Who gives a shit about art?

What is the function of art in the 21st century? Are there still audiences at all in the context of an omnipresent digital media culture between Instagram, Twitter, online gaming and Mark Zuckerberg’s upcoming METAverse? Or is especially art production only an identity programme for an aging small social elite?

What are innovative narrative formats for an everyday life that is experienced as hybrid? And which new ways of storytelling can be established? Questions for our transmedia narration LAB. A research project between dance, film, critical theory, gaming and 3D scripting that searches for new ways to talk about now. To investigate a different and diverse dramaturgical praxis in the context of high art and mass media. Who gives a shit about art? A transdisciplinary research project by ear - the Ekeby Art and Resarch Center in 2022/2023.
