I just came back from La Gaîté Lyrique in Paris which is dedicated to “Révolutions Numériques.” It is a newly opened centre in Paris which “explores all forms of digital culture: film-making, animation film-making, theatre, dance, circus, music, visual arts, design, graphic design, motion design, musical film, architecture, computer programming, software art, web, games, fashion, etc. As well as all those which we haven’t named yet…” The current exhibition is about Post Digital Monsters as part of the Picture Plasma festival. The new centre states it “targets the 15-35 year old, digital generation, who are the main consumers and players in the field of digital culture” but during my visit the 5-10 year olds were well represented as well. I guess you’re never too young to love post digital monsters :)
The fourth floor was dedicated to DESTRUCTION ET RÉASSEMBLAGE in the form of a tribute to defunct media, circuit bending, and glitch art including installations by Dutch artist Gijs Gieskes.
