Transmedia playful aesthetics: arts based research, playful media, gaming, participation and civic engagement
Public Opening Lecture by Patrícia Gouveia, Portugal
Moderated by Dr. Joachim Umlauf, Director of the Goethe-Institute

During the public opening lecture we aim at displaying concrete examples of arts-based research and playful media that will challenge the legacy of both modernism and postmodernism in contemporary arts. Additionally, we will focus on how this subject has contributed to shaping our current environment and practices in the XXIst century transmedia playful aesthetics.

Overcoming popular modernism through gaming, participation and civic engagement we explore recurrent discourses that disconnect the nineties digital revolution from contemporary arts practices. Our goal is to promote an understanding of the current transmedia playful aesthetics, which no longer supports the artificial divide between news or media arts and contemporary arts.

Changes in the intercultural museum and in higher education can no longer sustain this segregation, which is a product of old and new media specificity accompanied by narrow notions of specialization. On the contrary, we intend to introduce the integration of different perspectives, means and technologies with an understanding of a common ground for both arts and sciences.
