CALLING ALL ANALOGUE ARTISTS – FUTURESHOCK 2017

Posted by Craig Morrow, 3rd February 2017, 17:52pm

Introduction FUTURESHOCK is Lincoln Performing Arts Centre’s response to Frequency 2017, Lincoln’s Festival of Digital Culture, which takes place across the city 20-29 October (frequency.org.uk). From the end of September, leading up to and during Frequency Festival, we will be exploring the role of analogue or ‘obsolete’ technologies within contemporary performance practice. Calling All Analogue Artists FUTURESHOCK is an exploration of the on-going potential of analogue technology in arts and culture. Throughout the fringe we aim to celebrate the value of ‘old/obsolete’ non-digital processes through sited work, public interventions and performance events, these can be rough-and-ready repurposed artworks or more polished integrations.  The fringe is not intended to place value-judgements on digital and non-digital practices, nor set them in opposition; rather we view FUTURESHOCK as a forum to promote the benefit of alternative and forgotten media within a wide, diverse palette of creative possibilities. Indeed, we are particularly interested in artworks where digital and non-digital technologies operate in a dialogue to explore the human experience. We are looking for works that either actively or subtly, addresses the theme of Displacement, echoing the wider focus of Frequency Festival 2017 and that engage with our diverse communities through accessible and inclusive content.
