bout the Center for Digital Art
The Israeli Center for Digital Art is a dynamic platform for thinking, researching, producing, presenting, and analyzing contemporary art, as well as providing a meeting point for exchange between contemporary artists, curators, critics and the public. The center has grown quite rapidly since it was established in 2001 in an abandoned school building in the industrial area of Holon. The center is a non-profit organization supported by the city of Holon. As a public art space it consistently questions the place of art institutions within their society. This brings to the front political and social issues we believe art should not be ignoring. In an effort to stimulate discourse in Israeli society, the center devotes a significant part of its work on art projects that foster questions about identity, ethnicity, nationalism and cultural exchange.

General concept and theme for Print Screen 2017
This will be the seventh year of Print Screen, Israel’s International Digital Culture Festival initiated and produced by the Holon Cinematheque.
Just as the “PrintScreen” function captures a screenshot of a computer, so too does the festival capture a contemporary screenshot of life in the epoch of new media. The festival draws together artists, technologists and digital culture researchers for four days of programming at the Holon Cinematheque in Holon, Israel. Print Screen includes a wide variety of films, contextual programming, interactive presentations, master classes with international artists, workshops, lectures and panel discussions
Print Screen 2017 will focus on the connection between biology, art and digital technology under the title: “Animal, Vegetable, Mineral”.
With a series of curated performances, screening, talks and exhibitions – the festival will expose artists that are engaging with the groundbreaking scientific practices of gene-engineering, biomimicry, artificial intelligence, robotics and artificial life, and whose artworks raise questions on ecology, humanism and the rights of the non-human. This will help build a bridge between science, arts, and world’s cultures, and will result in a festival which is educational, thought-provoking and entertaining.
