The project aims at creating and presenting new collaborative art works at European level, inspired by pioneering art and media culture. The project is based on a series of research carried out in recent years by MONOSKOP, a group of theorists engaged in the study of the social context of historical evolution in the media arts, especially in Central and Eastern Europe. Analyzes of the socio-poetic conditions of art and technology from the 1960s to 2000 are based on experiments in the avant-garde, performing arts, video art, experimental music, sound art and media theory. REMAKE consists of a series of workshops, artistic residencies, public shows, exhibitions, multimedia proformats and theoretical presentations in Bratislava, Banska Bystrica, Cluj, Prague, Nantes.
In 2011, the AltArt Foundation organized an international residence in Cluj, where artists Aleksandra Hriszfeld (PL) created the Infotainment multimedia installation – a reinterpretation of Guy Debord’s The Society of Spectacle (1973).
