CZIRP CZIRP – EXPERIMENTAL AND SONIC ARTS
czirp czirp – experimental and sonic arts is run by researcher and curator Lona Gaikis and artist Milena Georgieva.
Like the song of a bird, czirp czirp acts through nomadic and ephemeral cultural events. It is an independent and not-for-profit cultural project that supports, produces and communicates experimental music, sound and digital art.
Our aim is to present artistic approaches that echo current developments in digital technologies. We want to critically reflect upon the use of new media, computer code and algorithmic processes, and to encourage participation via interactive concepts, to share this engagement with a broader public. Transient mediums like music, video, performance and live experiences aid to embed approaching technological, social and environmental challenges in a discursive setting.
The project is run by a group of artists and academics from various fields. It serves as a platform to introduce vibrant scenes from non-institutionalized and experimental artistic practices to the next generation of young intellectuals and culturally engaged people. We equally seek to address sections of the population who have been alienated from the art world. Therefore, we do not limit our activities to any age group or social affiliation. Events take place barrier-free.
Aware of art and culture’s ability to entrain and act out fundamental community structures, czirp czirp’s agenda wishes to involve all backgrounds and genders. We think of czirp czirp as a social connecting tool that directs key questions in culture and aims to develop sustainable strategies for the future.
Our goal is to represent the diversity of internationally performing artists and to maintain a balanced and equal ratio of gender(s).
