X International festival for new media culture
October 16 - 25, 2008 in Riga, Latvia

Electromagnetic fields are biologically active. Emitting from every electronic device, electromagnetic fields affect our body and the living nature. They interact with the natural emissions and intersect the boundaries of our planet. Invisible and omnipresent, electromagnetic fields have become ghosts of the modern world...

The 10th edition of the “Art+Communication” festival, organised by RIXC, takes place in Riga from October 16 – 25, 2008. Entitled SPECTROPIA, this year festival continues to illuminate artistic explorations within the invisible space of electromagnetic spectrum surrounding us.

The festival programme (October 16 – 18) features:

  • SPECTROPIA exhibition with live events, workshops and experimental film screenings [at Riga Art Space]
  • International conference [at RIXC Media Space, co-organised with MPLab of Liepaja University]
  • Live performances [at RIXC Media Space]
  • Experimental film and video programmes [at: Cinema Riga, RIXC Media Space and Riga Art Space]

The exhibition in Riga Art Space is open from October 17 – 25.
