Emergences festival
new artistic forms and new media
Sept. 29th till Oct.1st 2006

Maison de la Villette
///// Performances | Concerts | Installations | Shows /////// 
//////////////// Conferences | Works in progress /// 
International festival dedicated to electronic cultures and emerging
artistic forms, Emergences brings together, every year in Paris, French
and international actors in digital creation (cultural centers, art
groups, research labs, multimedia production firms...) all gathered
around a prolific and international artistic program at the crossroad
between performing & visual arts, multimedia, design, architecture and
electronic music.
This fourth edition of the festival asks the question of artistic
diversion of everyday objects by invinting artists to express their
position vis-à-vis the market place of the information society (video
game consoles, cell phoning, GPS, web services, videoconferencing...)
and especialy the video game culture.
The program is revolves around evening events at la Maison de la
Villette: shows, music lives, performances, animated films inspired by
video games and twisting their codes and esthetics; around an artistic
process dedicated to the "Game art" which will spread from la Maison de
la Villette to the Cité des sciences et de l'industrie thus connecting
the two spaces. At daytime, conferences and works in progress are going
to supplement this artistic programming.
Lastly, somewhere between Paris and Strasbourg, Emergences is once again
getting off its territorial borders to develop arty ties with its
partner "Les Nuits Electroniques de l'Ososphère", a festival in
Strasbourg which takes place over the same period: simultaneously
program network creations and performances, numerical experiments, live
retransmissions and ephemeral radio in the two events.
All in all, they are more than 30 artists who are to participate to this
new edition of Emergences : 
Marcel.lí Antúnez Roca, Marnix de Nijs, Yan Duyvendak, //////////fur///,
Habbo Hotel, MEC (Motards En Colère), the art group Exyzt,...
Best regards,
Dedale’s team
Emergences festival is organized by Dedale and funded by the French
Ministry of Culture, the « Région Ile-de-France » and the city of Paris.
