Screentime Airtime Facetime

Screentime Airtime Facetime: Practicing Hybridity in the Cultural Field is the final publication of Going Hybrid, an applied research program on the future of hybridity in the cultural field. How could Covid-triggered innovations in digital cultural programming be turned into durable ways of high-level, participatory livecasting? How to report on hybrid events? And how to collect the results in a living and accessible archive? This publications gathers the findings of two years of hands-on experiments, introduces the prototypes that were developed, and gives insight in the research process.

Because we believe in critical making, this book is itself a hybrid entity. It was originally a livestreamed online event and later turned into print and digital publication - each version a little different than what you would expect of a livestream, website, or print book. We encourage you to playfully explore the different versions of Screentime Airtime Facetime and hope that you will gain joy and insight from the form of this book as much as from its contents.

Going Hybrid (2021-2023) was a research project of the Institute of Network Cultures, in collaboration with Willem de Kooning Academy, MU Hybrid Art House, Framer Framed, IMPAKT, Varia members Simon Browne and Artemis Gryllaki, Hackers & Designers, The Hmm, Ania Molenda, Anna Maria Michael, and Maria van der Togt.
