The Urban Media Art Academy in Durban opens a two day LAB+LECTURES programm and a FIELD TRIP for artists, curators, and citymakers from 23-24 June during ISEA Durban 2018.
The Durban topic will be CITY OF INTERSECTING RITUALS. We will discuss the intersecting rituals of Durban; their role in everyday life as gestures of tradition, repetition and performance, their origins and meaning for the city’s urban development, and explore how urban art and creativity can interrupt, adjust or affect urban situations in which rituals intersect.
The program combines talks by local and international experts and discussion in collaboration with the Digital Galligraffiti project resulting in performative projection of our collective research and messages.
The Urban Media Art Academy is a networked, global educational initiative that investigates and intermediates urban media art as an interdisciplinary domain of practice, theory and knowledge sharing. The Durban program is organised by Dr. Tanya Toft Ag and Susa Pop, co-organised with artistic director of ISEA Marcus Neustetter, and realised in collaboration with Goethe-Institut Johannesburg.
