Make Art

Organised by Goto10, Make Art is a festival dedicated to the integration of "free and open source" software in electronic art.
Starting the 24th of January 2006, artists and programmers will take the audience on a journey through this emerging culture via concerts, conferences, software presentations, exhibitions and a workshop.

The topics discussed during lectures will concentrate on the love-hate relationship between open source culture and post-industrial societies.

Make Art constitutes a tool for reflecting on the
propagation of free software in artistic creation and we
want it to be a view onto the social, political and economic myths and realities linked to this phenomenon.
