Abstract:

  • Voltaje is a cultural initiative comprising an art exhibition and a series of conferences and workshops. Voltaje provides an overview of the way Colombian and foreign artists explore, confront and assume the multiple relationships between Art and Technology.
    The project is a partnership between the M.E.A.T. (Electronic Media and Time Arts) area of the Art Department of Universidad de los Andes in a partnership with La Feria del Millón and Fundación Telefónica, with the support of the Institut Français, the French Embassy, Sci Arc and the City of Bogotá.

    The Art Department of the University established the M.E.A.T. area in 1997 in order to broaden the scope of contemporary artistic creation and to promote the development of conceptual reflections and technical skills in new technologies and media with a critical awareness of its impact on contemporary culture. 20 years later it’s an obliged reference for new media creation in Latin America.

    The University of los Andes was founded on November 16th, 1948 by a group of young men under the leadership of Mario Laserna Pinzón. It was the first private higher education institution in Colombia that was non- denominational, secular and independent from traditional political parties, as well as from social or economic power groups. It was precisely due to these characteristics, that Universidad de los Andes was able to propitiate a visionary and avant-garde educational program.
