Internationales Digitalkunst Festival
IDKF is an atypical event. It confronts conventions. An exception to traditional festivals. Eclectic, eccentric and uncurated, it introduces itself as an instance for all kind of creative expressions, gathering artists from diverse areas and disciplines that explore the conjugation of art and technology. The festival is conceived as a large-scale artistic intervention, scrutinizing the democratization of art and culture in a heightened interconnected society influenced by complex hybrid networks that convolve virtuality and reality. Seeking to rethink the way in which art should be presented and perceived, several works will be exhibited in unusual locations that escape common places e.g. art galleries and concert halls. In this sense, IDKF opens a new space to incentive and propagate creative practices beyond standards, stimulating the exchange of ideas, critical thinking, aesthetics and cultural backgrounds. An invitation for the audience to experiment with the concept of locality and different levels of perception.
IDKF 2019 offers a diversified program that includes expositions, interactive installations, live acts, concerts, Djs, gastronomy and mixology in several locations. A cooperation project between the Seoul International Computer Music Festival, Korean Electro-Acoustic Music Society and Stuttgarter Kollektiv für aktuelle Musik e.V..
