Synoptic 2010

Synoptic (previously Szemlétek) is an adiovisional happening in Pécs, which has been going on for six years now. It deals with recent cultural and political issues through video- and media arts. In 2010 our topic at Synoptic is “tracking”. It is a reaction to the scenery of society and personal relations in many aspects. Our rush and technology based lifestyle leads to superficial side-effects, which cause objectification, depersonalization and time-out. “Tracking” focuses on a set of technical instruments and services (GPS, Radar technology, Internet, Robotics…) and investigates the way how the individual becomes a powerful “tracker” or a defenseless “tracked”. Keeping track of time, place, people, events; the attachment or the indifference of the individual towards society or vice versa, the conscious or unconscious relation to time and space plays another important role in Synoptic’s theoretical background this year.
