Festival for psychogeography

Conflux is the annual New York festival for contemporary psychogeography, the investigation of everyday urban life through emerging artistic, technological and social practice.

The Village Voice describes Conflux as a "network of maverick artists and unorthodox urban investigators… making fresh, if underground, contributions to pedestrian life in New York City, and upping the ante on today's fight for the soul of high-density metropolises."

Participants in Conflux share an interest in psychogeography. Projects presented range from interpretations of the classical approach developed by the Situationists to new methods being developed today in cities throughout the world.

At Conflux, participants, along with attendees and the public, put their investigations into action on the city streets. The city becomes a playground, a laboratory and a space for the development of new networks and communities.

Conflux, September 14-17, Brooklyn, NYC.
