SIMULTAN [media arh-kahyv] —
The SIMULTAN [media arh-kahyv] proposes the (re)constitution of an online database, a digital archive based mainly on the video works presented at the Simultan festival, but also of other documentary materials (video and audio) starting with 2005 and until now.
SIMULTAN.org is an artists-run organization founded in 2005, acting as an open platform for interdisciplinary projects, research and artistic experimentations.
The organization is running (until 2005) an annual festival called SIMULTAN, dedicated to video art, experimental music and sound and also developing research based or site-specific projects, public space interventions, curating exhibitions, live events, talks or workshops.
The themes and methods include: stylistic eclecticism, the relationship between man and automatization, recycling or ecological subjects, dry – digital lyricism, the fusion of acoustic and electronic instruments, expanded cinema, live jovial sound collages, reflecting on the political aspects of sound.
