Digital Media Art Festival
Nov 6 – Nov 29

Deconfine is an online media art festival with artists, curators and researchers from France and South Asia. It seeks to foster regional cooperation within the subcontinent and between South Asia and Europe. It examines the evolving, dynamic and multi-faceted nature of human – technology relationships, and showcases works and initiatives that leverage the potential of technology to reflect on that relationship and other social issues. The featured artists work with a variety of mediums and tools including video, A.R., sound, performance, A.I., data and so on. This is a one-of-a-kind collaboration between artists and the organizations involved, resulting in South Asia’s first purely online media art exhibition, making media art more accessible than ever to South Asian audiences.
