A 2-day programme of installations, presentations, panel discussions and live performances exploring image, sound and digital art.

Ursula K. Le Guin wrote that “technology is the active human interface with the material world”. From the digital tools that platform and enable activism, to architecture that tacitly governs our movement through space, technology has changed the ways in which we create, communicate and relate to each other. How can we embrace this shift to nurture a more inclusive culture in digital art, electronic music and beyond? (Inter-) explores this question on an international level whilst celebrating some of the most progressive artists in the field.

(Inter-) is born out of Amplify, an ambitious initiative that connects an active network of female-identifying artists and curators working in the digital arts and immersive storytelling sectors in Argentina, Canada, Mexico, Venezuela and the UK. Amplify took place for the first time during MUTEK Montréal in 2018, followed by editions at Mutek in Buenos Aires and Mexico City.

Leading up to the event, eleven artists from the UK and Americas will be in residence at Somerset House for 5 days, including Milena Pafundi and Prifma from Argentina, Edna King, x/o, Push 1stop & Wiklow, RAMZi, and Sabrina Ratte from Canada, Ale Hop and Analucia Roeder will represent Peru and from the UK, Marija Bozinovska Jones and rkss will be taking part.

In Partnership with British Council and MUTEK.

Canadian Amplify artists are supported by the British Council and the Canada Council for the Arts.
