- Video and Media Arts Festival
23-25 October 2008, Timisoara, Romania.
Under the theme “Temporary Tactics”, Simultan04 explores
a conflict situation, a difficult cohabitation between the independent
audio-visual works and the cultural, social and political context
in which they are born.
“Temporary Tactics” wishes to highlight time and space
connected “speculative” situations, the practice of acting
and reacting, of making and creating, in the moment and in response
to the stimulus of one’s immediate environment.
The Simultan Festival is an international platform for the audio-video
concepts, intending to support and broadcast the new movements and
trends of the contemporary culture, such as video art, new media,
soundart, experimental and electronic music.
The festival wishes to keep up with and to stimulate the creative
ways of the most modern visions of contemporary culture, of those
who belong to the contemporary spirit, by presenting the current processes
and the new tendencies and by establishing new cultural bonds on the
stage of Romanian and international art.
