AMRO brings together local and international artists, activists, developers, researchers and hacktivists involved with the culture of sharing and communal production. The four-day event include a discursive program with keynotes, panels, lectures, workshops, showcases and a nightline.
The current edition of Art Meets Radical Openness is dedicated to the rituals and the philosophies of debugging. Software bugs are much more than simple engineering mistakes. With the eyes of radical openness, they are the moments in which the surface-tension of perfection and infallibility of the ubiquituous machinery is broken and its inner logic gets briefly exposed – the glitch in the matrix. Aim of the festival is to unpack debugging from the strict technological connotation to a wider understanding in terms of knowledge creation and community building.
AMRO is organized by servus.at in cooperation with the department of Zeitbasierte Medien of the Kunstuniversität Linz.
