‘Art, Media and Contested Space’ is a series of events in Belfast, using a variety of formats —Talks, Lectures, Discussion, Workshops, Film Screenings and a Public Art Project—featuring the work of lens based artists and media practices (as means of production and/or documentation) and the representation of ‘contested space’.

Bibliographical noteReference text: INTERFACE is an interdisciplinary and practice based research centre situated in the School of Art and Design, University of Ulster, Belfast campus. It is a key element in a substantial redevelopment of the Belfast campus and has been established since April 2004.
INTERFACE explores two key processes that underlie innovative research practice in art and design. One is the investigation and redefinition of inherited categories of value and the other is the impact of digital media and new technologies on the production, distribution and mediation of art and design. Both areas are examined in the context of the wider social/economic/political arena of Northern Ireland and in the world.
