Festival für elektronische Künste

20.10 - 11.11.2017

GENERATE!° addresses contemporary tendencies of art that are based on the interdisciplinary use of electronic media or on the application of digital technologies. GENERATE!° is especially interested in the interrelations between art, research, and technology against its sociopolitical background. Particular attention is put on works that are dedicated to the reflection on generative processes of production, their conditions and their respective algorithmically controlled outputs.

GENERATE!° as a comprehensive programmatic title implies both the artistic-technical processes as well as the individual question about the possibilities to be creative. Thus, the festival intends to enable a creative and critical discourse regarding the aesthetical, sociopolitical, and economic conditions and effects that are caused by media and information technology of the 21st century. GENERATE!° seeks to explore and shape the ways and forms of aesthetic practice which promote and facilitate a critical and self-determined participation in these developments.

GENERATE!° Festival for Electronic Arts takes place for the third time in changing conditions, following the two festivals of the previous years and in the succession of the light and video arts festival series 2010-2014 as well as several previous media arts festivals.

The three main elements of the festival are an exhibition section, a series of workshops and lectures, as well as a performance program, spread over several locations in the city, each with its own focus.

Shedhalle Tübingen has created a forum for contemporary arts located in the former slaughterhouse quarter. Since its foundation in 2001 it realizes exhibitions, artist residencies, art festivals, concerts, workshops and experimental events with the participation of regional, national, and international artists, and links these with the local art scene.

Since February 2016, the Shedhalle is used as a temporary home for refugees. This gives us the opportunity to find new alternating locations for exhibitions and events in town and the surrounding region. The new guests, as artists in residence, are included in current projects. At the end of June 2017 a partial re-move-in of our non-profit art association in the Shedhalle began. An overview of the current program can be found at
