DIGITAL ARTISTIC PRACTICES
Digital Art Today and How to Incorporate Digital Dimensions into Your Artistic Practice?
Facilitators: Majken Overgaard & Rune Brink Hansen
A workshop that offers you knowledge about what digital art is today and how you can develop your artistic practice in digital formats, connecting it to income streams and improving your ability to convey your artistic work digitally.
The workshop has been developed in collaboration between Korridor, CAKI, and Vega to introduce the specific challenges and opportunities involved in developing an artistic digital practice, identity, and strategy.
This is the first time the workshop is being held. It is considered a pilot project where we are testing whether the format and content are relevant to students and can become a recurring offering. Therefore, initially, the workshop is only for a small number of students.
The students will, as far as possible, be invited to participate based on a practice where, in dialogue with the school’s teachers, we have assessed that the student may immediately benefit from having digital perspectives on their artistic practice and business.
There are limited seats available for the workshop, where CAKI can provide 10 seats in both Copenhagen and Aarhus. The remaining 15 seats are offered for sale in the professional environments through the venue Vega. Therefore, not all students for whom it would be relevant to participate may be invited to participate in the pilot program.
We apologize in advance if not everyone who wants to test the program has been asked. That’s how it has to be this time. If it turns out that the program in format and content is meaningful for students, it will be a goal to offer the workshop again in the near future.
The program has been developed with support from the Tuborgfondet.
Kl. 10.00 -11.30. Introduction and presentions by Majken Overgaard and Rune Brink Hansen
Majken Overgaard and Rune Brink Hansen from Korridor provide context for the workshop and share their own practices and experiences with digital artistic practices.
We delve into the business models that characterized web1 and web2, and we explore web3 – the current version of the internet – and relate it to possible dimensions in artistic practices.
This is illuminated through an exploration of the opportunities for developing digital artistic practices. We base this on AI and connect it to new business models rooted in decentralized distribution and social media.
Kl. 12.00 -13.00 Lunch and group conversation
Over a shared lunch, we talk about who we are as artists, and how different analog practices can be translated or connected to digital practice.
Kl. 13.00 -14.00 Presentation by Michail Stangl aka Opium Hum
We are joined by Michail Stangl aka Opium Hum, who shares their practice and experiences with digital music production. We will also incorporate examples from other musicians and artists.
Kl. 14.00-15.30 Workshop: Focusing on your own practice
We get closer to individual artistic practices and explore opportunities for digital and hybrid formats as ways to express artistic practices.
Specifically, you will gain perspectives on how to develop a part of your music/art practice in digital formats and connect it to business models and communication strategies in your artistic career.
Together, we focus on what characterizes your practice, as well as the possibilities you have to develop a digital dimension in your work. We examine how the digital dimension can be linked to a digital presence as part of the business model for the artistic endeavor.
We are interested in bridging the physical and digital worlds, exploring the possibilities for digital presence, and extending the lifespan of various types of artistic productions.
Kl. 15.30-16.00 Summery
