Vector Festival 2022: Glitch
July 14 – 24, 2022
A glitch is a mistake, an error, a failure, a malfunction—it’s the machine telling us that something inside it has gone wrong. Machines are designed to, and expected to, work perfectly. However, even the most powerful technologies can be quickly undone by a glitch. A glitch is a crack in the technological artifice that boasts its infallibility and precision. What happens when this artifice crumbles, when we are faced with a system error or a computer crash? We seek out alternatives.
Vector Festival 2022 centres around the enticing, joyous, infinite possibilities offered by glitch. Drawing inspiration from Legacy Russell’s Glitch Feminism the festival considers glitch as a necessary, protective force for interrupting the machinic workings of patriarchy, capitalism, and racism. Counterintuitively, through its multitudinal ruptures and refusals, glitch becomes a generative site for envisioning new ways of existing beyond current sociopolitical operating systems.
Through a hybrid online and in-person program of exhibitions, performances, screenings, workshops, talks, and community events, this 10-day festival invites artists and audiences to come together in celebration of failure and all its potentials.
