ABOUT GLITCH at RUA RED brings together a selection of Ireland and Europe’s leading artists, theorists, researchers, curators and artist groups working in media and technology to explore contemporary cultural and critical issues, both emerging and established, that arise from artists’ investigations into digital technology. This year, GLITCH presents a series of exhibitions, taking place both online and in the gallery, that examines how digital artists are engaging with and responding to the current economic, political, and cultural factors that shape the Internet. The festival will discuss and ex-
plore how the practice of the digital artist is in transition, not only due to the development of digital technologies, but also because digital artists are increasingly informed by offline factors that affect how the Internet, as a creative platform, is being developed. GLITCH 2013 features eight workshops, a Symposium, Oh Internetz (a short films showcase) and a closing party with BBQ featuring live performances from the best of Irish producers. Exhibiting artists include: Casey Reas, Marius Watz, FIELD, Pixel Noizz - David Szauder, Evan Roth and Constant Dullaart
