Hidden Alliances_versteckt verbunden presentations 2020

20 female artists in electronic art/music tell quite a different story and together they weave a fascinating network of interrelationships

„The IMAfiction DVD series and Hidden Alliances publication constitute something of a milestone in the male-dominated genre of electronic music. More than just a much-needed record of the ground-breaking work of pioneering and contemporary artists and curators and the invisible relationships that bind them together, they map the broader connections, whether artistic, technological or conceptual between these women and the genre of electronic music as a whole.“ (Rahma Khazam)

This publication is a coproduction of IMA Institute of Media Archeology and Ars Electronica and is the direct result of the exhibition Hidden Alliances | Elisabeth Schimana and the IMAfiction Series | Ars Electronica Festival 2018 | Featured Artist at the Lentos Kunstmuseum Linz, September 5–30, 2018
