ARS
CAMPUS IL


Collaborations have played and continue to play a major role in the creation, production, participation and manifestation of New Media Art and Technology. This year Ars Campus generates a rare opportunity for the collaborative interaction between nine leading academic Institutions in Israel.
Fueled by creativity, trans-disciplinary acts and surrounded by real existential dilemmas, students and faculty artists bring forth the encounter of diverse and sometime polar approaches to the education and manifestation of arts and technology in Israel.
Through the exhibition, the open workshops and the research of experimental performances we invite you to experience different paradigms and various educational process, as currently lived and debated in israeli universities.
