sound:frame 2012


Dates:
Thu Apr 12, 2012 18:00 - Sun Apr 22, 2012

Location:
Vienna, Austria

Entitled «substructions», sound:frame 2012 in Vienna, Austria, sees the sixth edition of festival for audiovisual expressions for the first time putting forward for discussion a general framework of audiovisual tendencies and works.

Themes like cultural economy, positioning in the context of art and sustainability will be examined with regard to the system “festival” and will then be put up for discussion in the settings of exhibition, conference and supporting programme.

Economic, artistic, as well as social and ecologic parameters will be demonstrated. An internal glimpse on the sound:frame festival and its community will be sharpened by presenting different perspectives and overarching expertise of related and seemingly distant disciplines. A technical basis will be fixed in place for the creative work, whereas as to content the artistic positions will get absolute freedom. Due to this it will become apparent which consequences a substruction of audiovisual tendencies has and can have on creative realisation. As basis for further development the concepts and insights of both the exhibition and discourse programme «substructions» should be analysed and discussed.

2012 program consists of :

- Exhibition «substructions» (12.04.2012 - 29.04.2012) at MAK-Ausstellungshalle (a cooperation between sound:frame and MAK Austrian Museum of Applied Arts)

- 2 days conference

and many parties at different locations..
