Flusser 100 Festival Robion, May 2020

Come celebrate the work and life of Vilém Flusser on the occasion of his 100th birthday with a centennial week of philosophical discussions, exhibitions and performances in Robion and the surrounding area of the Provence in southeastern France, Flusser‘s selected place of residence from the mid 1970s.

At the interface between science, art and media literacy, we want to reprocess Flusser’s work for the here and now.
We encourage all Flusserians and thinkers of communication, language and technology to join us to discuss, explore and enjoy Flusser’s work and legacy.

This open call seeks innovative and critical submissions from thinkers in all areas of study traversing the fields of communication, media, arts and related theoretical disciplines.
Presentations should be connected to the work and life of Vilém Flusser.

Please send your presentation proposal with an abstract of max. 200 words and a short biography to flusser100[at]flusser.club.de.

Application deadline: 15 February.

The Flusser 100 Festival Robion is a collaboration of the Association Cavaillon Luberon Provence (ACLP), West Den Haag and the Flusser Club e.V., supported by the Vilém Flusser Archive and the dedicated community around the Flusser Studies

Flusser’s work has recently experienced an upsurge in interest in France, due to several recent published translations.
The Flusser 100 festival could be an opportunity to help catalyse a new generation of philosophical and artistic interest in Flusser’s thinking especially in France and encourage more exchange between the media studies communities of France and Germany.

We are open to all proposals, for lectures, discussions, or other activities.

Please send us a message with your idea and the days you expect to be with us in Robion.
The Association Cavaillon Luberon Provence is working with us to help organize accommodation and travel for those coming.
You can provide information to them
on the form here with your details and we will get back to you.
