Cultural Infocentre starts 48th birthday of Kaunas Artists House with an aspiration to explore the expressions of contemporary media and from now on will periodically invite visitors to open the DIS.ART encyclopedia, explore its video library and participate in accompanying events series.
On 25 of November, 7pm Cultural Infocentre will host the DIS.ART platform launch at KAH and its first preview “Genre-Nonconforming: The DIS Edutainment Network”. During the event, Gytis Dovydaitis, a lecturer, researcher and practitioner of digital culture, will present the platform and the post-Internet phenomenon in a short, but illustrative presentation.
The event will also be joined by the community radio station Palanga Street Radio. The collective initiative, which combines music, visual arts, social and community ideas, will present a musical evening program in radio broadcast format created specifically for the birthday of KAH and the DIS.ART platform launch at KAH. The live radio broadcast will be curated by Mavros Skylos, Princes and linze_911. Attention! FM radio will be reborn! We invite all participants of the event to bring their own radio, prizes and surprises await.
DIS.ART is a radical video education streaming platform, producing and publishing original series and docs by leading artists and thinkers, about issues critical to us: the future of money and inequality, how the “liberal” and the “democratic” are pulling apart, mass entrepreneurship in China, post-nationality and citizenship, media theory in the age of trolling, the future of global food sustainability, the ethics of Artificial Intelligence, and the intersection of sexuality, race, and the environment, just to name a few.
Who needs for a brain when we’ve got thumbs that can type and swipe across screens, seeking knowledge in a sea of online information too vast for the human mind to take in? – DIS.ART
So let Mondays be festive! DIS.ART and chill.
