Theme 2023:

Virtual Body of Society

Digital networks create their own, non-geopolitical structures. The need to share identities, interests and opinions connects people across countries and continents. Our aim is to look into the process of the emergence and growth of the virtual body of society and its vital functions. We are interested in questions about the future of a society whose shared neural tissue, collective memory and sensory experience are experiencing a dynamic development that also implies limitations of complexity and social fragmentation. How do digital communities actually differ in their manifestations from physical ones? How do they interpenetrate each other, and what does this interpenetration do to the real world? We are interested in the impact of the development of virtual communities on the political, social and cultural dynamics of global and local events, the implications of digitization and replication of genetic information, and other aspects of the digital transformation of society. 


About Prague Biennale 

Re-connect Art International Performance and Multimedia Art Festival: Virtual Body of Society will take place from 13 to 30 July 2023 in public spaces mainly in the centre of Prague (capital of the Czech Republic). In three consecutively launched programme blocks, it will present approximately ten live performances, a section of video installations, and an international showcase of video art works that will be presented on screens and LED panels placed in busy public places: squares and relaxation zones, libraries, cafés, arcades, shopping, cultural and community centres, railway stations, hospital waiting rooms, etc. The hybrid form of the festival combines the presentation of artworks in public spaces with the possibility of online, remote participation. This format was created in response to the conditions created by the global pandemic crisis, and our vision for the future is to continue to develop and adapt contemporary technologies for the arts.
