Dear friends of Interface Cultures,
You are cordially invited to celebrate with us ‘Sankt Interface Day’ on 17th December 2021.
‘Sankt Interface’ is an artistic project organized by Interface Cultures which serves also as the annual celebration of our department. It is not a coincidence that it is celebrated around every ninth of December, the same day of 1968 when Douglas Engelbart did his ultra-famous conference, known today as “The Mother of All Demos”.
At Sankt Interface, academic conferences, artistic performances, exhibitions, concerts and a “Computer Mouse Award” conform a celebration transforming into a happening in which students, professors, and friends of Interface Cultures participate at the same level.

This year’s event includes two keynotes:

“Eco-Visionaries” by Karin Ohlenschläger, who is curator, art critic and previous artistic director at LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial in Gijón and Media Lab Prado;

followed by “A Pandemic Crisis Seen from the Screen: Digital art and electronic literature as reflection on pandemic platform culture” by Søren Pold, PhD and Associate Professor of digital aesthetics at Aarhus university.

Sankt Interface 2021 also includes art performances, the sixth edition of the infamous ‘Computer Mouse Award‘ and a series of live music performances with electronic instruments, as well as some hot DJ sessions, which will close the night. It’s all a must see!
Sankt Interface is organized by Cesar Escudero Andaluz and the Interface Cultures community.
