TOUCH ME Festival



The international festival Touch Me presents contemporary art production at the intersection of science and technology. Including an exhibition, performances and a symposium, it will tackle the topic of Abuse of Intelligence. This thematic framework arises from the need for artistic and cultural analysis of contemporary forms of violence and systems of control. Starting from the twofold meaning of "intelligence" (implying both information and intellection), the project explores the abuse of information and intelligence, but also the forms of structural abuse brought about by the technological organization of contemporary social processes - abuses relating to information, telecommunications, media, technology, science, the entertainment industry, etc.

Alongside the ethical and political problems of the info-sphere, the festival
explores the abuse and manipulation of techno-scientific discoveries that disrupt, transform or create the living world and environment. The festival takes places within Operation:City.
