SIMULTAN FESTIVAL XII. 
_ POSSIBLE FUTURES _
3 — 7 .10.2017

\\___Preparing for the future does not require a correct prediction. A knowledge base on which to support action IS pre-pairing for the future.

Paired doctrines. Paired concepts. _Preserving. Generating. The technological. The human. ___/_

_It is therefore tempting to refer to the expansion of technology as the progress. _Predictability is a matter of degree. _-///__

_ To not embrace determinism of the technology for basic rules in which the human plays.

_To have the dreams that are deserved-dream better. __ Aspirations as parametres for our existance – may they create IN nightmares?

_What can be less controllable than dreams … //____

_ As information saturates there come curators, be capitally held responsible

for dreams above the loud bark of just any affirmation. ___/_

MEDIA ART
EXPLORATORY MUSIC
AND SOUND


SIMULTAN is an annual festival dedicated to media art and artistic experiment, creating a bond between different media. Initiated by a group of artists, the festival was born as an artistic project having the goal to create a cultural context of the ‘here and now’ on the local scene, encouraging new and innovative forms of artistic expression, as visual and sound language. Annually, in the 3 days of events, take place video art screenings, audio-visual live performances, experimental music concerts, installations and lectures. The festival features local artists and projects, as well as national and international artists and projects, with the support of the different cultural centers which activate in Romania. Thus, the event intends to establish new cultural and artistic bonds between the Romanian and the international art scene.

FRAME[WORK]


EUROPEAN TRANSMEDIA NETWORKING EVENT

4-5 October / 15-18h / Mansarda Bastion Theresia

The meeting aims to gather various European practitioners and professionals active in the fields of sound, visual arts, performance arts, and digital culture in general. By putting together different perspectives, we hope to enable collaborative work especially via the development of new technologies and languages at the intersection of various fields of creation and research.
The meeting intend to contribute to the networking of artists and organisations working in the field of digital culture across Europe and to foster the debate on the developments in media arts, focusing on long term collaborations and project development in the context of Timisoara 2021 - European Capital of Culture.

The meeting goal is to establish direct connections with organizations or project spaces that have similar activities and fields of interest as SIMULTAN, in order to discuss the possibilities of a closer co-working and co-production activity starting from 2018.

All the events are open for the public and the active participation of audience is encouraged.
