Abstract

Panel Description

Art Hack Practice: Critical Intersections of Art, Innovation and the Maker Movement

Art hacking is a term that seeks to describe how pervasive technologies continue to disrupt traditional and hierarchical boundaries between the arts, innovation and society. As hacking, DIY and making culture continues to shape both cultural and corporate agendas, and policy, artists and curators working within these contexts are developing new working practices, and value systems that respond to the modalities of interdisciplinary creative practice.

In their new book “Art Hack Practice: Critical Intersections of Art, Innovation and the Maker Movement” Bradbury and O’ Hara have brought together twenty-six international authors who situate artists working within maker culture at the front and centre, rather than existing on the fringe of serious art, design and innovation practices. This panel will explore the ways in which artists and curators are exploring the tensions between territories, disciplines and sectors by brokering new ways of working between them.

The panel will be facilitated by Dr. Suzy O’ Hara co-editor of Art Hack Practice: Critical Intersections of Art, Innovation and the Maker Movement.

Participants: Nora O’Murchu (IE), Jasmin Grimm (DE), Yidi Tsao (DE/HK)
Facilitator: Dr Suzy O’Hara (IE/UK)
