[ISEA2017] Introduction: SUB-THEME Media Art, Landscape and Heritage

Introductory Statement

SUB-THEME: Media Art, Landscape and Heritage

ISEA2017 will take place in a region in Colombia known as the Coffee Cultural Landscape, declared as a world heritage site by UNESCO. We invite work that reflects on the conflict between media and heritage. How do artists and designers include heritage in their critical thinking and aesthetic decisions? How could media art help disseminate cultural values around peace? Does media art have the capacity to preserve heritage? Does conservation or cultural transformation generate conflict?
