The Screen City Biennial is dedicated to presenting the moving image in public space. It explores the relation between the moving image, sound and architecture and presents artistic formats that seek to expand the borders of cinematic experience. Screen City was founded as a festival in 2013 in Stavanger, Norway, by Daniela Arriado. Since 2017 we developed Screen City to become a Biennial, in collaboration with local and international art institutions and organizations and by strengthening its research dimension.
The Screen City Biennial’s Research Program makes an investigative, disseminative and intellectual backbone to the Biennial’s program. It facilitates research on artistic practice and thinking and space for curatorial reflection. Presenting talks, discussions, publications and symposium events, the overall objective of the Research Program is to engage, develop and disseminate artistic and curatorial discourse on the expanded moving image in public space. With this program the Screen City Biennial seeks to strengthen public and intellectual knowledge on emerging and expanding moving image art forms that are continuously changing in dialogue and contingency with our communicative existence and which hold a critical potential for interference with our everyday lives in direct, real-time engagement with the urban environment and our digital infrastructural architectures.
