Reblogged Scanners, collectors and aggregators. On the ‘underground movement’ of (pirated) theory text sharing

ubuwebScanners, collectors and aggregators. On the ‘underground movement’ of (pirated) theory text sharing by Janneke Adema, posted on Open Reflections, September 20, 2009

“But as I say, let’s play a game of science fiction and imagine for a moment: what would it be like if it were possible to have an academic equivalent to the peer-to-peer file sharing practices associated with Napster, eMule, and BitTorrent, something dealing with written texts rather than music? What would the consequences be for the way in which scholarly research is conceived, communicated, acquired, exchanged, practiced, and understood?” — Gary Hall – Digitize this book! (2008)

Ubu web was founded in 1996 by poet Kenneth Goldsmith and has developed from ‘a repository for visual, concrete and (later) sound poetry, to a site that ‘embraced all forms of the avant-garde and beyond. Continue reading

[-empyre-] Publishing In Convergence

Morgan Currie wrote:

“How can the book find an adequate outside with which to assemble in heterogeneity, rather than a world to reproduce” – Deleuze and Guattari.

Despite the recent hype around ebooks, the future of publishing remains uncertain. The growth in markets for electronic distribution has resulted in a messy and highly competitive ecology of digital rights management systems, conflicting file formats and devices, and an online book market driven by new players such as Google and Apple. Meanwhile, pirate networks for ‘liberated knowledge’ have opened other avenues for delivering content (whether legal or not), while the open access movement has increasingly consolidated as a legitimate alternative to corporate publishers. These are the realities of media convergence as perpetual crisis, or at least an ongoing entanglement of interests, and a situation full of potential for the future of the book. Continue reading

Tactics and Practice: New Media Drivers — A Pilot Seminar in New Media Arts :: June 1-5, 2010 :: Kino Šiška Centre for Urban Culture, Trg Prekomorskih brigad 3, Ljubljana, Slovenia.

New media arts. Whether you make it, curate it, present it, write about it, teach it, programme it, or shape it in some other way, its constantly evolving technologies, a tendency to venture into unknown territories and mingle with diverse disciplines, and a predisposition for critical self-reflection and social discourse fuse new media arts into a fast-paced field that demands frequent updating of the drivers that operate its machinery.

Thus, the 5-day free pilot seminar Tactics and Practice: New Media Drivers aims to refresh and expand the new media arts educational offering in Slovenia and provide useful tools and insights into the field for creators at various stages in their careers. Continue reading

Sonia Sheridan & Generative Systems

[Image: Sonia Sheridan manipulating the Chromemco Z-2D system with EASEL software, 1982.] Sonia Landy Sheridan is a visual artist and professor Emerita of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where, after ten years of teaching the fine arts, she founded the program Generative Systems in 1970. With the cooperation of scientists, industry, artists and a unique body of graduate students, Sheridan was able to explore the implications of the communications revolution for the arts. As artist-in-residence at 3M’s Color Research and Central Research Labs, she was able to take back to her students up-to-date industrial experiences. Sheridan shaped her art and teaching on the premise that art, science and technology function as intertwining systems of thought. Continue reading

Transversal Space: Save Middlesex Philosophy

Transversal Space :: May 7 – 9, 2010 :: Middlesex University, The Burroughs, London.

In response to the planned closure of Middlesex Philosophy and after the failure of the Dean to attend a meeting that he set up with students to explain this abrupt, unjustified and unacceptable decision, the students have occupied Mansion House on Trent Park campus.

We now announce the opening of an experimental and communal space for educational presentations and conversations at the interface between philosophy, theory, activism and art. Transversal Space is an alternative educational experience in which the boundaries between disciplines and the relations between students and teachers are blurred. Continue reading

Future Tense: Alternative Arts and Economies in the University [us San Diego]

The 4th annual UCIRA State of the Arts Conference: Future Tense: Alternative Arts and Economies in the University :: November 18-21, 2010 :: University of California, San Diego :: Call for Proposals — Deadline: May 28, 2010

The Conference Theme: The last two years have witnessed an unprecedented crisis on college campuses around the world, as the social compact that governed higher education in the United States and Europe for the past half century has begun to collapse. Universities from London to Sussex, from Athens to Vienna, and from Berkeley to Santa Cruz, have experienced protests, occupations, walkouts and other actions directed against the encroaching privatization of public education. This crisis has been particularly acute at the University of California, the flagship public university system in the United States. Continue reading

[iDC] Learning Ecologies

Trebor Scholz wrote:

Dear all,

After The Internet as Playground and Factory, we are now moving the discussion to the next event in the conference series The Politics of Digital Culture. Our exchanges over the coming months will focus on digital media and learning from a global perspective, a set of topics that we discussed on this list before. While research about learning with digital media in the United States has received significant attention, a critical international angle is still largely missing. Concerns for the upcoming iDC conversations will include:

  • The International Political Economy of Learning
  • Dispelling the Myths of the Digital Native
  • Continue reading
