For its sixth edition, Transnumériques (Transdigital), biennial of digital cultures and emergences initiated by Transcultures (Center for Digital and Sound Cultures), is deployed in Louvain-la-Neuve (Be) in partnership with the culture dept of the University of Louvain-la-Neuve and the recent Musée L where was presented the exhibition Ecritures Numériques with its two-part Cabinet of digital curiosities (gathering some twenty Belgian and international singular insallations - curator: Jacques Urbanska and Philippe Franck / Transcultures) and DISNOVATION.ORG
(curated by the eponymous international collective, which questions the propaganda of innovation).
The opening night of March 22, 2018 also featured audio performances revisiting both new and the "old media." With Transnumériques#6, Transcultures and its partners are focusing on hybrid forms in mutations that are the fruit of these encounters between creative prospective practices and contemporary technologies. While recalling the transdisciplinary ferments of the (post) digital arts, Transnumériques privileges projects, which offer, in addition to perceptive stimulations, a poetic, offbeat, committed look rather than products formatted for the techno-cultural industries or from the "hyperspectacle" of the triumphant global entertainment.
