Deconfine is an online media art festival conceived and curated by Media Art South Asia, under the aegis of November Numerique by Institut Francais. It is presented by the network of Alliance Francais-es in South Asia (India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh) and Insti-tut Francais en Inde.

Deconfine features artists, curators and researchers from France and South Asia. It seeks to foster regional cooperation within the subcon-tinent and between South Asia and Europe. It examines the evolving, dynamic and multifaceted nature of human – technology relation-ships, and showcases works and initiatives that leverage the poten-tial of technology to reflect on that relationship and other social is-sues.

Along with an online exhibition, the festival will host conversations with artists, curators and researchers on different aspects of media art and digital culture.

This is a one-of-a-kind collaboration between creators and the or-ganizations involved, resulting in one of South Asia’s first purely on-line media art exhibitions, making media art more accessible than ever to South Asian audiences.
