Project: Algolit

Littérature et Numérique

Algolit is taking part in the exhibition ’Littérature et Numérique’ in Maison du Livre in Brussels with 3 different installations: L’algolitérateur, La Voix au chapitre and Greffer des arbres.

Digitization and algorithms are opening up new ways of writing. Will the architecture of the narrative free itself from linearity? Are stories going to write themselves? Will the viewer-reader be able to intervene in the course of the story? Interactivity, non-linearity, automated writing? Revolutions ? Fantasies ? Dead ends? Chestnut trees ? Danger ? The pooling of different approaches to these questions, where plastic arts, technological developments and literary expressions are combined, should allow the visitors to reinterpret the notions of text, book, page, speech, narrative... And, of course, to question their own place, their role as perceivers/readers.

Opening on Friday 25-9 from 18h onwards in the framework of Parcours d’Artistes St-Gilles.

Thursday 1 October at 19h : encounter between the exposing artists and Valérie Cordy, director of la Fabrique de théâtre and teacher of Digital Arts in La Cambre.

Thursday 8 October at 19h : dialogue with philosopher Lambros Couloubaritsis. His latest works deal with the complexity and IA on the one hand and narrative violence on the other.
