<nettime-ann> DEAF07 Interact or Die! - Seminar Programme - online booking now open!

*V2_, organiser of the Dutch Electronic Art Festival, DEAF07 Interact or Die!*
presents a lively seminar programme of four condensed days with demonstrations, debates and theory rooted in artistic research and development (aRt&D). All seminars share the topic of critical exchange between different fields, such as the arts, social sciences and technical sciences, philosophy and industry. The seminars represent theory and practice as intertwined aspects in todayâs creative research themes. These mixed format seminars differ from academic seminars by including demonstrations and (virtual) performances, and a range of critical theory and philosophy.
