CYFEST-15 in Yerevan was dedicated to (anti)fragility of human and non-human body, biological, social and cyberspaces, stories and scenarios of the future as well as confrontations and relationships with the world in a state of transition.
New structures are appearing, adapting to the current world’s dynamic nature and resisting violence. They are launched by the disruption of traditional systems from sociopolitical cataclysms, eradications of the displacement of trauma, and losses.
In the works selected for this program, the artists reexamine notions common to us: language, motherland, home, nature, matter. They do it by deconstructing and rebuilding their personal stories and documentary evidence through the use of performative practice, verbal and nonverbal communication, digitizing and 3D modeling of their surroundings or by algorithms of computer-assisted instruction and artificial intelligence.
