From November 1st to 5th, Studio XX presents the 13th edition of the HTMlles festival, an artistic response to the recent waves of online declarations. Beyond the # — Failures and Becomings looks at the role of digital technologies in this new space of expression, the reclaiming of voice, as well as obstacles and ways to successfully move forward. Artists, activists, and theorists redefine the foundations of success and failure and imagine new, emancipatory perspectives. The festival brings together exhibitions, discussions, a video screening, workshops, and performances.

The exhibition Code : Body investigates how the body is monitored, bullied and constrained, forced to stay within the limits dictated by white patriarchy. From virtual reality to digital photography, each artist counteracts these codes in order to give agency to people who are ignored, yet whose bodies remain controlled.

The process-based photo installation Untitled (Men Responding) by Lesya Nakoneczny is concerned with the objectification of women in social media and gender inequalities in the cultural industry.

Laura Acosta and Santiago Tavera present The Novels of Elsgüer (Episode 3) – Live Despecho, an immersive installation about how migrant bodies and their multiple representations yearn to belong.
