DIS is a New York-based collective comprising Lauren Boyle, Solomon Chase, Marco Roso and David Toro. For more than a decade, DIS has been working on the development of platforms for cultural production, dissemination and reflection. Through platforms such as DIS Magazine as well as curatorial projects such as the 9th Berlin Biennale (2016), the collective acts as an attractive and effective critical force in contemporary culture.

Following the evolution of the web (and the transition from blogs to social media and streaming sites), DIS launched a new platform in 2018 – – which takes the pop production and broadcasting formats of sites such as Netflix or YouTube and combines them with an educational requirement: a true streaming art school, seeks to reconcile entertainment and learning. Original documentaries and artists’ videos are presented, which raise questions on the functioning of democratic regimes, media and economic theories, reflections on the technosphere and new modes of access to knowledge.

Access to the conference free upon presentation of the Covid certificate.
