Artistic line

Cities are lively, composite, constantly changing spaces; houses, streets, squares, courtyards, industrial buildings, green areas form a rich visual, audio and tactile mosaic. Human beings live and act in these spaces creating relationships and conflicts, both among them and in relation to the urban spaces. The physical structure of the cities influences the citizens’ behaviour as much as the human activity contributes to change living spaces. When a special event connects the little stories of individual and communities to the great history of nations and masses, the visible and invisible signs of what happened remain forever not only in the memory of the witnesses but also in the stones, in the ravines and in the voids which gradually but constantly have been changing the urban structure. Contemporary cities contain an endless number of “cities of the past,” layered and hybridized to each other; at the same time, cities hold their potential for change and development.

Visible cities and invisible cities coexist and interact. In/visible cities International Urban Multimedia Festival aims to discover and to reflect on the complexity that interconnects cities and human beings unveiling endless emotional dimensions by using the potential offered by digital, multimedia and interactive art languages.
The art works will act directly on physical spaces transforming them in active, significant elements able to tell stories and transmit emotions. The new technologies will offer a variety of approaches to research what does not appear visible within the cities, their histories and the many stories of the different communities, the social and economic relations among their inhabitants. The artworks will also explore the human ability to imagine and to plan for the future. Additionally, the festival aims to stimulate the communication between artists and audiences developing participatory performances and interactive dialogues.

The festival newly conceived concept of #urbanmultimedia includes all possible relationships between visible and invisible cities and the artistic and technological languages atbol and narrate their urban heritages.

The Festival is funded also by: The European Union – Creative Europe, The Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia, The Municipality of Gorizia.
