NOXTE (/ˈnuqt'a/) is a colloquial term used in Farsi meaning dot.
A Project by NULLSIGHT, Media arts collective from Tehran, collection of conceptual, practical, and technology-oriented objects, contributing to the promotion of the media-art business.
What defines the identity of distinction is where the self ends and the other begins: the point in which the individual body and the social framework is shaped. NOXTE is based on this idea of liberation of bodies and going beyond boundaries.
The mystical revelation & free exploration of mind & soul while experiencing the trauma of living in the third world country, limitations, boundaries and different kind of social orders, are what NOXTE is trying to observe & share as a different value of art.
The idea of going beyond the boundaries, ignoring the reality & seeking in deeper concepts is the manifest in how the works are selected: the objects that lost their original function for their were merely used decoratively; similar to body itself that is now an old-fashioned entity, falling to pieces in different frameworks.
The exhibition would take place on 6-8 December 2019 in KUNSTQUARTIERS BETHANIEN STUDIO 1, part of a festival presenting Iranian experimental audiovisual/music performances entitled Tehran Contemporary Sounds.
The platform was launched in 2018, through the organization of “Gate of Tehran – Days of Experimental Sounds” festival as a Berlin-based hub, for musicians, artists and collectives living abroad, with the aim to bring together the different voices and forces of the big spectrum of the Iranian contemporary art and music scene, widely spread across the globe, as well as in Iran.
TCS will be dedicated to, creating a platform for showcasing the unique talents of the Iranian artists and musicians; creating a cross-border collaboration hub; facilitating a non-political, purely artistic and interdisciplinary dialogue;
