About

Abandon Normal Devices (AND) is a nomadic commissioner and born-digital producer, a catalyst for new approaches to art-making and digital invention. We create ground breaking projects which challenge the definitions of art and moving image with a distinct emphasis on creative enquiry and provocations.

AND brings together an eclectic mix of academics, filmmakers, scientists and anarchists to actively push the boundaries of audience experience and arts production. Inviting artists to hijack the imagination, by developing projects which abandon traditional settings and partnerships.

Proposing a significant shift in the way art is experienced, the AND portfolio consists of site-specific film happenings, exhibitions, performances, online projects, residencies, public realm interventions and a roaming biennial festival. Audiences are invited to interact with bold ideas, encounter new art-forms and experience art, in the everyday and in unexpected locations.

AND Festival is the UK’s first roaming festival of cinema, art and digital culture, which maps fresh geographical and digital domains every edition. An international catalyst for partners and artists to explore different contexts and curatorial models.dan
