INACT Festival 'the thickness of transparency' > Open call (France)

In 2019, the festival INACT propose to artists to interrogate the Internets. Faced with the apparent accessibility of knowledge, the citizen is overwhelmed by contradictory information and caught in a vertigo before the immeasurability of their data. Paralyzed by this sudden profusion which promises universal knowledge and ultimate capacity, the citizen is distanced and manipulated by this new intelligence. 
How to to approach, create and criticize this distance which immobilizes those infront of the controlling screen, contemplating the contradictions of the world.

The association invites this year artists to propose workshops as interventions aimed at amateurs who would like to be initiated into the practices of performance, and whose workshop can lead to a representation or exhibition or not. Four artistic proposals will be selected from the open call in 2019.
