Since ADAF – Athens Digital Arts Festival will not take place as usual in May due to the Corona crisis and in May the next collaboration with ADAF was scheduled – NewMediaFest2020 would like to open a virtual version of the museum’s darkroom by presenting the screening programs of the previous collaborations between 2006 and 2018, and honouring the long and trustful networking

Athens Digital Arts Festival

Athens Digital Arts Festival (ADAF) is an annual International Festival that takes place every May in Athens with the aim to bring together the digital arts community with a broader audience. The festival was established in 2005, under the title Athens Video Art Festival, as an initiative of the non-profit organization Multitrab Productions. Athens Video Art Festival was founded in 2005 with the intention to offer a platform to video art, installations and live performances. Within the following 10 years, the Festival gradually evolved and included more art forms, such as web art, interactive installations, animation, digital image, performances, applications and workshops, exploring creative aspects of technology and digital culture. In 2012, the Festival introduced the subtitle “International Festival of Digital Arts & New Media” in order to communicate the wide spectrum of its activities and events. As of January 2015, the Festival changed its name into Athens Digital Arts Festival.

Short History

The first edition of Athens Digital Arts Festival took place in April 2005 at the cultural space Thira Technis, in Athens. Although it was newly introduced, the festival received 180 artworks submissions and hosted 137 of them with the aim of supporting innovative artistic expression.

From 2007 to 2011, the main venue of the festival was the cultural space “Technopolis” of the Municipality of Athens where 1,544 artworks from local and international artists were hosted. Through these years the festival presented artworks in its three main categories: video art, installations and live performances, and in the new ones such as web art, animation and digital image, which were introduced in 2009. It also collaborated with other great festivals, such as Transmediale (DE), Cologne OFF (DE), LPM (IT), videoholica (BG), IN-EDIT (ES), onedotzero (UK), art:screen (SE) and more.

4.10th anniversary

In the years 2012 and 2013 the festival expanded its boundaries, presenting its activities in the historic center of Athens with the purpose to map and shape the cultural potential of the district. Under the titles “Visualize Athens” (2012) and “Living Athens” (2013) the festival contributed to the revitalization of the urban artistic dynamics and the aesthetic reformation of the city. This initiative was supported by a significant number of volunteers, Greek Municipalities and international festivals and artists.

In 2014, celebrating its 10-year anniversary, the Festival returned to the cultural space “Technopolis” of Municipality of Athens, as an honor to the venue that had for years hosted the festival’s initiatives. The festival completed ten years of successful organizations, presenting a program that went beyond traditional boundaries between disciplines and media, offering perspectives on creative crossovers between technology and digital arts. Some of the highlights were the live performances “Abandonded cities” by Hauschka and “Late Speculation” by Nonotak as well as the installation “80 prepared dc-motors, cotton balls, cardboard boxes” by Zimoun.

In this framework, it expanded its spectrum in eight official categories, installations, web art, video art, animation, performances, digital image, workshops and music under the theme “Public Space_s”. Always engaged with the goal to revitalize the center of the city and its artistic dynamic, ADAF 2015 took place in the historic center of Athens having as its main venue “Diplarios School” as well as two main squares of Athens for parallel activities. The festival hosted the works of 150 artists from Greece and abroad, who shared their own narratives with the audience, redefining the notion of public space both in the digital environment and urban space.

About the program
Reminiscence of Anthropocene – is the most recent collaborative project between Agricola de Cologne and ADAF – Athens Digital Arts Festival, the composition of 10 videos (audio-visual works) forming the basis for a viewer’s reflection, generating a particular image of something many people are identifying themselves with according to individual experiences. These experiences are independent from location or nationality, insofar, as a part of the whole, the artists nationality Germany, Spain, USA, Israel, Brazil Denmark, Finland stand for the diversity of individual experiences leading to the individual artistic expression.
The reminiscence of the Anthropocene is allowing a kind of pessimistic view on the human nature and its influence, domination and manipulation of the natural environment and the social context with other human individuals, wildlife and flora, the social responsibility of the
individual for the individual and the Whole. Often artists do not only describe a kind of status quo, but give even creative perspectives to the post-Anthropocene era, whatever it may be.
Differently than other ideological models, in the given case, the post-Anthropocene is not leading to a fusion of the human and the machine, but is rather recalling “ancient” human values like indigenous people – however, threatened with extinct by human greed – are still practicing them, based on mutual social responsibility and solidarity. That this is not a mere illusion is showing the radically changed people’s behaviour during the Corona crisis, but as soon as they do not feel longer endangered, they immediately forget the values they propagated short time before. So, Corona wasn’t the worst case yet, to make most people really rethink, and the real end of Anthropocene might come sometimes rather sooner than later by a another global disaster.

Short note
By Wilfried Agricola de Cologne
The video works selected for this retrospective compilation focus on some very relevant aspects of “art & moving images”, the experimenting with technology, forms, formats and contents, which is manifesting itself in a kind of hybrid category format, one might call “experimental documentary”. The compilation would like to present some exemplary works by artists from different countries and cultures, who make their personal perceptions, philosophical and artistic points of views the basis for a discussion with the viewer. Although as videos from their character linear, all of them include a strong interactive component by provoking the attention, concentration and activation of the viewer.

Bareback – serial DIScharge
video
Wilfried Agriciola de Cologne – Bareback – serial DIScharge, 2007, 6:00
The experimental film tells the story of a homeless person, who lost its identity in all the traumatic experiences it was undergoing. Again, Agricola de Cologne uses the form of the allegorical representation for pointing to essential questions of human existence. All people are homeless in on or the other way, most however, suffer from it without being aware of it. The film is a mirror of our time which has lost its roots.

Truth- Paradise Found
video
Wilfried Agriciola de Cologne – Truth- Paradise Found, 2004: 3:00
The video tells the story of the human desire to be as close to truth as possible. But who ever will succeed while living a life dominated by the fast running time and endless searching?
If there is any paradise, then monks or people really resting within themselves find a paradise close to truth close to GOD. But it is only truth people are believing in. Is there absolute truth?
The video consists of three sections, a spiritual and a physical section and the acting level, the artist who is filming the scene, an intruder who become witness of a ritual of truth.
This basic video was filmed in 2003 at the Rila Monastery, the spiritual centre of Bulgaria.
