    RENEWABLE FUTURES 2015 Conference
    Transformative Potential of Art in the Age of Post-Media

    The 1st edition of new academic art and science conference series, complemented by the RIXC annual festival programme.

    October 8–10, 2015, Riga

    The Renewable Futures is a new conference series in the Baltic Sea and North European region that aims to invent new avenues for more sustainable and imaginative future developments. It will shape new contact zones between traditionally separated domains – art and science, academic research and independent creative practices, sustainable businesses and social engagement in the 21st century.

    The 1st conference edition will take place in Riga, from October 8–10, 2015, and it will primarily focus on exploring the transformative potential of art in the post-media conditions. Today, according to several voices – Rosalind Krauss, Lev Manovich, Peter Weibel and Domenico Quaranta – we have entered the post-media age; there is no any single medium anymore that dominates in contemporary media art practices that are rather engaged with contemporaneity and critical thinking. The huge diversity of "post-media art" was profoundly explored also in the Fields exhibition (Riga 2014, http://fields.rixc.lv), curated by Raitis Smits, Armin Medosch and Rasa Smite. The Fields showed that art in post-media conditions contains highly transformative and visionary potential. However, symbolic and aesthetic qualities, as well as critical, investigative and confrontational aspects also proved to be just as important for "post-media art" to maintain a line between physical and mental, realities and utopias.
