Presentation and argument

The Post Screen 2014 is an International Festival of Art, New Media and Cybercultures to be held annually, in Lisbon and will be the first edition of several international meetings related to the use of screens and its impact on contemporary thought. The Festival will be organized under the Cyberart Branch of the Centre for Research and Studies in Fine Arts (CIEBA) and will be held at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon (FBAUL).

The PSF2014 aims to bring together a group of experts in diverse fields of research and artistic practice and to promote interdisciplinary discussion and exhibition of creative productions on emerging issues around multiple forms of screen practices, considering its evolution throughout history, the circumstances in which it was used, its inherent aesthetic and technological language in an artistic, social, cultural and technological context.

The 2014 edition will be subordinate to the general theme, Device, Medium and Concept, on which intends to discuss the specifics of these aspects and their intersections within the art, technology and the social behaviors mediated by screens.

The Festival will have a theoretical, practical and training component, through a cycle of conferences, an exhibition of artworks in a virtual gallery and workshops through which enables access to new artistic practices and creative processes with use of new media.

Cycle of Conferences

The cycle of conferences aims at the presentation and discussion of topics concerning the relationship between the universe of art, digital technologies and virtual universe based on screens proposed by several authors, and will take place at the premises of the Faculty of fine arts of the University of Lisbon.
