NEoN 2019, 4 – 10 November

Okay, our editor Ana works for this company, so we’re a bit biased, but we really are looking forward to this year’s NEoN digital arts festival. The theme is react and there’s been a much greater emphasis on artwork engaging ideas of protest and social change.

In the Weave by Abertay exhibition RE:MAKE/RE:SIST at the Wellgate Centre, Irene (Tokini) Fubara-Manuel will show her videogame ‘Dreams of Disguise: Errantry’ about her experiences of UK border control as a queer woman of colour. In the same show we’ll be showing a Tina Keane film about women-led campaign against nuclear weapons, as well as displaying some modified barbies from Igor Vamos’ Barbie Liberation Organization action in the 90s.

Valentina Bonizzi will be showing a series of works at Nomas* Projects based on her research at the Dheisheh Refugee Camp in Palestine, while Larry Achiampong & David Blandy will be exploring racism in videogames and the erasure of black men like John Edmonstone from history.

The screening programme at George Orwell promises some challenging work by creators such as Jennifer Chan, Elaine Hoey, Georgie Roxby Smith, and Jenny Odell – who’ll be exploring issues such as terrorism and power, nostalgia, and domesticity.

There’ll also be a three day symposium, with speakers such as Diana Georgiou and Giulia Casalini from feminist art organisation CUNTemporary and Dr. Maria Chatzichristodoulou whose paper is entitled ‘Performance as Citizen Media: Gesturing the Revolution’.

Visit for more information about the festival. Almost all events are free, but some need to be booked in advance.
