Presence and absence. Visible and invisible
Presence and absence. Visible and invisible. This year, ARTEFACT focuses on artists working within these fields of tension. When do things become invisible, or where are they appearing? The confrontation with the visitor's view is most important and the art works very often seem to look back. STUK is filled with empty, but promising spaces, images and constructions. Mirrors and virtual mirrors appear everywhere. Light surprises in the dark. See or don't see, but come and watch.
During the ARTEFACT festival, an experimental program is presented throughout the STUK building. The international program doesn't focus on 'new technology' as such. It rather places themes and research areas in the field of new media in a larger context.
