19.00 Duality of Culture Almanac:

The presentation of a new media artwork - multimedia CD and web project - in development at C3. The project re-models traditional almanacs in line with the potentials of the new media.

During the 20th century, calendars and almanacs have provided an increasingly widening space for literature and the visual arts, some of them directly developing into supplements for anthologies and art albums in their own right. The new calendar format at the turn of the millennium might be the CD-Rom, which facilitates the public’s access to various branches of science and art, in addition to literature and fine arts; at the same time, the new format ensures the further development of the long-existing almanac genre, as well as its accomodation to the demands of a transformed world.

The project has been created by Róbert Langh and Miklós Szalay, and edited by Attila Gángoly.
