Who gives a damn 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 METAverse? Or is especially art production only an identity programme for an aging social elite?

What are innovative narrative formats for an hybrid everyday life? 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 between high art and mass media. Who gives a damn about art? A transdisciplinary research project by ear - the Ekeby Art and Research Center in 2022/2023.
