BFX Academic Conference will return in October 2017

Our two day Academic Conference will return in 2017, inviting students, academics and anyone interested in the more theoretical aspects of creative practises or production methods to attend.

2015′s theme was ANALOGUE TO POST-DIGITAL. The BFX Conference is underpinned by a strong belief in the benefits interdisciplinary discourse, and aims to create a platform for these exchanges to take place around the field of digital moving images and related technologies. Contemporary still and moving images and their related practices sit in the interstices of the analogue and digital. The BFX conference invites participants to consider the trajectories of these movements as we engage in a discourse of the ‘post-digital’ in still and moving image.

Embedded within these fields are a range of themes such as: memory and the archive, media archaeology, hybridity, intermedia practices, folksonomies and virtual curatorships, the network, new pedagogues and education design. The conference welcomes approaches that consider the continuities and breaks in technologies and practices, as well as the range of possibilities that may be inspired by thinking about the post-digital.

The conference focused on both academic discourse and artistic practice, and has included artist roundtables as part of their program.
