The festival »CODED CULTURES – Exploring Creative Emergences« addresses questions regarding the codes of creative cultures and artistic practices, which are based on new transdisciplinary and hybrid developments of culture and art under the conditions of a post-contemporary digital media-age and transformations of related artistic developments. Therefore, the festival creates a surrounding in which new ways of emerging arts, creativity, theories, projects and ideas can be explored in the field of digital media related forms of creative delineation and arts. The particular aim is to present, discuss and criticize topics, which are situated on the intersection of disciplines and activities in order to enforce new potentials of artistic practices and positions. By these means, persons from the field of digital media related art and culture, who derive joy from discovering ways to circumvent limitations are welcome to submit their works, projects, theories and ideas. Regarding this, CODED CULTURES is mainly searching for projects, which shape new vectors of creation and art, situated between: e.g. Science & Art, Technology & Art, Design & Art, Fashion & Art, Economy & Art, a.s.o.

ABOUT CODED CULTURES - Exploring Creative Emergences

The second edition of CODED CULTURES is a binational festival (Austria – Japan) in the year 2009 to explore new artistic practices and creative ability profiles within media integrated project-cultures and digital media related art, focusing on Japan and Europe.

Through the establishment of new creative cultures, enabled by digital media and global communication networks, new practices and ability profiles for creative and artistic delineation and exploration are gaining new grounds. Furthermore, synergies of symbolic values of cultural and economic programs dealing with the potentials of »creativity« can be observed. At the moment these profiles are roughly subsumed (e.g. as »creative class«), but at the present day it is still difficult to predict which catalysts and draft programs will be put into effect for creative innovation processes or artistic entrepreneurship. This global phenomena, which is being set up via nodes of creativity (e.g. networks, communities, organizations, projects, etc.) is becoming more and more uprooted from disciplinary guidelines and permitted structures of local traditions. Therefore, new ways of cooperation and development of socio-cultural production paradigms have been introduced.

In this context »new« things happen based on cultural conditions of transformation, which have departed from the usual mechanisms of production and distribution and create an innovation-fabric, which does not yet have any adequate surface for the presentation of the observation and mediation of such transformation processes. The concept of »CODED CULTURES – Exploring Creative Emergences« presents artistic-creative production mechanisms, which are based on digitally linked media-cultural organizations, and actively integrate these into the delineation process of their innovational operating level. Thereby, new options of coherence emerge on the further development of the parameters of art / culture / economics / knowledge development / idea aggregation / intermediation / participation, for digital communication and media technologies, as well as their conditions of participation, are being integrated.

Therefore, the festival creates a surrounding in which new ways of emerging arts, creativity, theories, projects and ideas can be explored in the field of digital media related forms of creative delineation and arts. The particular aim is to present, discuss and criticize topics, which are situated on the intersection of disciplines and activities in order to enforce new potentials of artistic practices and positions. By these means, persons from the field of digital media related art and culture, who derive joy from discovering ways to circumvent limitations, are welcome to submit their works, projects, theories and ideas. Regarding this, CODED CULTURES is mainly searching for projects, which are shaping new vectors of creation and art situated between: e.g. Science & Art, Technology & Art, Design & Art, Fashion & Art, Economy & Art, a.s.o.
