Studio XX is looking for new members for its Programming Committee (2017-2018).
Are you an artist, activist, curator, critic, scholar, student, or writer who is passionate about digital arts?
Join XX’s Programming Committee!
Deadline to submit your candidature: June 15, 2017
Founded in 1996, Studio XX is a bilingual feminist artist-run centre that supports technological experimentation, creation and critical reflection in media arts. XX assists in the independent production and diffusion of art created by artists who identify as women, queer, trans, and gender fluid in the field of contemporary technological practices. Demystifying, providing access, equipping, questioning and creating, these are the aims of Studio XX. The centre actively participates in the development of a digital democracy that encourages autonomy and collaboration.
The Studio is a space specifically dedicated to the feminist practices of a community of critical and committed artists who are often marginalized within the digital arts world (and in society). XX contributes to the redistribution of power and expression between genders by defending an inclusive feminist position and by denouncing the persistence of gender disparities. The Studio supports projects from individuals and communities who use and design more accessible technologies, from artists who experiment with recycled materials and free software, from those who work with post-internet practices, and from people who define the Do-It-Yourself and Do-It-Together ethics.
