From a gender perspective

How do women contribute in research, technological developments and new concepts to rebalance our environmental relationship with the planet, shift the hierarchical axis of anthropocentrism and contribute to the de-construction (dissolution) of identities. ECOSS, challenges conventional narratives and presents an interactive approach to new stage languages ​​and to expanding transversal territories, where technology is presented as a way to reinvent the live arts.

An unprecedented, unclassifiable and visionary digital culture, which encourages the encounter with the unexpected.

Post Covid19 contextualization

This lockdown and the consequent preventive measures also implied, by necessity, that the audience directed their cultural consumption to the offer on internet. The digital space is now an important space for the production, exhibition and consumption of culture. This entails the emergence of new spaces and new online exhibition formats. It is for this context that the ECOSS festival decided to intervene in the digital space, directing part of its program to the digital platform ecoss.barcelona, ​​where the public can access to the festival’s contents from their domestic space. More than ever, live cultural events coexist with cultural offers on the internet. It is a moment of digitization of culture and an opportunity for innovation, renewal and advancement. Today, culture can and should be a motor for the technological transformation of society. ECOSS offers a cultural program in a double format: live and online. A festival where you can live, from a gender perspective, a transdisciplinary experience to establish deeper relationships between technology, performing arts, movement, text, video, sound and live interaction with digital data. During 4 days, different international guests will debate and present shows, showcases and demo conferences of their research and artistic creations, to explain in a participatory way processes, challenges and mechanisms of development of their projects. The conference will also feature 2 theoretical-practical training laboratories around research and innovation, applied to Bio-art and new tele-distributed technologies.
