What is Glitch /Art ?
However, anyone who starts to deal with the topic of Glitch Art soon encounters a world wide spread group of Glitch Activists: Artists, theorists and coders exchange their ideas at a very high technical level, meet at international festivals and on digital platforms. A great deal of fascination emanates from the phenomenon of disturbances which are not under control: on part of the artists AND the audience.
The technological definition of glitch describes a transient failure or interruption of an expected operational flow within a digital system. In art, it includes the metaphorical, conceptual/tactical, or aesthetic use of technological glitches. Glitch can be used to criticize the medium's inherent politics, in genre, interface, norms and expectations. As a community it is decentralized. As a theory moment/um, it is a theory of change, with a meaningful stylization and its own 'language'. Glitches can show any media in a critical state of hypertrophy: ruined, unwanted, unrecognized, random and terrible.

GLI.TC/H - THE ART MOVEMENT
What is GLI.TC/H? GLI.TC/H (pronounced G - L - I - dot - T - C - slash - H) has had four iterations and is presently being developed and maintained by Nick Briz, Rosa Menkman and Jon Satrom with help of many others. Founded in 2010, GLI.TC/H has been self-described as a conference, festival and gathering hybrid. It has always been a free and open event, taking place in Chicago (2010, 20111, 2112), Amsterdam (20111) and Birmingham (20111), and aims to gather glitch artists, theorists, coders and enthusiasts for a short time, to share their work and ideas. In the past (2010 and 20111) GLI.TC/H held a call for works, from which the organizers have curated gallery exhibitions, video screenings, realtime audio/video performances, lectures, workshops, panels and online exhibitions. GLI.TC/H has featured the works of over 100 artists from over a dozen countries. In 2011 GLI.TC/H released a collection of essays and text art called the GLI.TC/H READER[ROR] published by Unsorted Books (ISBN: 978-4-9905200-1-4).
