Art Meets Radical Openness 2024 for Art, Hacktivism and Open Cultures (Austria)

A graphic with the text 'Art Meets Radical Openness 2024 call for participation'.

Art Meets Radical Openness (AMRO24), a biennial community festival for art, hacktivism and open cultures held from 8 to 11 May 2024 in Linz, Austria, is calling for participation from artists, programmers, researchers, activists and free spirits. The festival is looking for experimental, critical approaches to the uses of technology; combining performative and artistic research methods; and works open for feedback and further development.

Art Meets Radical Openness has been organised since 2008 by servus.at in cooperation with the Linz University of Art, Department of Time-Based Media. The four-day event includes: a discursive programme with keynotes, panels and lectures, workshops and showcases, and a nightline.

At the crossroads leading to a complex multi-crisis, AMRO24 aims to create spaces of resistance against the technological monoculture. It invites its community of artists and technologists, activists and developers to contribute with work envisioning forms of computational degrowth and permacomputational principles; developing with forms of protest and dissent to the normative, extractive and anti-social technological mainstream; and dealing with the consequences of a perhaps resistible rise of total AI.

Formats:

  • Lectures or Panel proposals (up to 40 minutes)
  • Workshops (1–3 hours, maximum 15 people)
  • Artwork presentations and showcases
  • Video works and short movies
  • Performances (approximately 30 min)

The festival will support participants with travel reimbursement, accommodation, food and a fee based on the type and length of the contribution. Their budget allows them to generally fund travel within Europe. They want to avoid flying and support more sustainable forms of travel, like train, bike or boat.
