GENERATE!° Festival 2019
GEN­ER­ATE! deals with cur­rent trends in art that are deter­mined by the inter­dis­ci­pli­nary use of elec­tron­ic media or dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies. GEN­ER­ATE! is inter­est­ed in the mutu­al rela­tions between art, sci­ence and tech­nol­o­gy against their socio-polit­i­cal back­ground. Spe­cial atten­tion is giv­en to con­cep­tu­al works that are ded­i­cat­ed to the reflec­tion on gen­er­a­tive process­es of devel­op­ment, their con­di­tions and respec­tive algo­rith­mi­cal­ly con­trolled outputs.

GEN­ER­ATE! as an over­ar­ch­ing pro­gram­mat­ic title implies both artis­tic-tech­ni­cal process­es of devel­op­ment and the indi­vid­ual ques­tion of the pos­si­bil­i­ties of becom­ing cre­ative­ly active one­self. The aim is to cre­ate a cre­ative and crit­i­cal dis­course frame­work on the aes­thet­ic, socio-polit­i­cal and eco­nom­ic con­di­tions and effects of media and infor­ma­tion tech­nolo­gies of the 21st cen­tu­ry. GEN­ER­ATE! thus seeks to explore and shape ways and forms of aes­thet­ic prac­tice that pro­mote and facil­i­tate a crit­i­cal and self-deter­mined par­tic­i­pa­tion in these developments.

GEN­ER­ATE! Fes­ti­val for Elec­tron­ic Arts takes place for the fifth time after the four fes­ti­vals of the pre­vi­ous years and fol­low­ing the light and video art fes­ti­val series 2010 — 2014 as well as sev­er­al media art fes­ti­vals, each under chang­ing con­di­tions at dif­fer­ent venues and with dif­fer­ent coop­er­a­tion partners.

Inter­rupt­ing the bien­ni­al rhythm of a small and a large fes­ti­val edi­tion, the fifth GEN­ER­ATE! Fes­ti­val presents itself for the sec­ond time in a row and a total of three times as a small generate!_lab in exper­i­men­tal live for­mat, which is main­ly ded­i­cat­ed to a per­for­mance and work­shop pro­gramme with­out a large exhi­bi­tion sec­tion. The fes­ti­val and the orga­niz­ing Kun­stvere­in still have no new cen­tral loca­tion avail­able after the change­ful events around their actu­al exhi­bi­tion space Shedhalle.
