[ISEA2017] Paper: Andréia Machado Oliveira, Felix Rebolledo Palazuelos, Hermes Renato Hildebrand & Tatiana Palma Guerche — Preservation of Material and Immaterial Heritage through Interactive and Collaborative Artistic Interventions


Keywords: Media Art, Heritage, Territory, Network, Interactive, Collaborative, Intervention, Narratives, Actant

The present article elaborates on the preservation of material and immaterial heritage through the production of community-based artistic propositions in Media Art in order to activate the discursive and enunciative potential of blighted urban neighbourhoods rendered invisible. We consider the media art project Rede_em_Rede 2015/2016 (Network_in_Network 2015/2016) based on the concepts of the territory in Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari and the actor network theory developed by Bruno Latour. This project builds upon and continues the work of previous community media art interventions, Aircity:arte#ocupSM 2012 and Aircity:arte#ocupSM 2013. The three projects were developed in the Vila Belga cultural and historical heritage neighbourhood of Santa Maria/RS, Brazil.
