«Over the last 10 years, glitch, a perceived break from a flow in a
technological system, has become a more and more popular subject matter
in the (new) media arts. Today, Glitch Art is indeed so popular that theorists
often feel the need to categorize and historicize the genre. Dada, Futurism
and de Stijl are just a couple of historical Avant-Garde movements that have
been used to delineate ‘the history’ of Glitch Art. But this teleological
principle defies and confines glitch’ procedural and fragmented nature.
The exhibition (ᴳ̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇litch) Art Genealogies does not focus on glitch art from a
historically singular point of view, nor does it attempt to give an all
encompassing historical or causal overview. Instead, (ᴳ̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̇̐litch) Art Genealogies
recognizes the complexities and processes of glitch arts’ many affiliated,
interconnected and (geo-)fragmented discourses: it tries to shine a light on
why particular glitches develop social-political momentum in a specific point
in time and how this momentum changes over time. [>> check out the full program.pdf]
