Naggar School in Ars Electronica Festival
Musrara School was chosen to participate this year in the Ars Electronica Festival, which takes place every year in the city of Linz, Austria - One of the largest media art festivals in the world. This year, in light of the global health situation, the festival will be held solely online.
The festival will feature members of Naggar School's Sonic Art Research Group consisting of alumni and faculty members who work together with a goal to expand the discourse and body of knowledge of sound art in Israel.
The group members are: Lior Pinsky, Eran Sachs, Amir Meir, Eyal Biton, Yogev Freilichman.
Dana Tkatch, Amos Peled and Nevo Revivo joined the group for the production of the film.
The joint work of the group members that will be displayed in the festival is tilted "Finding Amir" - A unique short recorded with binaural audio technologies and dealing with in-depth questions about the imaginary reality that lies behind the walls of digital and symbolic representation.
The work can be viewed on the festival website three times:
Friday, 11.9 at 11:35 and Sunday, 13.9 at 16:30 and at 19:00.

The project is a product of the Jerusalem Greenhouse for Artists, which is supported by Matanel Foundation.
