d1sc0nN3ct is a week-long event that explores (and provokes) breakdowns in the system. Conceived of in response to the international GLI.TC/H festival taking place this November in Chicago, Amsterdam, and Birmingham, U.K., d1sc0nN3ct features new work by Cairo and Alexandria-based artists that experiment with corrupting software, hardware, and digital and analogue media to create (seemingly) meaningless, functionless, and potentially subversive aesthetic errors. Projects by artists including Sarah Samy, Kareem Lotfy, Ahmed el Shaer, Amr Ali, Emma Benany and others include corrupted files, gifs, deformed codes, and video art games that will be shown alongside contributions from an international roster of dirty new media practitioners. Film screenings, artist talks, and other programming will take place throughout the week.
