In his talk at Lift France, Marcos Garcia shares his experience from Interactivos?, a platform for collective production and learning that brings together scientists, artists, designers and tech people. Interactivos? is an initiative of Medialab-Prado, a counter-program of the Madrid City Council Art Department focussed on the intersection between art, science and technology as well as the social connections of these intersections: „Interactivos? may serve as a good example of how we can build more open and participatory institutions – institutions and platforms where everyone can become a collaborator“ believes Marcos. One of the leaders of the Interactivos? workshops is SUNY Buffalo art professor Steve Kurtz: „The collaborative model of Interactivos? shows the power of collectivism. Still there is a tremendous amount of individuality expressed - people bring the skills that they can bring and through that they make these projects happen and make wholes that are greater than the sum of the parts.“ For more presentations and interviews from Lift France 2009 please click here.
