“artMUSE ONline” – a virtual festival in the framework of the artMUSE – facing the future – from industrial to post digital revolution Project, which is an alliance of autonomous media art events. The online part of artMUSE is dedicated to collect and show media art and video documentation of artistic projects, in the subjects of industrial heritage, industrialization or urbanization and „green art” with the emphasis on the usage of digital media or the latest technical developments.
artMUSE is dedicated to the creative energy, which uses earlier developments to realize ideas about the present and the future. The project’s aim is to join industrial history, digital culture and green agendas in media art. In artMUSE the historical effects face the contemporary tendencies of art of our times of digitalization, as they have been rarely presented together. The project artMUSE opens up new vistas of discussion and cooperation between these fields. It supports this process by combining common industrial heritage with common themes of the present and future. The inclusion of media, programming and informatics in applied media art and artistic techniques is an emblematic feature of our contemporary society in Europe: the connection between art and technology is an initial point and at the same time motor of present-day social and cultural initiatives. The integration of new media in cultural processes builds up a base for the latest media art. Beside the technical developments the new user-culture tools playing an important role in artistic praxis as well, e.g. in its certain way of perception, aesthetics, interaction with the viewers and participation of them. These could be seen as inducements of nowadays artistic processes, the matter of perception and reflection or the communication with the beholder.
