"abertura" is a one-day event which presents VJing and realtime audiovisual performances, presentations and installations by national and international artists. In its third edition, "abertura3: the lock", we will explore the idea of "Hacktion", or action related to activism and/or hacking, utilizing available technologies, and gathering energy from the various communities, collectives and collaborative ventures that have built up around these technologies (the themes developed over the past two years). We will explore a variety of approaches people are using to make an impact on their immediate and global surroundings in the making of "live performance", and its related expression and dissemination. This year we will also feature some film loops by artists actively engaged in resistance to the status quo. The event has a strong experimental component, and this third edition once again brings to Portugal a large international palette of people and work.

you are the key; abertura3 is a lock...you are invited to plug yourself in, turn on and do with that information what you will...
