EVENT

DigiMade: the Digicult Agency presents +39:Call for Italy at Nemo 2008


Dates:
Fri Mar 28, 2008 00:00 - Fri Mar 28, 2008

Location:
Italy

DIGIMADE:
THE NEW DIGICULT AGENCY

http://www.digicult.it/agency

At the beginning of its fourth year of activity, Digicult is proud to present its new side project, DigiMade, cultural and artistic agency promoting Italian digital artists worldwide. DigiMade is a part of the Digicult platform, including the web portal, the monthly magazine DigiMag, the audiovisual podcast DigiPod and the newsletter service DigiNews

---------

From its birth, Digicult had the chance to collaborate with some national and international partners, in the field of electronic arts and culture, both as curator and media partner and consultant. Some of partnserhips and curatiorial project followed during this period were with festivals like Sonic Acts (Amsterdam), Sonar (Barcelona), Elektra (Montreal), Mixed Media (Milan), Optronica (London), Strp (EIndhoven), Todaysart (Den Haag), Dissonanze (Rome), Netmage (Bologna), Ixem (Palermo), Peam (Pescara) and many others..

Thanks to this net of contacts and collaborations weaved during last two years, Digicult has decided to start a professional path to valorize Italian digital artists internationally, in the field of audiovisual art, interaction and urban design, graphic animation, electronic music and experimental video art. Working as an agency, DigiMade promotes and organizes the work of some well-known experimental artists of the Italian panorama, starting with Otolab, Quayola, Kinotek, Zimmerfrei, Mylicon/en, and promotes the critic and research activity of the members of its Network. With critical sense and curatorial attitude, DigiMade acts as a cultural
bridge between Italy and the rest of the world, because of the lack of Culture Institution in charge of this work and because of a total absence of help and funding by Institutions.

Within its critic, curatorial, networking and journalistic activity, Digicult had finally the possibility to develop specific projects, that will be part of the DigiMade activity in the next future. "+39:Call for Italy" is just the last one in order of time, produced for the Cimatics festival 2007 in Brussels: it is a format that goes from live performances to installations and videoscreenings about the relationships between Audiovisual art and Design with the aim to promote the Italian rich
tradition internationally.
