisual art at SPEKTRUM

As part of CTM/Transmediale Vorspiel 2016, we are presenting a collaborative two day programme at SPEKTRUM with audiovisual performances, an artistic meetup and a screening programme. The event is co-created with LIMA, Berlin based Retune and SPEKTRUM’s local communities. This cultural exchange is part of an ongoing research trajectory to setup an artistic production network for emerging artists between European festivals.

On Saturday night, January 23, 2016, FIBER presents two audiovisual performances by upcoming Dutch artists Zeno van den Broek and Mark Ijzerman. The former explores the tension between space and sound, while the latter presents a research into the performative and material qualities of tape loops. Prior to the audiovisual performance evening, there will be a meetup during the day that brings together practitioners in the field of performative & immersive art, which is co-hosted with Retune. The goal of this collaboration is to create a day of exchange, communication and collaboration between actors using similar platforms and tools.

The programme continues on Sunday evening, January 24, with a screening programme of video art, digital and performance artworks. For this special occasion FIBER collaborates with LIMA, the international platform for sustainable access to media art, and made a selection of video’s taken from LIMA’s extensive historical archive.

Central to the Vorspiel programme is the exchange of network and knowledge between various artistic practitioners who are operating within the domains of live cinema, performative installation art and immersive performances.


FIBER at SPEKTRUM has been made possible with the generous support of the 
Creative Industry Fund NL.

Performative & Immersive Art Meetup

FIBER, Retune and SPEKTRUM combine their forces to bring together Dutch and Berlin-based artists & designers from different backgrounds (sound, architecture, visual arts, design, performances, engineering) and artistic communities (vvvv, Max MSP, OpenFrameworks, Processing, etc). These artists are working with a wide range of tools and softwares to create hybrid audiovisual performances, interactive immersive installations playing at the edge of the physical and virtual world. Their work distinguishes itself mostly by its audio or visual quality and/or its artistic aesthetics. During this performative & immersive art meetup, the selected artists will present and give insight into their working processes, explain for instance how they work with code and reflect on the influence of online communities within their working processes.
