Radars & Fences

When the Paradigms of Discipline and Control Collide

New York University
March 6-7, 2008

Born in Italy in 2000 and based in Barcelona (Spain) since 2002, d-i-n-a is a small de-centralized collective whose purpose is to foster public debate about strategies of direct intervention in current communication landscape, with a special focus on communication guerrilla methods, surreal tactics and direct media action.

Encouraging informal style presentations and a direct and "pop" approach to complex matters, we aim to bridge the gap between creators and the public, and between collectives or individual artists apparently belonging to distant fields.

As artists, activists, writers and "networkers", we are more attracted by cross-pollination between practices rather than ephemeral trends within limited fields. Instead of simply mirroring fashions, we try to underline links between successful tactics and ideas, especially when developed in different corners of contemporary creation.

Between 2000 and 2002 d-i-n-a organized three editions of a festival called "Digital is not Analog", which introduced for the first time in Italy and for a wide public artistic practices like "net.art" and "culture jamming".

In Spring 2004 d-i-n-a organized the first edition of The Influencers festival, in collaboration with the Center of Contemporary Culture of Barcelona, continuing a research into contemporary and classical examples of media performance, autonomous modifications of hardware/software communication technologies, and direct intervention + manipulation of popular culture.
