Internet Age Media Weekend 2017

Barcelona – The latest Internet Age Media futures festival will explore The Renaissance of Utopias.

  • Visitors will be able to experience talks, workshops, networking sessions, talent markets, creative showcases and commissioned projects
  • Five key sessions at the weekend will be Post-contemporary, Post-work, Post-labels, Post-advertising and Post-reality

The theme takes a political stance on digital issues, looking at the way in which media, education and the arts can shape labour, identity and diversity.

Speakers will come from a variety of disciplines, including Kaave Pour, creative director of Ikea’s SPACE10 incubator, grime producer Elijah, feminist activist Jasmina Tešanović, and cyberpunk novelist Bruce Sterling.

Alongside the main event there will be special projects including Possible Worlds, an immersive VR installation created in collaboration with Fabbula magazine, a University of Arts London Futures Studio, and the Micro-Utopias multimedia installation by design and strategy company Form&.
