The 13th International Festival of Digital Arts of Greece - Athens Digital Arts Festival ( 18 - 21 May, 2017) announces its open call for entries for 2017 and invites you to look with us towards the « post-future ». #PostFuture
Can you imagine the Future? In the late 90’s Negroponte stated that “the digital revolution is over”. Almost two decades later and having accepted that the digital culture has been stabilized into our everydayness, we are moving forward to a most abstract creation. This futuristic lifestyle is reflected from the coherence of the ‘real – virtual’ boundaries. The humanization of technology along with the social and economic crisis lead to a replica of the physical world where everything is countable in digits, therefore simplified and transparent. Yet is post digital the real progress? Exploring this blurry future, we invite artists to ‘transcend’ digital culture and exchange opinions under the theme #PostFuture.
In the meantime, our goal is for all those who share our curiosity for life in the « post-future » to take part in this interesting and lively conversation. The interaction with a growing part of active citizens – but also with the city's visitors – is the primary desire and orientation of this year's 13th edition of the Athens Digital Arts Festival which comes to a new, even more open and interactive relationships with its public.
