Call for Papers / Artwork

POST-SCREEN 2016: International Festival of Art, New Media and Cybercultures
17-18 November
Lisbon, Portugal

Extended Deadline: 30.November.2015

The Artistic Studies Research Center (CIEBA) of the Faculty of Fine Arts of Lisbon University (FBAUL) and the Research Centre for Education and Development (CeiED) of the Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias (ULHT) invites you to submit a proposal for a paper and/ or an artwork to the upcoming POST-SCREEN 2016: International Festival of Art, New Media and Cybercultures to be held in November, in Lisbon, Portugal.


The PSF2016: Intermittence+Interference is focused in the themes of photography, film, museology and public space, in connection with the idea of post-screen underlying the festival’s name and purpose, which is to generate a dialogue between the artistic and technological fields, through multidisciplinary studies that contribute critically both to research and artistic practice.

Starting from the three areas already appointed, this project will address a set of topics related with the media, the proliferation and the unfolding of images in cyberspace, the new modalities of screens and their implications in spectatorship and audiences. The substantial increase of urban screens is also a potential field of investigation and reflection on new forms of interaction and collaborative environments in public spaces. The projection of light on urban surfaces arises, largely, as a way to create spaces for collective critical thought through which the video serves as a means for communication and not for consumption, often conveying a sense of political inquiry.

In addition to these aspects, issues related with algorithms, the decoding of images through different outputs, or the new imagery offered, for example, by satellite images, or even the possibilities generated by the virtual reality, are some of the themes to be addressed in this second edition of the PSF, taking into consideration new proposals and approaches which may arise during the course of the project.

The topics of interest for submissions include, but are not limited to:

New aesthetics in photography

  • Post-photography and hybrid image
