ンフラ INFRA is an examination of the infrastructures that rule the modern world. Those infrastructures provide an environment for an ecosystem where artists, musicians and performers locate and navigate their work, one that has changed dramatically since the emergence of the Internet. It’s here that インフラ INFRA’s global, interdisciplinary and independent state of mind exists.
Organised by Berlin-based music platform 3hd Festival and Japanese-run online gallery EBM(T), the multimedia and international program of concerts, performances, exhibitions and talks, proposes a break from institutional and market-based boundaries for musicians, artists, and performers. It will take place across venues in Tokyo, over one week from August 19 to 26.
インフラ INFRA will provide access and awareness for a number of under-recognized artists from a range of cultural contexts, offering an insight into how its participants use new technology to develop their own practices, while also engaging in a network of circulation enabled by the Internet. The festival is committed to exploring and promoting creative practices at the intersection of music, technology and contemporary art, arguing for providing structures, spaces and methods to support that. In addition, インフラ INFRA understands itself as a space where people of all genders and identities are treated equally and where women are supported and encouraged, in particular.
Representing artists from various media such as painting, sculpture, video and installation, as well as performance and talk events, インフラ INFRA presents a new and diverse perspective of contemporary art and beyond.
