THE SONIC ACTS ACADEMY, 26-28 FEB 2016
The Sonic Acts Academy is a new platform that aims to grow, expand, sustain and disseminate stimulating discourse about artistic research. The Academy is set-up by Sonic Acts, which also organizes the internationally renowned Sonic Acts festival focusing on developments at the intersection of art, science and technology. The Sonic Acts Academy will highlight artistic engagement as vital to understanding the complexities of our contemporary world. Over the course of three days, artists will present work that challenges the sterile dichotomy of theory versus practice. Following an open and dynamic format, the Sonic Acts Academy will probe traditional notions of the academy with the aim of positioning art as a unique means of knowledge production, to be shared and expanded upon with future generations.
There are lectures, concerts, film programmes, work presentations, masterclasses and workshops. The opening of the event takes place on Friday 26 February, at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, and is followed by two days of lectures, presentations and films screenings at the Brakke Grond. On Saturday 27 February, Sonic Acts will take over Paradiso with concerts and performances lasting until the small hours.
