Eva Fotiadi, of Caradt’s group Situated Art & Design, is giving a lecture in this year’s Crash Course in Art & Media Technology at V2_Lab of unstable Media in Rotterdam. Eva will be participating in the session about Media Art x Disabilities, and her lecture will focus on histories and examples of art, contemporary curating and disability activism.

The session aims at diving into the captivating realm where technology and creativity converge to explore how art & media technology intersect with the reality of sensory/physically diverse people. Through immersive installations, thought-provoking discussions, and captivating performances, we’ll aim to illuminate the senses and sensitivities of individuals with diverse abilities in media art. We’ll see how leading artists, researchers, and advocates unravel some of the innovative techniques and inclusive approaches employed in media art to ultimately foster a more accessible and inclusive society, redefine antiquated notions of abilities/disabilities, and celebrate the richness of the human experience.

From multisensory installations that stimulate touch and sound to groundbreaking advancements in assistive technologies, this event will showcase the boundless potential of media art to inspire, empower, and redefine the boundaries of human creativity.

Guests: Eva Fotiadi, Jerzy Bielsky & Thomas Brand (Futurists), Thomas Brand , Alcide Breaux
CASE respondent: Melissa Bremmer
