digital arts and realities
The first two editions of Multiplica, in 2017 and 2019, sought to introduce visitors to a wide variety of artistic approaches exploring digital technology as means of expression. The 2021 edition of Multiplica will be a more engaged one.
There will be fascinating digital works to enjoy but every event will also give the audience the possibility to go further, towards a deeper understanding of today's hyper-connected society, by offering some key pointers. Since we hold digital tools in our hands on a daily basis, we might as well try and retain power instead of letting it slip through our fingers. Time has come for both rookies and seasoned users to question the environmental and societal impact of these technologies. Issues of neutrality and inclusiveness in the digital sphere – frequent topics of discussion but that are rarely followed by action – will not be eluded. There is no shortage of matters for debate.
During four weekends between February and December, digital artists and experts will share their experiences, concerns and criticisms through installations and performances, encounters and workshops. The audience will be able to expand their knowledge and sharpen their perception of today's digital world. The hope behind Multiplica is that visitors come away with a better understanding of digital age issues and better equipped to debate them. Once technology is demystified, it becomes easier to master the digital tools if offers, be it for artistic purposes or for social engagement.
