AMRO - Art Meets Radical Openness 2016, Linz
Festival Dedicated to Art, Hacktivism and Open Culture
The four days lasting festival under the topic “Waste(d)!” was devoted to aspects of the conditions of our digital infosphere that are increasingly perceived as complex. The act of saving, deleting, or resurfacing data and information has taken on a life of its own, is monitored, monetized and waste valuable natural resources.
What is the cultural, social, philosophical, ecological, and economic significance of producing, saving, deleting, and resurfacing data?
Artists, hacktivists, cultural producers, journalists, F/LOSS developers, idealists, and others contributed to the edition of the festival within an exhibition, workshop, lectures and performances.
AMRO is a biennial community festival in Linz that probes and engages with new challenges between digital culture, art, everyday life, education, politics, and taking action.
