ISEA2024 Everywhen

21-29 June 2024

ANAT is delighted to be a partner and on the steering committee for ISEA2024 Everywhen, which will be held in Meanjin (Brisbane), Queensland, Australia. The 29th symposium will be hosted on the lands of the Turrbal and Jagera peoples, the First Nations custodians of the lands and waters of Brisbane.

The International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA) is a prestigious event uniting international artists, academics, theorists, and creative technologists exploring the fusion of art, science, and technology. ISEA is a unique blend of academic conference combined with a dynamic collection of exhibitions, performances, and workshops.

ISEA2024 Everywhen program


Established in 1988, it is a nomadic event held in a different location every year. Recently ISEA has been held in South Korea in 2019, Montreal in 2020, Barcelona in 2022 and Paris last year. The symposium was last held in Australia in Sydney in 2013, presented by ANAT and titled Resistance is Futile.

ISEA2024 sets out to explore human perception of timescales and challenge our understanding of past, present and future in the days of singularity and climate change – the Everywhen.

The Everywhen is the concept of all time simultaneously present in a place and describes the notion that past, present and future are co-habiting any given location. Where many western cultures believe time is the constant and travels in a linear progression from now to then, First Nations Australians describe the before then, then, now and the future then existing in the constant presence of place: The Everywhen.

ANAT is excited to be presenting the panel event:
