— an international symposium
where artists, scholars and activists

performances, discussions and
workshops will open a space to
focus on the consequences of
global creative industries policy, to
discuss alternatives and to develop
new paths for both survival and

In many countries creative
industries policy is radically
reshaping the conditions of creative
production. Simultaneously, new
technologies are increasingly
turning creative processes into
a function of big data streams,
algorithms and digital scalability.
This raises many questions: what
are the new physical, technological
and aesthetic spaces of subversion
and critique? How do creative
industry policy and big data
economies influence the idea of
artistic autonomy? And, as the
‘creative’ city mutates into the
‘smart’ city, what are appropriate
tactics and strategies for smart
interventions from below?
