KIBLIX 2021 / Workshops
Dina Karadžić and Vedran Gligo: Gl1t̷c̛ḩ ̸ ͢Aŕt 101
16 February, 23 February and 2 March 2021, 6–8 p.m.

Gl1t̷c̛ḩ ̸ ͢Aŕt 101 is a series of three modular 'glitch art' workshops aimed at finding, documenting, and catalyzing unusual and aesthetic flaws in digital visual file systems. Participants will learn about working with digital files, free software, and digital art creation processes based on knowledge of the concepts (format, memory, codec, program, and license) as building blocks of the modern digital ecosystem. Each workshop will begin with a brief presentation of glitch creation methods, techniques, and practices, emphasizing terminology and databending practice. The workshops will be performed by artists, hackers, and event organizers Dina Karadžić and Vedran Gligo.

You don’t need specific prior knowledge or special equipment to participate; you only need a computer with a microphone and a stable internet connection. The workshops consist of three two-hour meetings, which will take place on Tuesdays (16 February, 23 February, and 2 March) via the open platform

Participation is free of charge.
