HUMANTROPE

Transhumanism has certified that the canonical representations of the individual have come to an end. At the present time the human thing, like an evolution fugitive, feverishly seeks for its new identity in an uncertain posthumanism. A trope, from the Greek tropos, defines the substitution of one thing for another, the alteration of one natural state by another, as well as the search for a direction and a sense

Interdisciplinarity is the characteristic of our Anthropocene time with its necro-politics, and the artists of MADATAC 08 assault this premise in all its bright magnitude, designing remote, breathtaking, intuitive, convoluted, seductive digital landscapes, with bipolarity by horizon.

In this edition of Humanotropia, the creative approaches recreates themselves in the “human” body, to observe the human soul trapped within the body condition, endorsing the promise of a technological progress interlaced with the destructive nature threat of the body-machine.

This was already announced in 1924 in the empirical film L’ Inhumaine of Marcel L’Herbier, known in Italy under the title of Futurism, on the inhumanity and/or dehumanization, of the techno-irrational processes of the super man, with an aesthetic next to the postulates that underlie in the essence of MADATAC.

However, the festival does not take as an intention to sow the uncertainty or the fear of a revolution against the human nature. It only aspires to be a framework where represent the grand post-illusionists narratives of contemporary art, those that move the audience into a continuous exploration of the cultural phenomena and which, sooner or later, will transform us permanently into poly-diverse organisms.

Iury Lech, MADATAC Director



ABOUT MADATAC

A contemporary Festival of New Media Arts & Advanced Audio Visual Technologies- is an independent, non-profit, international platform with an open, all-encompassing philosophy and an on-going commitment to education and free access.

Our emphasis is on innovation, originality, risk-taking and poetry within audio-visual, experimental and new media art works, while our objective is to provide a real, virtual and itinerant laboratory where artists can present their most recent creations to audiences, critics, curators, collectors, the academic community as well to other artists.

We aim to discover and support research work that uses new technologies applied to audio-visual arts, and recognize those cross-disciplinary artists, emerging as well as established, who challenge conventional narratives to merge the technical universe with that of the imagination; to build global bridges between artists, audiences and organizations dedicated to the most groundbreaking artistic production.
