Uroboros 2023: Feral Bodies Synthetic Rituals

The 2023 festival is around the corner, save the date friendsss 🐍🐍🐍

2 Nov Thu 12:00 CEST

9 Dec Sat 20:00 CEST

This year with the main theme Feral Bodies, Synthetic Rituals the 2023 Uroboros offers a collaborative program of art & design research events experimenting with feral ways of stimulating eco-social change.

The 2023 festival unfolds in two acts, starting in 2-4 November in Petrohradská Kolektiv and continuing in 7-9 December in various venues around Prague, as a collaboration with local Uroboros allies.

Situated in the premises of Petrohradská, just before the venue gets demolished, the first festival act takes the form of a polytemporal feral body: liminal, shapeshifting, and oscillating between multiple fluid genres and uncertain space-times.

Within the second Uroboros act, we organise five experimental workshops together with the Fresh Eye platform and the Fotograf festival exploring the feral nature of synthetic media in the context of multispecies-AI co-creation.

Presented in this collaged format, the festival presents a variety of performative rituals, dérives (drifts), sharing circles, listening encounters, living installations, and other experimental engagements addressing themes in more-than-human care, synthetic sensing, algorithmic agencies, ocean literacy, feral data, forest futures, and more.

All festival events are participatory and open to creative engagements of anyone interested in these topics.
