The Department of Performing and Digital Arts, University of Peloponnese goes to Athens Digital Arts Festival

 Following its first year of life (2019-2020), the brand new Department of Performing and Digital Arts, Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Peloponnese (Nafplion) launched an important collaboration with the International Festival of Digital Arts in Greece, Athens Digital Arts Festival. Such a collaborative scheme aims to reveal numerous creative links between academia and contemporary art scene by fostering academic education and intermedia artistic practices. The launch of this collaboration starts this summer (2020) under the umbrella project “Streaming Fluxus”, with students from the Department of Performing and Digital Arts and Theatre Studies submitting new works for the 16th Athens Digital Arts Festival, which goes also online through ADAF ONLINE (online.adaf.gr) during July-August 2020. This year’s artworks have been realised as part of the following modules: “Scenography: Installation and Intervention in public space” (MA in Theatre and Society: Theory, Staging and Didactic / Module leaders: Marina Kotzamani and Asi Dimitroulopoulou) and “Introduction to Performance Art” (BA, Department of Performing and Digital Arts / Lecturer: Bill Psarras).

What is Streaming Fluxus ?

Streaming Fluxus forms an umbrella theme and project. Such a title seems to be up to the minute theme. Two words stemming from the concept of flow, yet revealing various perspectives and translations. The current reality – the so called COVID-19 era – constitutes a global condition which probably reveals new digital spaces and ways of communication; new hybrid performances, new rituals and screen-based gestures. An evolving combination of humans, grids, webcams, hyperlinks, chat boxes, animated emoji, pixel and unexpected glitches; open to chance, Wi-Fi connections and data clouds. A form of communication based on streaming data; a streaming condition with artistic and performative potential across digital environments.
