LEAKING CONTAINER. Index Festival 2020
17–19 September 2020

This year, Index’ annual festival takes place 17–19 September, bringing together a program of talks, workshops and events reflecting around the topic of distribution. Leaking Container tracks how distribution leaks into artistic practices, rooted in Index’ 40-year history, both as a distributed container in the form of an art magazine and as a physical exhibition space with a conceptual focus.

Leaking Container stacks layers of leaking data, circulated films and paused distribution flows with newly created works and situations. With conversations in several directions, the festival invites connections between artistic infrastructures and models for movement of information. The three-day program centers around leaking trails of distributed images, words, and practices.

Throughout the festival, Index presents talks, events, performances, as well as newly produced works by artist Lisa Trogen Devgun who creates an installation in Index’ space, coyote stage an intervention extending out in the city, and The Parrot relay broadcasts live on air from the festival.

Hosting different formats, Index itself becomes a container, activating archives and material to think with, to relay, relate, communicate, to map models of distribution. The program is available online now at our website
