20 years of interactions, connections and collaborations

In 2017 we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the international online community “FACES“, a network of women in media arts who connect inperson and on the listserv faces-l.net. “FACES” was founded in 1997 in Austria. It has built its base from meetings with communities of women around the world, in person and virtually, bringing a borderless sense of communication, giving new possibilities for creative online projects – performance, spoken word, sound, and theoretical discussion. http://www.faces-l.net/
