Dear spectre!

Under the title "Social Distancing - Virtual Bonding," CIVA, Vienna's new media art festival, explores the question of whether and how current technologies enable us to stay connected to each other on a virtual level in times of physical distancing, or even to build new international networks and communities.

The program of the first edition includes a virtual exhibition open around the clock, a three-day discourse program with international talks, workshops and performances, four live concert evenings, two film screenings, a digital wellness day as well as a comprehensive mediation offer including theme-oriented CIVA Ambassador Groups, numerous tours and special workshops for young people.

The whole festival is online and is freely accessible via <http://www.civa.at/>or<http://twitch.tv/civa_at>


I am very excited to give an artist talk followed by a panel with the scholar Nina Köll and curator Marijn Bril – discussing catoptric theatres, immersion, reflections of the self, and the notion of newnesstodayat16.30h CET.

Hope to see you there!
