Contacts: 20 Years of Pixelache
Contacts is a transnational symposium that weaves sociocultural issues that are facing our contemporary times.
Contacts is a transnational symposium that weaves sociocultural issues that are facing our contemporary times. The symposium opens a public sphere for critical dialogue on communal survival and cohabitation, and will unfold a series of presentations, film screenings & an open-mic closing session.
Contacts are fundamental life forms such as gathering, confronting, and sharing. Transversal solidarity, interdependence and mutual support are potential tactics to reveal and confront silenced structural oppressions such as racism, classism, nationalism, authoritarianism, and patriarchy.
Pixelache organizes this symposium as a way to celebrate and reflect on 20 years of existence as a cultural association. Over this period of time Pixelache has been emerging from digital subcultures to engaging participatory platforms, from DIY to Doing-It-Together, activating and creating through its increasingly postnational community and network of artists, designers, cultural producers, thinkers, and activists.
