Version is a festival focused on emerging discourses and practices evolving between art, technology, social critique and activism. Version examines local systems and external networks that use visual and conceptual art strategies, innovative social practices, creative uses of new technologies, effective organizing structures, emerging activist/artist initiatives, campaigns, public interventions and DIY projects.
During the annual convergence we engage in a dialogue about the possible futures that may interdict or provide alternatives to current social, cultural and political trajectories. Our fifth convergence, Version>06, is dedicated to the theme of Parallel Cities. Version will investigate and share local strategies and models to inspire action within local and global counter cartographies.
Version presents a diverse program of activities featuring an experimental art exposition, artistic disturbances, exhibitions, networked urban events, screenings, interactive applications, performances, street art, presentations, talks, workshops, art rendez-vous, and action. Alternative spaces will be open for staging actions. Public spaces and corporate places will be terrains of intervention.
