Voltaje is a cultural initiative that provides an overview of the way Colombian and foreign artists explore, confront and assume the multiple relationships between Art and Technology. Voltaje was also created to make this field known to a wider public, a field in which Colombia has been a pioneer country in Latin America since the seventies.
The event is an initiative from La Feria del Millón in a partnership with Universidad de los Andes and Fundación Telefónica, with the support of the French Embassy, Sci Arc and the City of Bogotá.
