APO33 is a publicly funded, not-for-profit association/artists collective. APO33 focuses on collaborative working practices; crossing sound, art, philosophy and technology. APO33 is an artists run space for testing and developing projects and artworks by the collective and resident artists. Research and development produced by the association is intentionally “open” and “freely available” for use by the community; artists, programmers, researchers and organisations, as well as to the larger public.
Through exhibitions, workshops, seminars, artistic creation, international meetings, on-line contributions, publications and interventions in public spaces, APO33 queries today’s transformations in artistic and cultural practices consequent to the current re-appropriation and usage of Communication and Information technologies. This questioning has driven apo33 to work at the edge of the cultural field, by exploring possible passages and crossings between artistic creation and other social fields or practices (political activism, social mediation or action, human, environmental, natural and applied sciences, urbanism, economy, ecology…).
