The pop-up CREATIVATE CINEMA tells the stories of creatives, artists, designers, technologists and futurists from around the world, looking at how they are blurring lines and shattering traditional boundaries. The Creativate Cinema will include both screenings of documentaries and feature films as well as a showreel demonstrating some of the exciting work being done by artists in studios, garages, classrooms and galleries across the globe.
Our featured films will showcase three works from artist duo and researchers Lancel/Maat, who ask questions such as, can I touch you online, can we measure intimacy, can we envision and negotiate new familiar and unfamiliar, hybrid encounters of touch? Lancel/Maat explores the tension between embodied intimacy, proximity, privacy and trust in current bio(techno)logical entanglement with (non-)human others.
Special thanks to #cocreateSA, an initiative of Kingdom of the Netherlands in South Africa, for sponsorship of the Creativate programme and for the Lancel/Maat films.
A number of bursaries to Creativate events are available.
