Extended submission deadline: 15 February 2022.
xCoAx is an exploration of the intersection where computational tools and media meet art and culture, in the form of a multi-disciplinary enquiry on aesthetics, computation, communication and the elusive X factor that connects and characterises them all.
The focus of xCoAx is on the unpredictable overlaps between creative freedom and algorithmic rules, between human nature and machine technology, aimed towards new directions in aesthetics.
xCoAx has been an occasion for international audiences to exchange ideas in search for interdisciplinary synergies between computer scientists, artists, media practitioners, and theoreticians at the thresholds between digital arts and culture.
Starting in 2013 in Bergamo, xCoAx has so far taken place also in Porto, Glasgow, Lisbon, Madrid, Milan, and Graz.
xCoAx 2022 will take place in Coimbra, Portugal.
However, building on our experience of the CoViD-19 pandemic, part of the event will be made available online. We will closely monitor the evolving situation and more details will follow.
xCoAx 2022’s keynote speakers are Winnie Soon and Andreas Broeckmann.
