Cinema, interactivity and society /1st biennial: Figures of interactivity

Espace Mendès-France

Together with the University of Quebec in Montreal and the University of Poitiers, the European School of Visual Arts (ÉESI) and the Espace Mendès-France have devised the launch of a two yearly international multidisciplinary series of meetings from the Fall of 2008, in the form of a think-tank focusing on the Figures of Interactivity.

The first international symposium, Cinema, Interactivity and Society calls upon artists and research fellows to seek to broaden horizons from the standpoint of cinema, by scanning a range of issues associated with the perception and the creation of images in motion, viewed from the critical angle of interactivity.

During a three day run, artists, philosophers, theorists and research fellows from the media, the cinema, video-games and the interactive sphere generally, will come together in the new auditorium of the National Theater of Poitiers (France) to share their know-how and their spirit of inquiry as well as their doubts, concerning the tendency to transition to which society is committed.
