Nieuwe Instituut and LI-MA would like to invite you to take part in An/Other Frameworks@REBOOT, a special event at Nieuwe Instituut on Saturday 7 October, from 16.00-17.30 prior to the official opening ceremony of REBOOT. Pioneering Digital Art.

More information about the event:
The REBOOT exhibition presents a series of works made in the early days of the Internet and digital art that raised questions about societal values and embraced radical possibilities of computer and network technology. In addition to experimenting with new technology as such, artists have continued to challenge the conditions of a system in which those technologies function. In doing so, they have built upon the legacy of those early, pioneering works.

In the programme An/Other Frameworks@REBOOT, we expand on the themes of the exhibition, and aim to take stock of urgent themes facing digital makers and artists. We invite leading researchers Aymeric Mansoux and Ramon Amaro to reflect on two issues: the climate crisis as an urgency to respond to in digital culture, and the inclusion of more diverse and alternative voices in computing as one of the key themes of Nieuwe Instituut's new testing ground -1. 

Speakers: Klaas Kuitenbrouwer, Sanneke Huisman, Aymeric Mansoux, Ramon Amaro. Moderator: Shailoh Philips  

Practical information  
This event finishes at 17.30, at which time the exhibition will be free for visitors.   
Participation is free of charge, please RSVP here.
