About this Event

Glitch Western Film and video games

In this workshop, I will present Glitch Western Film and video games in which participants will dig into and discuss how to create new genres and define theorypractices that confront overdetermination and question overcoding. Glitch Art, the art of surprise, is a gift delivered to us from the ways in which our technological systems behave unpredictably, malfunction, and/or misbehave. Glitch artists capture and perform glitch, glitch affects, and aesthetics. From personal cinema, art films, to personal dynamic media, digital and computational approaches, I explore and explain how individuals and small groups create artworks that meet the challenges of our technological times. This workshop includes screenings of experimental works that span my 20+ year career of making unstable media, close readings, and discussion in the film-talk workshop format.

This workshop is limited to 30 participants.

Jon Cates is an internationally recognised founder in the field of Glitch Art. Cates founded festivals, open archives, and educational programmes for these artistic approaches over the last 20+ years. He created the concept of Dirty New Media Art in 2005 and defined the term postglitch in 2012. As a professor at several international New Media and Media Art Histories programmes, Cates teaches at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Donau-Universität Krems, Austria and NØ SCHOOL in France. He is the first full-time tenured New Media Faculty hire at School of the Art Institute where he developed the New Media Art curriculum. His programme is now one of the Best New Media Programmes, ranked top 5, in Best Fine Arts Schools. Cates is the curator of exhibitions including the acclaimed Chicago New Media exhibition and catalogue, a featured program of Art Design Chicago and Ars Electronica Festival.
