Short description: 

Electronic literature is an ever-changing field which makes clear the intersections between multiple art forms, semiotic languages and experiences with the medium. This literary form thrives on dialogues between digital art, cinema, performance or games. The exhibition “Shapeshifting texts” aims to present a selection of works that incorporate these possibilities of interconnection.
Between the 3rd and the 5th of November, we will present the collaborative work done by institutions and archives focused on the preservation of electronic and experimental literature and, simultaneously, demonstrate that electronic literature is part of an ever-evolving process which might have been catalysed by the first experiences with language and surfaces of inscription. At Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Bremen, from the 3rd to the 5th of November 2016, visitors will find works that shapeshift at different levels, often depending on assemblage and recalibration to be experienced.
This exhibition is linked with the International Conference on Digital Media and Textuality and with an Evening of Performances.
