The current situation has brought a lot of change for the way we work, interact, and consume. This is especially true for the art sector – that is why at Clujotronic we will talk with 𝗔𝗻𝗴𝗲𝗹𝗮 𝗕𝗿𝗲𝗻𝗻𝗲𝗰𝗸𝗲 [𝗗𝗘] and 𝗦𝗶𝗺𝗼𝗻 𝗟𝗮𝘇𝗮𝗿𝘂𝘀 [𝗙𝗥] about their work in the field of creative technologies during lockdown and about art as a means of overcoming hardships. During the talk, we will discuss ways of exploring the opportunities and drawbacks of the dissemination of digital art when the traditional channels of physical presence – such as event venues, museums, and galleries – are not accessible. How do artists make their existing work available to new (online) audiences and how do they distribute digital works? It is now more than ever that technology gets involved in art, resulting in emergent digital (art) practices.
