From September 26 to 28, 2013 in Brussels, the ELEKTRA international digital arts festival was the guest of honour at the Bozar Electronic Arts Festival (BEAF), presenting FOCUS QUÉBEC, an outstanding program featuring over 20 Quebec artists and organizations, running at the same time as the Quinzaine numérique organized by the Federation Wallonia-Brussels.
Taking place at the Palais des Beaux-Arts (BOZAR) in Brussels, FOCUS QUÉBEC offered a unique overview of the Quebec scene honouring digital arts in all its forms (performances, installations, workshops, professional meetings through the IMDA ‒ International Marketplace for Digital Arts), presented for the first time in Belgium. The BEAF offered engaging programming –bringing together electronic music and media arts – from Modeselektor, Jon Hopkins, Juan Atkins and Moritz Von Oswald, Emptyset feat, Joannie Lemercier, Lee Gamble, the Swiss duo Cod.Act, Pierce Warnecke and many others.
