Sample text

The festival permits the presentation of new media artworks, such as the exhibition RADICAL SOFTWARE, 2006, curated by Domenico Quaranta, in which one of the authors of this chapter participated as well as other artists in new media.

Thus having funded its production, it has a claim to its products.
