Performing Media is an evolutionary concept, it implies a new sensitivity that allows us to interpret digital innovation as an expansion of communication possibilities, to use technologies and not to be used. It is a whole world of creative practices that originates in the field of digital cultures and in the past research theater has already been perfected in the media, both radio and video. A phenomenon that then extended to the most diverse articulations, between performance and multimedia. The book is about experiences, it looks to the past but it is about the future.
The talk will be a particular multimedia event, it will see the authors (Gaia Riposati and Massimo Di Leo) solicit the protagonist Carlo Infante remotely (online) in a journey that will move through the themes and materials of Performing Media – a remote future. Carlo Infante’s journey between Memory of the Avant-garde and Digital Transition, book/librido edited by Gaia Riposati and Massimo Di Leo published by Editoria & Spettacolo (2022) will focus attentions with video projections on the contexts that host the event and which are evoked both in the book and in the “librido” with links.
Words and ideas “in projection” in a conversation innervated by video repertoires (on significant moments, performances and installations, of the avant-garde and digital innovation), a three-way dialogue with many echoes, listened to by an artificial intelligence that will eventually say its own.
The conversation will continue with a peripatetic reflection in a discussion with all participants.
