The Influencers is a three day think-tank that tackles the potential of non conventional communication in contemporary society. We are interested in exploring the hybrid zones wherein autonomous experiments and mainstream culture blend and collapse into one another. Projects that stem out of a deeply rooted do-it-yourself attitude, even when they develop into complex, large scale projects.
Since 2004, The Influencers has been gathering a limited but carefully selected number of diverse projects. This 6th installment makes no exception: celebrity pranksters (with a cause), tactical media artists, computer games modders, hi-tech donkeys, extreme bicycling gangs, atomic sculptors, ads' kidnappers, and media transformers will come together for three long evenings to present, discuss, and perform their work. Whether they are art works or life long projects, or just weird ideas one came up with, these practices are fed by a visionary taste for weirdness and desire for social change.
