Associazione Culturale Interzona APS

Interzona Cultural Association - APS

San Martino Valle Caudina, Italy

Founded in 2003 in San Martino Valle Caudina, a small rural village on the border between Irpinia and Sannio Benevento, the Interzona Cultural Association deals with sound, arts, techno-culture and the study of rural areas. Stemming from the Interferenze international festival of arts and new technologies, the Interzona Cultural Association has experimented, over the last eighteen years and in various rural areas (Irpinia, Fortore Benevento, the Barsento-Trulli area in Puglia, but also Molise, Cilento and Sicily), a series of hybrid formats (residences, laboratories, workshops, field study projects) merged into a research platform focused on the concept of (neo-) rurality, which applies multidisciplinary and critical approaches inspired by New Media Studies as well as Cultural and Postcolonial Studies. The projects developed by the association include, among others, Liminaria (ongoing), Mediaterrae Vol. 1 (2007), FARM / Interferenze (2012) and Barsento Mediascape (2013). In 2010, an edition of the festival Interferenze was organised in Japan (Interferenze Seeds Tokyo).
