New Forms Festival – Call for Artists

New Forms Festival 2009 :: Emancipation through Creation

The Convergence of Media Art, Electronic Music and Digital Culture



New Forms Festival 2009 (NFF09) will serve as a socially significant platform to engage the theme Emancipation through Creation. Its goal is to initiate a movement that broadens the imagination and cultural scope of artists, curators, and participants alike through emerging media technologies. 

Emancipation through Creation aims to demystify the myriad veils of (art, society, identity, politics, technology and media) that cloud our world today. Mass media has saturated our inner spheres, dislocating us from the fertile culture around us. For this year’s theme we define liberation beyond its traditional meanings and investigate the freedom inherent in the creation of new art.

Digital culture, we propose, is not only to address and identify the social ills by exploring them through desired digital realms but also to help navigate a solution designed to encourage the transformation of our culture.

NFF is a festival of pioneering new media art that recognizes the symbiotic relationship between arts and the larger social milieu.  It offers a portal for artists to network and a point of celebration for fresh technologies to articulate the possibilities of our evolving culture meme.

Visionaries, activists, scientists, hactivists, on-line collectives, electronic musicians, kinetic sculptors, installation artists, performance artists, information artists, videographers, students researching specific areas of theory and philosophy, professors experimenting with next level presentations and all other new media and electronic artists are heartily encouraged to apply for the festival.
