In the beginning there was noise – thus writes Rosa Menkman in her influential Glitch Studies Manifesto (2011), a work that laid the foundations for the critical exploration of art works that incorporate noise & error as a means to examine and interrupt the normative function of the image and the media itself.

These works do not only present pleasurable aesthetic objects (because, yes, dirty glitch can be indeed very pretty) – they also act as a magnifying glass drawing attention to the material basis of the technology used to reproduce moving images, whether it be celluloid, analogue video or digital apparatus.

Using various means to distort the recognizable imagery, they bring us exciting, vibrant & noisy alternative visions that radically challenge the dominating clean, sterile imagery of contemporary digital cinema. As such, they pose fundamental questions regarding the political nature of technology, image and the reality itself.

The selection divided in two blocks will showcase 16 eye- & mind-bending contemporary audiovisual works that offer a journey through a myriad of creative & critical uses of glitch followed by the Q&A discussion with the artists.
