    Slasky on Digital Art 
    KLEIN EDITIONS
    DECEMBER 14, 2017 13:50 PM

    Klein Editions talks to contemporary artist Slasky about digital art, the prejudices towards it, and how it compares to artistic movements of the past.

    As a digital artist yourself, what are your views on this genre of art and how do you think other people view it?

    "Nowadays creating art via digital technologies is an incredibly popular technique amongst artist, and digital art has proven to be very well received from collectors. However, I find people often tend to class digital art as ‘inferior’ to other artistic movements of the past. Digital artists are seen as people who have ‘smart ideas’ rather than as artists who actually ‘create’ art"

    Is this the case everywhere or are you referring to somewhere in particular?

    " I think it's a common misconception of digital art in general. Italy, where I live, is a good example. The belief digital art isn't as worthy as other kinds of art is made stronger by our significant historical past. For centuries an artist’s worth was evaluated based on their practical skills, with little attention paid to the concept behind the work itself"

    How do you think digital art compares to artistic movements of the past?

    "I truly believe today the attitude towards art is the same as it was in the past: what has changed is only the medium of communication. There is a continuity with futurism, dadaism, collage art, constructivism, up to artistic movements of the 60s such as kinetic art. It isn’t news that we constantly seek interactions with new mediums, in this case digital ones. Artistic movements of the past already searched for these interactions before our time


    The art is not to represent new things, but to represent with novelty.

    The Bell of the Fallen is a symbol and, as such, it contains innumerable meanings, which tangibly remind us every day the commitment, perseverance and strength of many people who have fought for peace and unity among people.
    Gandhi, Martin Luther King, the Dalai Lama, Johan Galtung, Jane Addams, Aung San Suu Kyi, John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez only to mention the most famous, and so many other great people have turned their life into a manifest of the importance of dialogue and SHARING.
    During the last ninety years, wars and violence have often prevailed in the world; remembering, only as an example, the holocaust, peace appeared and still often appears as an unattainable utopia, but these men and women remind us every day, how it is possible, as well as necessary.
    In this event Spazio-Tempo Arte wants to keep alive the memory of the ones who have worked hard for peace in the world, of all who still are and address to all those who want to continue this philosophy every day, in the macro as well as in the micro context of each individual reality.
    During the twentieth century and in the early years of the new century, many violent events have led to as many and even more initiatives dedicated to peace which have left their mark, such as the fall of the Berlin Wall, Woodstock, the abolition of apartheid, the non-violent revolutions and many other events less famous at a media level, that, however, help and promote each day the process of pacification.
    The event exhorts artists to represent peace in unconventional ways, whether talking about the concept of peace, dialogue and non-violence in general, or quoting famous or common people, both on internationally known and unknown events that characterized our century, or anything the artists would bring to the attention of the public on this topic through any artistic form.
    An event, then, that recounts the facts, the actions and the persons that, from 1925 to 2015, have left fundamental testimonies of peace.
