New Media Projects
After a brief pause, New Media Society resumes its talk sessions in 2020 with “Artist/Curators”, an array of activities such as events, presentations, and panels in the field of the curatorial. This series of meetings will focus on the works of artists who took the initiative and strived to achieve the spaces and platforms for dialogue and actions. We will examine the on-going or paused projects that can help us imagine, recognize, appreciate, and possibly change and improve the current situation. These sessions will be documented, along with research projects from “Artist/Curators”, to be published gradually via an online platform.
