For the first time, the roBOt Festival of Bologna flies to Buenos Aires, for a new amazing adventure: on Saturday 6th December, “Usina del Arte” in Buenos Aires is hosting roBOtBA, the preview-event that anticipates the showcase production in fall 2015. The event, promoted by the cultural association Shape, in cooperation with the Municipality of Bologna, Alma Mater Studiorum- University of Bologna, Representación en la Republica Argentina and the Goethe-Institut Buenos Aires, is made possible thanks to the strong synergy between the two Creative Cities Bologna and Buenos Aires, together with their respective universities.
The presentation day at Usina del Arte, a cultural centre located in a former Italian-Argentinian factory, is a sort of synthesis of the different patterns characterizing the Italian edition of the festival, making up the rich programme of the Argentinian showcase, in a few months. Live music sets, workshops, video-installations, children’s activities and video projections will be the variety of the artistic proposals of the festival, which was developed, for the year 2014, around the topic #lostmemories: digital memory and its ability to influence the remembering .
roBOtBA will also offer the chance to introduce call4roBOt, the international call addressed to those who want to apply for an original artwork. The aim of the call – free participation, deadline March 6th 2015 – is to find out artworks inspired to the topic of #lostmemories: installations, video and animation projects, performances, photography, design and self-productions which are able to explorate the relationship between memory and its devices.
