In the research project VISI.ON.AIR, MAXLab researchers initiate a dialogue about media, art and technology at the crossroads of their different research practices. It is an opportunity to work together to deepen and sharpen the vision and orientation of the research group.
For this research, MAXlab collaborates with Constant, a Brussels organization of artists, theorists and technicians. They act as screeners who will analyze and extrapolate the work of the research group.
The materialization of this project and the translation of the dialogue into artistic practice is the development of a TV channel. The researchers involved form an editorial board, devise and create the programs and invite students and external artists to contribute. This should result in an experimental eclectic overview of what is going on within MAXlab, ranging from purely aesthetic to socially critical, with an open mind to the broader field of education and research in the arts.
