Plataformas de la imaginación October 2015-Jan 2016

October 9, 2015 in ELO, Events

ELO is proud to sponsor Plataformas de la imaginación in Mexico City! (October 2015-January 2016)

Plataformas de la imaginación is the first initiative in Mexico carried out to present the current state, the historic trajectory, and the aesthetic variety of electronic literature produced around the world. In consonance with the literary, interdisciplinary, artistic and technological avant-gardes at an international level, this project aims to place electronic literature in the central discussion of the artistic agendas in general, and that of digital culture in particular. The various events comprising the project will be held in Mexico City, and include multiple activities with the support of prestigious Mexican institutions.

The activities of Plataformas de la Imaginación include three exhibits at Universum-Museo de Ciencias (universum.unam.mx), Centro Cultural Universitario Tlatelolco (tlatelolco.unam.mx) and Centro de Cultura Digital (centroculturadigital.mx); a handful of interventions and live performances in Casa del Lago Juan José Arreola (casadellago.unam.mx); the world premiere of Eugenio Tisselli’s new piece will take place in Palacio de Bellas Artes (palacio.bellasartes.gob.mx). Additionally, an international symposium will be held at Sala Carlos Chávez of the Centro Cultural Universitario (cultura.unam.mx) featuring conferences by invited artists, critics, and scholars, both national and international.

Featured artists: Alison Clifford, Belén Gache, Benjamín Moreno, Eduardo Kac, Eugenio Tisselli, Jörg Piringer, Loss Pequeño Glazier, María Mencía, Serge Bouchardon, Young Hae Chang Heavy Industries, Amaranth Borsuk, bpNichol ✝, David Clark, Gustavo Romano, and Jan Robert Leegte. Platformas de la Imaginación was designed by the Laboratorio de Literaturas Extendidas y Otras Materialidades (lleom), a scholarly independent Mexican organization that promotes the creative, analytic and theoretical work linked to hybrid artistic processes and objects (digital and non-digital), with intermedial and literary studies as starting point.
