Turin, once the capital of Italian cinema, has created a tech art scene. Turin's "Share Festival" began six years ago as an international fiesta of Internet art, and has since become famous for installations, interventions, provocations and freedom-of-expression issues. Share director Simona Lodi will show video work by Paolo Cirio, Liens Invisibles, Stelarc, Lia, and Lucas Bambozzi. Bruce Sterling and Jasmina Tesanovic will describe the work of judging tech art, and how a Texan and a Serbian gleefully participate in a European creative scene.

And Europe is different from Europe. Therefore: adapt your measures! If you want to successfully market your brand and products on a pan-European level – this is the session you need to attend!
