Genealogy of Art and Technology in Colombia: 1976-2016
In the 1970s, experiments were made in video art that paved the way for the country to become established as one of the centres of experimentation in art and technology.
The object of this lecture is to bring the audience closed to a prolific artistic movement that has manifested itself in different fields: from the video art and analogue experimental cinema of the 1970s and 80s, to the first experiments in the electronic arts, net art and interactive multimedia in the 1990s, to become in the last two decades a leading scene in technology-supported artistic creation.
The lecture will include an overview of the artists, institutions and spaces that have promoted these relationships in the last forty years.
