HERE'S TO THE FUTURE!

STRP looks to the future with an open and critical view. We refuse to flee in a crippling nostalgia. We have had enough of the dark and tough flirt with dystopia and ask ourselves out loud: how in heaven’s name can we come through this conservative and fear-driven period together?

STRP explores scenarios for a positive future in 2019 and 2020. We will guide you through a time in which technology seems to offer the solution for everything, and doom-scenarios are leading. STRP initiates, produces and presents innovative art and visions whereby creative technology plays a significant role, for an international and curious audience.

Education

STRP has a cluster of educational and participation projects in which STRP shares it’s knowledge, experiences and ideas. We want to challenge artists, audiences and societies to embrace our mentality. Therefore we organize all kinds of events that challenges children, youngsters, elderly, students and professionals at their own level and pace. We bring together different audiences and have the ambition to make them curious for more. STRP wants to promote keen thinking by acting and teach things by sharing.

The New Networked Normal

The New Networked Normal (NNN), a project about innovation in art, communication, technology and social change. In a time of political uncertainty and rapid technological change, global events are disrupting our economic, cultural, social and geographical norms, bringing our ideals of citizenship, sovereignty and governance into question.

New technologies, emerging communities and networks are significant catalysts in this change, but they also present new models and opportunities for how citizens can live, work and communicate, providing glimpses of a future sovereignty.

NNN brings together five leading organisations in the field of contemporary media arts from across Europe, led by Abandon Normal Devices (UK) with The Influencers (ES), Kulturprojekte (DE), STRP (NL) and Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB) (ES), these partners have a rich history in fostering a critical understanding of contemporary culture and technology. Combined they have an international reputation of commissioning, producing and programming cutting edge work, which addresses the new ways society is consuming content and engaging the public in these issues.

Together this new partnership will address critical issues through an innovative public programme of digital co-productions, pop-up exhibitions, discursive events, hands-on workshops and online activities

One of the first commissions within the NNN project culminated in an alternative online exhibition space nnn.freeport.global designed and developed by PWR which will house and reveal artworks over the year.

nnn.freeport.global is an alternative space for the distribution of artworks, using the backstreets, black markets and divergent parts of the internet to create, exhibit and debate the value of art.

nnn.freeport.global could house the world’s greatest museum, largely hidden from sight, it lacks any common ground, temporality or space. It is an extraterritorial zone, a place in which time and space are rearranged and in terminal impermanence.

The New Networked Normal explores art, technology and citizenship in the age of the Internet, a partnership project by, Abandon Normal Devices (UK) Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB) (ES), The Influencers (ES), Transmediale (DE) and STRP (NL). This project has been co-funded with support from the Creative Europe programme.
