The Art Hack Day flash exhibit is the culmination of a 48-hour art marathon. Taking place in Eastern Bloc's gallery spaces and bringing the eight edition of Sight & Sound to a fabulous close, the 40 artists and hackers who had participed in the Art Hack Day event will collectively exhibit the fruit of their art-making sprint.

Art Hack Day is an event that dissects the process of artistic creation. For this edition of Sight & Sound, Per Capita, AHD explores the sharing economy and other collaborative horizontal models. From September 30th to October 2nd, 40 artists and hackers will inhabit Eastern Bloc to create a flash exhibition around the theme of the sharing economy. From a critical perspective and through collaborative practice, this flash exhibition aims to reinterpret the complexity of these challenges by focusing on the practices of 'do-it-yourself’ and ‘do-it-together’, which are located at the intersection of art, technology and science.

By cultivating risk-taking and experimentation, we encourage participants to take an informed look at these current phenomena from the economy of sharing, questioning its mechanisms, its impact and its place in our society. Are Shareconomy models truly fair and democratic alternatives? Can these models invest in sustainable development according to shared and enduring values? Can they be part of a solidarity dimension where communities are really engaged?


The Art Hack Day organisation is an internet-based nonprofit dedicated to hackers whose medium is art and artists whose medium is tech.


AHD bridges the gap between art, technology, and entrepreneurship with grassroots hackathons and exhibitions that demonstrate the expressive potential of new technology and the power of radical collaboration in art. AHD believes in non-utilitarian beauty through technology and its ability to affect social change for public good. dedicated to hackers whose medium is art and artists whose medium is tech.
