REMAKING the real

REMAKING the real is a three-year series of programs considering how artists, media-makers and art and media theorists engage with the real: envisioning, re-envisioning, and aesthetically remaking images and narratives of reality so as to bring new possibilities into existence. Programming will address subjects as diverse as:

• Imagining and re-imagining "real stories" in the creative space of documentary practice
• Mapping and shaping the both persistent and changing realities of marginalized cultures
• Finding "the real" in mixed, "virtual," and immersive realities
• Engaging with the fantastical, the dreamlike, the "unreal"
