Sunday 2nd September, 2012

10:30am to 5:15pm (CET)

The comprehensive cross-media project “Everyday Rebellion” by the Riahi Brothers (AT) gives the third symposium day both its theme and name. As a Web-2.0 platform as well as a documentary film currently in production, their work is a group portrait of—and homage to—courageous people putting up nonviolent political resistance worldwide.

Following the presentation by Arash and Arman Riahi, we will hear from some Everyday Rebels whose commitment to a just cause has been honored by the Prix Ars Electronica. They are activists and artists who have made creative and very tangible contributions to the struggle for democratic freedom of opinion and artistic freedom in diverse countries including Syria, China and the USA. They employ artistic as well as technical and legal means.
