Description:
VIROSE is a non-profit organization dedicated to art and media technology based in Porto, Portugal. It gathers artists, programmers, architects and others and runs a server with several areas, including an e-zine [http://www.virose.pt/vector] and free hosting areas. Since the beginning of the project, in 1997, the main question was to understand digital arts in the broader sense of art. The problems of net.art, digital art or whatever are no so different, and even less opposed, to the ontological question that put together (and apart) art and technic. Is it possible to speak of about a plural of the arts without its singular? And is it possible to sustain the singularity of each art without its plural?
Expertise: art, society / public domain, criticism, research, activism, architecture, performing arts, design, music, software, multimedia
