Abandon Normal Devices (AND) Festival

Primitive, Apichatpong Weerasethakul

Dates: 23-27 September 2009 | Location: FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology), Liverpool

Abandon Normal Devices (AND) is a new festival of Digital Culture and New Cinema, inviting us to consider what are our normal devices? And why and how might we abandon them?

AND kicks off on 23 September 2009 in Liverpool with five days filled with screenings, exhibitions, public interventions, debates and workshops. Highlights of the festival include influential artists such as Apichatpong Weerasethakul, The Yes Men, Krzysztof Wodiczko, Carolee Schneemann, Jamie King and DJ Spooky.

At the heart of AND lies a fascination with ideas about social, physical and technological norms, offering artistic approaches from the playful to the downright provocative, and featuring a distinctive emphasis on critique and ideas. A Northwest festival, AND will continue with future editions in Cumbria, Lancaster, Cheshire and Manchester.

AND is presented by FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) (Liverpool), Cornerhouse (Manchester) and folly (Lancaster). The festival forms part of WE PLAY, the Northwest cultural legacy programme for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
