Bucharest International Dance Film Festival
Un invito dalla Romania: La selezione e partecipazione del mio video “CORPUS PROPHETIAS” all’esposizione di video installazioni nella futuristica Galleria Galateca, nell’ambito del (BIDFF) II Bucharest International Dance Film Festival che si terrà a Bucharest in Romania dal 9 al 13 novembre.
Ringrazio i curatori per aver inserito il mio video tra le nove proposte che hanno superato la selezione tra tutte quelle giunte da ogni parte del mondo e di poter far parte dell’evento.

#THE DIGITAL BODY#
curators: Simona Deaconescu & Emilia Paunescu (RO)
Since the late ’40s the fine line between the body and the information begins to lose intensity. Large scientific projects promise to extract information from the human body and use engineering genetics for practical applications. Sociologist Manuel Castells talks about a city and a society as an information network. The body becomes a matrix of data, emotionally encapsulated, defragmented and decorporalized, in a constant flow of fake memories and super sensorial experimentation. Extracorporeal digital age is a reality that requires a matrix of information to replicate itself over and over again. Who are you in this environment and how do you deal with it? We are interested in promoting dance films (short and long, fictional and documentaries), video and digital installations, talks and lectures that have a strong opinion on the way the body adapts to the era of informational chaos.
EXHIBITION, LECTURES & PERFORMANCES
