|ART IN THE AGE|
of technical participation*
The focus of our Live Art projects is on intensive encounters between people in the here and now. The analog ambience that we specify, the real place that we stage, are and have been central to this work so far. Now we ask ourselves and others what added value participation can experience in meta-space and what new artistic intensities can result when analogue and digital worlds are intertwined. Key word: mixed realities. The detailed answers from the experts about their experiences can be found in the following pdfs.
Nele Neitzke, head of "Young Theater" at the Landestheater Linz
Lukas Jakob Löcker, collective "Backlab" and university lecturer
Martin Honzik, Head of Festival/Prix Ars Electronica
Robin Klengel, Collective "Total Refusal"
The discussions took place in different constellations: Michael Leithinger, Wolfgang Preisinger and David Retzer.
