CYNETART Festival 2018

From 11 to 14 October 2018, the 22nd edition of CYNETART will take place in the Festspielhaus Hellerau in Dresden, one month earlier than usual. CYNETART is known for the presentation of international art positions with new media and technologies. A programme of concerts, performances and lectures is part of the festival as well as the biennial CYNETART competition and the award ceremony. A festival satellite at PYLON Lab will show further CYNETART artworks and a clubbing session at objekt klein a invites to dance.

Vox Mediä

MDR: „The shown works and actions are still intellectually demanding. But CYNETART has become more sensual and perhaps even warmer.“

Sächsische Zeitung: „Ulf Langheinrich, artistic director of the festival since 2016, wants the positions on the edge of the debatable in the programme. It's always about the future, about reflection, about encounters, about provocation and doubt.“

ZEIT: „At the Dresden CYNETART Festival artists create digital parallel worlds. Visitors are pushed to the limits of their perception.“

Monopol: „The International Festival for Computer Art CYNETART focuses on the networking of man, technology and nature.“

→ More Info

The two rappers from KLITCLIQUE in Vienna use pop culture to question feminist cliché. Their show »Schlecht im Bett Gut im Rap« is presented.

At the opening event of CYNETART, visitors can experience »Binary Graffiti Club Choir«. This project looks back to the Binary Graffiti Club of British artist Stanza. He investigates urban spaces at the interface between performance, politics and art. At the Festspielhaus, the concept is translated into a Dresden choir that takes the city as being literally ‘Silicon Saxony’.

The dancer and choreographer Caroline Beach and the photographer Ian Whalen work together in Dresden, crossing audiovisual and performance elements with their immersive project »AnnieQuinn©«. Visitors to CYNETART are invited to reveal personal details about themselves in order to learn new visual truths through custom made masks.

Meanwhile, Taiwanese performance artist Ya-Wen Fu's new work »Aiming, but where to« III is a quest for the relationship between body and space.

The exhibition for this year's CYNETART-Competition opens at 7 p.m.

Day Pass: €11,00 / €7,00

DAY II — FRGMENTS | FR, 12th of October

7 p.m. Ya-Wen Fu »Aiming, but where to«III / Performance
8 p.m. Julien Bayle »FRGMENTS« / A/V show, EU premier
10 p.m. Anna Zaradny & Robert Piotrowicz „ex-L'tronica. Karkowski re:mix“

7 p.m. - midnight - Exhibition

→ Click for a detailed description

"FRGMENTS" is the theme of day two and includes a European premiere at the Festspielhaus Hellerau. French artist Julien Bayle will present »FRGMENTS«, an audiovisual live performance, for the first time in Europe. The project is both an audiovisual live performance and an autonomous installation demonstrating the constant interruption of a continuous flow of sound and images. FRGMENTS represents a real-time programmed system in which pre-recorded video material is collected using a cut-up technique and temporally and spatially reassembled. This process occurs in both a controlled and autonomous way. Julien Bayle tries to fathom who ‘the other’ might be and what ‘the other’ might feel.

"Ex-L‘tronica". Karkowski re:mix" by the two Polish sound artists Anna Zaradny and Robert Piotrowicz, from the "L‘tronica" Festival at Łódź, is dedicated to one of the greatest composers of avant-garde electronic music Zbigniew Karkowski, who died in 2013. The project aims to preserve his important heritage, which continues to inspire many avant-garde musicians worldwide. The two artists will interpret their personal and artistic relationship with Zbigniew Karkowski musically. This is an opening event leading to further activities in Dresden, as well as in New York, London, Tokyo and Prague.

The live performance »Aiming, but where to« by Taiwanese artist Ya-Wen Fu focuses on searching for the relationship between body and space. In her performance, Fu investigates the space in which one feels and acts, and therefore the area in which the perceiving self exists. The artist uses stylistic elements of performance art from the 1960s and 1970s and combines them with contemporary dance.

The CYNETART exhibition is open from 7 p.m. to midnight.

Day Pass: €11,00 / €7,00

8 p.m. Guillaume Pires Parada »Parasitic« / A/V Dance

3 p.m. - midnight - Competition Exhibition

→ Detailed description

As part of the guts company’s forum "Power To Whom - Crowds and Power", interdisciplinary artists and activists Bogomir Doringer, Sarah Ulrich, Chiara Baldini and others will examine the role of the contemporary collective and of the individual body in the socio-political environment.

For more information see: CYNETART 2018 — Forum

In an exclusive event, the French dancer Guillaume Pires Parada will present his solo performance »Parasitic«, which combines choreography, digital art and sound design. In a cold and radical stage area, the artist will push himself to the limit of his own physical resilience. Individual tracks from Ben Frost’s album »The Centre Cannot Hold« support this gloomy parasitic situation.

The project »πTon« is a sound installation that investigates the relationship between elastic structures and the human voice. A long rubber tube, closed in a loop, is animated like an invertebrate body by contortions and wave movements. A group of four dumb people equipped with vocal prostheses surrounds the installation. Behind Cod.Act stands the Swiss artistic duo, the brothers André and Michel Décosterd. Their artistic approach is rooted in a reflection on sound and movement.

Jung an Tagen is a project by the avant-garde Viennese artist Stefan Juster. The artist presents his latest album »Agent im Objekt« in connection with a sensational visual show. Using synthesis and sampling techniques, Jung An Tagen builds aleatoric arrays, repetitive figures & polyrhythmic moirés that speak equally to the body as to the mind. The grammar of this music is confounding while the language is itself immediate, oscillating between modern composition and ritualistic techno, immersion and repulsion.

The performance AnnieQuinn© is an interactive installation by dancer and choreographer Caroline Beach and photographer Ian Wahlen. Two Things are important in this immersive project. On the one hand, the extension of one’s own body through masks and on the other, the exploration of the boundaries between the performers and the audience. Visitors to CYNETART are part of the performance. They are invited to reveal personal details about themselves in order to learn new visual truths through custom made masks.

The exhibition is open from 2 p.m. to midnight.

6 : 30 Caroline Beach & Ian Whalen »AnnieQuinn©« / Interactive AR
7 p.m. Caterina Barbieri / modular synth concert
2 p.m. - 8 p.m. - Competition Exhibition

→ Detailed description

Following the "Terminator vs Predator" discourse, CYNETART will start on the last day of the festival with the two Macedonian artists Jasna Dimitrovska and Dragana Zarevska, active as group Ephemerki. As part of the lecture performance »Contexter vs Discoursor«, Ephemerki focuses primarily on the academic art scene and scrutinise its structures and internal power relations. The work refers to Foucault‘s "Surveillance and Punishment" from 1975. In contrast to Foucault, the performance reflects the institutions that are formed and carried by people, but in the end proscribe critical thinking.

Introducing Bonaventure’s live set and preparing the audience for a multilevel perspective on her work, the journalist Sarah Ulrich will interview Bonaventure (Soraya Lutangu) on stage. Following Bonaventure’s highly political approach to producing music and visuals, they will explore her ideas about questions of race, identity and trauma. Understanding music as a tool, Bonaventure de- and re- constructs identity through her work. She confronts the audience with the ambivalent relationship between norms and violence in society, the fluidity and possibilities of modern identity.

Following the Polish sound artist Ewa Justka traces the concept of materiality in hidden objects with her homemade instruments.

Today, visitors to the festival have the final opportunity to experience the interactive installation AnnieQuinn©". The artists Caroline Beach and Ian Whalen, who work in Dresden, combine audiovisual and performance elements in this piece. In this immersive project, the extension of one‘s own body through masks plays as important a role as the exploration of the boundaries between the performers and the audience. Visitors to CYNETART are part of the performance. They are invited to reveal personal details about themselves in order to learn new visual truths through custom made masks.

For the close of the festival we invite you to a concert by the Italian composer Caterina Barbieri. Focusing on minimalism in composition and permanent repetition, she develops versatile polyphonic and polyrhythmic worlds. The modular synth composer will perform her compositions on a Buchla 200.

The CYNETART exhibition opens finally from 2 to 8 p.m.
