ADD+ART 2021 CONFERENCE. Open for registration


ADD + ART 2021 is an online conference that, within the global context of control, uncontrollability and isolation, aims to discuss and to share projects and research on mechanisms of production, artistic process formalisation strategies, and the creation and set-up of new spaces for the realisation of artistic practices, and their interaction with social space.

The two day programme offers an opportunity to take part in this event and to find out about the 60 projects, in formats such as video, graphic project, photo essay or online communication, selected from an open call which has received applications from various countries - such as Argentina, Canada, United States, Great Britain, Italy, Malta, Norway, Poland, Spain, among others.

The keynotes speakers in each conference strand are: Bassam El Baroni (curator and professor at the School of Arts, Design and Architecture, Aalto University), Anna Dot (artist and lecturer at the University of Vic and EINA) and Anne Rodríguez (cultural manager and head of the Centre of Artistic residences of Matadero Madrid).
