// From Sea to City
With: Violeta Moreno-Lax, Adnan Hadzi, Nicolas Zemke, Hagen Kopp

Sea Watch and Alarm Phone have already been working in a state of permanent crisis for 5 years now, fighting the EU'S policies of letting die at the deadliest European border, the Mediterranean. It is an avoidable and deadly crisis. Now the biggest difference is that our environment is also in one. Staying at home, in those Covid-19 times, is a privilege that the people we pull out of the water do not have. We must not and will not forget the people who are fighting for their survival on the doorstep of Fortress Europe. Flight is not a choice.

// Narrative of Emergency
With: Santiago Zabala, Marloes de Valk, DISNOVATION.ORG

Contemporary emergencies and artists and activists working with them. In this conversation, the philosopher and cultural critic Santiago Zabala will discuss his work on the contemporary “absence of emergencies” with AMRO community members Marloes de Valk and Disnovation.org.

AMRO20: Art Meets Radical Openness 2020
May 20th — 23rd / Online!

AMRO is a biennial community festival that explores and discusses new challenges between digital culture, art, everyday life, education, politics and activism. The festival is organised by the Linz based net culture initiative servus.at.

Due to the circulating Covid-19 pandemic, it was not possible to organize this years edition and gathering as usual. We will miss the possibility to meet our community in the physical space and we will miss the excellent food which was always provided.
We take this as a challenge and decided to come up with a radical digital version for this years edition of our event which includes our DIY culture of setting up our own trustworthy digital environment. We will be distant but we will be social and happy to welcome you within our online event.

Our event is distributed over different independent platforms such as dorftv.at and radio FRO fro.at, but also several other online spaces. To check them all, go to the Festival Gateway at https://gateway.radical-openness.org/

Of Whirlpools and Tornadoes

The 2020 edition of the AMRO festival is characterized by reflections upon the “centripetal” and “centrifugal” dynamics of acceleration visible in contemporary society and the ways artistic practice, activism and radical thinking can engage with it.
Of Whirlpools and Tornadoes aims to provide a picture of the current social and technological movements that reflect the diverse troubles our economic and political systems are currently facing. The speed of production and consumption of new technologies is inevitably linked to the waste of natural resources, which humans exploit and use to their own only advantage without considering the equilibrium of the ecosystem.
