Transmedia and Remix Debate at Brazilian Digital Culture 2010, by Eduardo Navas

Image: Main Entrance of Cinemateca Brasileira.

I visited Sao Paulo Brazil on November 17th, to participate in a panel discussion for Brazilian Digital Culture 2010, organized by the Brazilian Ministry of Culture. I was invited to discuss the relationship of transmedia and Remix along with Maurício Mota (Os Alquimistas), and moderator Newton Cannito (Secretary for the Audiovisual/Ministry of Culture).  What follows is not so much a summary of the panel discussion, but rather a reflection on my views on transmedia and Remix, after evaluating my participation.  But first, I will begin by giving some general impressions of the day I spent in Sao Paulo.

As previously noted on Remix Theory, I curated an exhibition at the Cultural Center of Spain in El Salvador that brings together artists from Latin America, or artists who have ties to Latin America, and have been producing new media work since at least the mid-nineties.  The exhibit takes place from November 9, to December 17, 2010.

The exhibit takes place in two venues, the Cultural Center and the Museum of Santa Tecla.  In this post I will share brief descriptions and images of the installations that took place in the cultural Center, in subsequent posts I will share images of the exhibit at the Museum, as well as talks and performances that took place throughout the opening week.  Images of the opening of November 9, 2010, follow.

English:

A Modular Framework is an exhibition that brings together artists from Latin America, or artists who have ties to Latin America, and have been producing new media work since at least the mid-nineties, when new media and digital art began to take shape. Most of the works included in this exhibition are recent, and were chosen as examples of diverse and rigorous art practices. The artists, themselves, while they crossover to art practice at large, are pioneers in digital and new media art in their own countries, and for this reason they were invited to participate in A Modular Framework.
