The 2019 edition of Catch Summer Camp welcomes master students, PhD-students, artists, professionals, makers and creatives of all sorts to participate in one week of studying artistic production and curating in the Era of Technogenesis. During the summer camp we will explore the possible horizons and thresholds of this era organized in two tracks:
The summer camp will focus on realities and production of art based on processes of innovation and intersecting materialities, generally afforded by emerging technologies but also with an attentive eye towards obsoleted ones. We will investigate how artistic and curatorial approaches can be implemented into, extend, or disrupt habitual structures of production, distribution, and innovation.
Participants will work independently in a workshop format, including lectures by invited speakers (see left) and supervision by professionals and the camp teachers. It is expected that participants conduct experimental work leading to a concrete concept or prototype by the end of the week, which will be exhibited in the Catch Center for Art & Technology in Elsinore from the 17th -18th of August, and in combination with a poster-session at the RE:SOUND Sound, Media and Art – Theories, Histories, Practices conference in Aalborg from the 20th – 23rd of August.
