“Vaje za resničnost” bodo predstavile hibridne prakse in perspektive – med dokumentarnim filmom in fikcijo, popolnoma improviziranim ali po scenariju vnaprej določenim igranjem vlog, z igralci, ne-igralci in umetnimi entitetami ter palimpsesti sedanjih ter bližnjih časov in prostorov -, ki izpostavljajo zabrisane meje med resničnostjo in fikcijo, razkrivajo konstruiranost naših pogledov na svet ter osvetljujejo povsem nove imaginacije, identitete in načine bivanja. Pri tem ne raziskujejo le vpliva na razvoj in ohranjanje lastnega jaza, temveč tudi širše razprave o političnem vključevanju, aktivizmu, spolu, agrikulturi, medicini, izobraževanju in virtualizaciji.

Tom K Kemp employs roleplaying game design, animation and filmmaking to tell collaborative ghost stories about complexity and the humans who constitute it. Working through the roleplaying game form to combine political simulation, fan-fiction and divination into semi-improvised group storytelling, participants are invited to parse systems, complicate common narratives, and synthesise an array of knowledges into plot, dialogue, diagram and performance. By conflating global systems, political metaphor and organisational infrastructure with genre fiction, players’ personal experience and ludic tangents, his works attempt an evocation of the emancipatory weirdness of group agency and the unintended consequences of making models of the world. He has exhibited at La Casa Encendida, Madrid, EYE Filmmuseum, Amsterdam, Quad, Derby and the MKG Hamburg. Residencies include the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam, DOGO, Lichtensteig, and Rupert, Vilnius.

Špela Petrič je slovenska novomedijska umetnica in znanstvenice, ki živi in ustvarja med Ljubljano in Amsterdamom. Doktorirala je iz biomedicine na Univerzi v Ljubljani in magistrirala na umetniški šoli LUCA v Bruslju, Belgiji. Njena praksa je medvrstna; združuje naravoslovje, žive medije in performans. Snuje umetniške poskuse, ki udejanjajo nenavadne sorodnosti, da razodevajo ontološke in epistemološke podstati naših (bio)tehnoloških družb in postavljajo izzive razponu bližnjih možnosti. Velik del njenega nedavnega dela je osredotočen na rastlinski živelj. Njena dela so bila na ogled na mnogih festivalih, razstavah in izobraževalnih dogodkih povsod po svetu. Prejela je več nagrad, med drugimi White Aphroid za izjemni umetniški dosežek, nagrado Bioart and Design in častno omembo na Prix Ars Electronici.
