An, International Symposium on Electronic Art, is one of the most important annual

 events worldwide dedicated to the crossroads where art, design, science, technology, and society meet.

The event has been held over 26 times all over the world, and after more than 10 since it last graced European soil, it touches down in Barcelona. With it comes an enthusiastic international and local community, ready to work together to develop this interdisciplinary field.

As it has travelled the globe over the years,ISEA has served as a meeting point for artists, scientists, technologists and theorists to share their research along with their latest prototypes, technological developments or artistic works linked to science and technology.

What makes ISEA unique is that it is not so much an academic conference as a conference-based event that offers a wide array of activities, which surprise visitors with newly conceived formats in every edition. At the symposium you are sure to find exhibitions, workshops, open-air projects, round tables, talks from artists, PechaKucha presentations, school initiatives, artists-in-residence, scientists-in-residence and a variety of other activities, all with the involvement of different organisations and communities from the city of Barcelona.

At its heart, ISEA is a transformative event, hybrid in nature, that is at once interinstitutional, intersectional, intergenerational and international. ISEA 2022 reinforces Barcelona’s role as a leader in research and scientific output, intellectuality and cultural creativity in both a national and international context.
