Post-Screen research project
The Post-Screen: International Festival of Art, New Media and Cybercultures was an event part of the POST-SCREEN research project designed and developed within the Cyberart section of the Artistic Studies Research Center (CIEBA) based at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon (FBA-UL).
This research project combined various areas of research within the practice and theoretic fields, on the basis of the idea of post-screen. The prefix post- intended to propose an ontological reflection about the screen in order to question and provide multiple perspectives regarding the way our visual culture is affected by the use of screens in our everyday lives, whether in domestic or public spaces, and the way the use of new technologies are set as a powerful tool for artistic practices.
Thus, the term post-screen reflected the idea of something that is beyond but not yet necessarily surpassed, recognizing an idea of a subsequent moment, that considers the past, the present and the future, in which the screen appears as a central figure, as a theme, as a substance and a vehicle for heterogeneous practices related to new media and cybercultures.
