Fronte Vacuo & Luca Pagan – Veranstaltungsreihe
LOOPS is the event series of New Practice in Art and Technology in cooperation with the Berlin University Alliance, exploring current questions facing our society in a unique discursive format. Afterwards, the Bar provides a space for exchange between guests, researchers, students and the public. The accompanying LOOPS SESSIONS extend the series with workshops, performances and experimental formats.
How do performative arts intersect and reflect contemporary society and the socioeconomic and cultural situation? Delving into the possibilities of expression and performance enabled by new technologies, Fronte Vacuo (transdisciplinary performance group based in Berlin) and (sound artist, performer, and independent researcher) join us to discuss their respective practices. Join us for an evening centered around transdisciplinary collaborations between performance art and technology, bringing forth new methodologies of research and reflection.
Fronte Vacuo, a Berlin-based transdisciplinary performance group, blends body art, dance-theater, audiovisuals, and technology. Known for radical bodily expressions and intricate audience engagement, they employ human and nonhuman bodies, organic elements, AI, spatial soundscapes, and visual imagery to create chaotic biomes. Their name, an Italian phrase, symbolizes a militant front devoid of meaning, critiquing modern society's blind faith in techno-capitalism.
Luca Pagan is an Italian sound artist, performer and independent researcher. His performances explore the relationship between physical movement, sound and environment. His research is based on the perception of body movement with music as a means of expression and communication. His approach is based on the self-designing wearable technology, software and hardware, and the use of biotechnology to capture the expressiveness of performance with a focus on machine learning techniques.
