It’s that time of year again and experimental media artists all around the globe are gearing up for GLI.TC/H 2011. The conference/symposium/exhibition/performance series is originally developed and organized by Nick Briz, Evan Meaney, Rosa Menkman, and Jon Satrom, all of whom joined me in a group chat last year for B@S. This year the activities and festivities have spread across the pond and will include unique tandem events in both Birmingham (UK) and Amsterdam. Below is a more detailed schedule of activities as well as some “bumpers” that act as trailers for what to expect this year.

Thinkers and artists; Makers and breakers converge to celebrate technological catastrophe. A glitch is a moment known to everyone, yet rarely celebrated. GLI.TC/H brings together those inspired, curious, and provoked by glitches and provides a platform to break things, share thoughts, and develop ideas.

GLI.TC/H 20111 will include works from over 100 participants from more than a dozen countries and will be taking place in virtual-space at and in real-space:
