New Modalities of Artistic Presence During Covid

With the Covid-19 pandemic, the arts are going through an unprecedented crisis that upsets one of the main foundations of their practice: the physical presence of the public. The purpose of this fifth edition of the Vertigo Interdisciplinary Forum bringing together artists and curators is to propose a debate aimed at overcoming the stupor of the profession by presenting original approaches that seek to break free of existing constraints, in particular by means of telepresence technologies.

These new topologies of presence in art not only impose themselves on public exposure but also on production: in a context of generalized multidisciplinarity, new modes of collaborative creation are being organized and experimented with.

3pm | Collaborative Creation

This panel discussion brings together composers involved in different forms of collaborative projects in the musical field, in connection with other arts or in a design process. It will be an opportunity to introduce the "Collaboratory" thread of the new European project Ulysses 2020-2024.

5pm | Performing Arts in The Era of the Covid-19 Pandemic

Martin Honzik director of the Ars Electronica Festival
Elli Papakonstantinou director, author, visual artist, ODC Ensemble
