The European project Transimages consists in the organisation of a cultural and artistic international event which includes four structures, each of them producing a web site in France, Sweden, Austria and Italy.
The theme " European Transimages: mutations of contemporary images" covers current problematics on image status in an era of maximal information circulation. Today image has become the most widespread means of representation and communication ; thus ruling the technological world as well as human exchanges.
New techniques of image manufacturing and circulation (digital tools, the web) have altered the status of the image .
The creation of virtual reality environments has increased the ambiguity of the relationship between reality and its visual representations.
The flow of images conveyed by mass media, of which internet is henceforth a part, has contributed to image's loss of credibility . New products have turned up like immersive environments or body prostheses.
We propose to reevaluate the significance of the concept "image" and that of the concept "reality" which have lost their stability and their universal meaning.
The organizers of the project are four information and creation sites in the area of current visual arts. The French project is organized in partnership with "Main dOeuvres" :
SYNESTHESIE (France) is a journal of artistic theory and practice http://www.synesthesie.com
SPRINGERIN (Austria) is an aesthetics magazine http://www.springerin.at
ASSOCIATION FOR TEMPORARY ART (Sweden) is an artist collective. http://www.art.a.se
UNDO.NET (Italy) is a network for contemporary culture http://www.undo.net
MAINS D'OEUVRES (France) is an artistic and associative interdisciplinary space http://www.mainsdoeuvres.org
The project is supported by Culture 2000
