The 5th International Conference on the Histories of Media Art, Science and Technology – RENEW is hosted by RIXC Centre for New Media Culture.
RIXC was established on May 2000 on the basis of E-LAB (Centre for electronic arts and media, since 1996). The basic activity of RIXC is to initiate the most novel and current topics in digital art by performing innovative experimental projects in art, science and technology in Latvia and internationally. RIXC fosters cultural exchange as well as promotes new forms of cultural and artistic expression. RIXC approaches new media not only as a new field of artistic and cultural practice, but also as an infrastructure to support other forms of art and culture.
RIXC office is located in Spikeri creative quarter for culture and creative industries. RIXC office is the place where RIXC production team works managing projects and administrating RIXC activities.
