Ars Electronica – Copy Paste

Piksel Cyber Salon – Piksel Fest Spill 2020 / COPY PASTE exhibition / Hackteria & Badlab

Piksel is an international network and annual event for electronic art and technological freedom. Part workshop, part festival, it is organized in Bergen, Norway, and involves participants from more than a dozen countries exchanging ideas, coding, presenting art and software projects, doing workshops, performances and discussions on the aesthetics and politics of free technologies.

Piksel participates in the unofficial parallel activities around the Bergen International Festival. We call this new initiative Piksel Fest Spill. The goal of this new program is to add electronic performances to the art scene during the most international season in Bergen, May/June.

Piksel Fest Spill 2020 is premiering the Piksel Cyber Salon. Designed by the Mexican artist Malitzin Cortés, the virtual venue hosts COPY PASTE, an exhibition featuring the work of five artists who all make copying a core aspect of their work. The exhibition aims to show that copying is natural, and to rethink the way we create/share/copy and paste.

Piksel presents a video program and a Live Coding ALGORAVE. The Worship – Dinner Performance, an original idea from Maya Minder, Hackteria, takes elements of #asrm (autonomous sensory meridian response) as a way to explore the online broadcasting of emotions through sound. The Authors of the Future. Re-imagining Copyleft lecture, by Constant, is about authors’ licensing. The curator’s tour will be led by Antonio Roberts, who will participate in the ALGORAVE with Alex McLean.
