Follow Fluxus – After Fluxus [de Wiesbaden]

In 2008, the Wiesbaden Grant Follow Fluxus – after Fluxus will be awarded for the first time. The goal is to support young international artists whose works suggest ideas inherent to the Fluxus art movement in order to keep the art current alive. The establishment of the grant was inspired by the “Fluxus Festival of Very New Music” which took place in Wiesbaden in 1962. This Fluxus event provided the first real broad impact for this new art movement.

The Wiesbaden Grant: Follow Fluxus – After Fluxus: The grant will support emerging international artists whose works are inspired by the Fluxus body of thought and production processes. The endowment will total 10,000 Euro to be used within three months, from June through August. Continue reading

From the 1930s on, colonial North Africa was transformed into a laboratory for European modernisation fantasies. Casablanca was seen as a test case for the ‘city of tomorrow’, radical redevelopment plans included. The car-oriented city, the first underground car park and the largest American-style swimming pool were planned for ‘French North Africa’. The developments projected here envisaged as a blueprint for Europe’s metropolises, too, and intended to reform the way people lived. Continue reading

Live Stage: Peter Horvath Retrospective [mx Mexico City]

Peter Horvath Retrospective :: September 3 – November 23, 2008 :: Opening Reception: September 3; 8:00 pm :: Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo, Paseo de la Reforma y Gandhi s/n Bosque de Chapultepec, México, 11580.

Over the past ten years, Peter Horvath has experimented with new Internet-based forms of cinematic narrative. His work is known for its pioneering exploration of video in the context of the Internet, combining hypertext with sound and Web programming.

His first piece, The Guide (1995), established a link between two mass media: the Web and television. Still in its infancy, the Web demonstrated its interactive possibilities at a time when television was a more prevalent medium, but one that permitted only limited interaction insofar as viewers could select their programming.

On the Culture of Free Software

On the Culture of Free Software: Interview with Christopher Kelty by Geert Lovink – It is still rare that anthropologists study modern technology, let alone the politics of free software. The Houston-based scholar Christopher Kelty, who just moved from Rice University to UCLA, has done precisely that. Instead of observing the behavior and codes of this professional group of computer engineers, Kelty decided to map the social ideas behind free software production. Kelty’s Two Bits, The Cultural Significance of Free Software contains a historical reconstruction of where the ideas of “openness” and freedom to change code originate. Kelty is not repeating the well-known story about the 1998 schism between the business-minded open source faction around Eric Raymond and the religious free software fighters, lead by Richard Stallman. Instead, we get a fascinating time travel, back to the pre-PC period of early computing. With the different generations of the UNIX operating systems we see how collaborative forms of writing software are taking shape — and how the ideas about ownership grow with it. Continue reading

LoCA 2009 [jp Tokyo]

LoCA 2009 – 4th International Symposium on Location and Context Awareness :: May 7-8, 2009 :: Tokyo, Japan :: CALL FOR PAPERS – Deadline: January 9, 2009.

The 2009 Symposium on Location and Context Awareness (LoCA) seeks new and significant research on systems, services, and applications to detect, interpret and use location and other contextual information. Context includes physiological, environmental and computational data whether sensed or inferred.

In addition, context includes users’ activities, goals, abilities, preferences, interruptibility, affordances, and surroundings. With context, we can expect computers to deliver information, services, and entertainment in a way that maximizes convenience and minimizes intrusion. Continue reading

ETech: Living, Reinvented [us San Jose, CA]

O’Reilly Emerging Technology Conference (ETech): Living, Reinvented: The Technology of Abundance and Constraints :: March 9-12, 2008 :: San Jose, California :: Call for Participation: Deadline: September 17, 2008.

We live in two worlds: one filled with abundance and the other with constraints. Each has its own favorite—or essential to survival—inventions and directions. Each has been deeply affected by technology.

The abundant world has access to the Internet and other educational tools, to the latest advances in medicine, to culinary choices from around the globe, and up until recently, access to “plenty of” energy. This abundance can lead to waste since most everyday objects are easier and cheaper to replace than fix. But sometimes this excess can lead to creation—a reinvention of waste—as we see in the pages of Make magazine. Continue reading

Into the Open: Positioning Practice :: September 14 – November 23, 2008 :: The U.S. Pavilion for La Biennale di Venezia, 11th International Architecture Exhibition.

Into the Open: Positioning Practice highlights the means by which architects reclaim a role in shaping community and the built environment, to expand understanding of American architectural practice and its relationship to civic participation. The exhibition explores how architects, urban researchers, and community activists are meeting the challenges of creating new work in response to contemporary social conditions and addresses factors challenging traditional methods of architecture, such as shifting socio-cultural demographics, changing geo-political boundaries, uneven economic development, and the explosion of migration and urbanization.
