The talks unfold into a series of conversations, lectures and open discussions around moving image and beyond. Throughout the years, the programme shifted from having a strict focus on the medium specificity to encouraging an open and inclusive reflection on creative processes as well as the social, cultural and economic implication of art at large.
For the 2020’s edition, to be held online between November 13th and 26th, the programme will debate issues related with environmental and interspecies awareness, all the while touching upon “medium-oriented”reflections and the role of institutions under the virus. If the explosion of the pandemic questioned the sustainability of the (art) system as we knew it, it also shed light on the illusion of human supremacy against the proliferation of other species.
From different perspectives, the LOOP Talks 2020 will then revolve around these questions: how can we envision more inclusive ways of being in the world? Can eco-feminism be a tool to reshape the institutions of the future? How has the pandemic changed the way we produce and/or consume moving image online? How can art institutions and events respond to the progressive intermingling between art and technology?
This year’s LOOP Talks will be held entirely online via Zoom Webinar.
Free to attend with registration.
The programme includes sessions in English and Spanish.
The recordings of all sessions are uploaded on the “Video Channel” section.
