The Chicago festival VERSION is produced by the Public Media Institute, a non-profit 501(c)-3 corporation. Version brings together individuals, groups and networks that utilize visual and conceptual art strategies, innovative social practice, public art projects, and new music to push the counter cultures forward. It’s received critical acclaim internationally and abroad.
In 2008, Dark Matter is all around us. Us artists, us activists, us outlaws. All of us, we are engaged in a culture war and economic struggle against establishments in all their guises. We form communities to counter the alienation of everyday life, and the commercial and institutional structures that stifle reality. We desire another world.
