List Cultures and the Art of Moderation: Interview with Geert Lovink

List Cultures and the Art of Moderation: Interview with Geert Lovink by Donata Marletta:

Donata Marletta: Hi, I’m Donata, a PhD student from the Centre for Tourism and Cultural Change at Leeds Metropolitan University in the UK. My thesis is about the emergence of new social spaces created by festivals devoted to art and technology, and their link with online networks built around common interest in new media, art and society. First of all I would like to know more about your background and how you got involved in the net culture scene.

Geert Lovink: From 1977-83 I studied political science at the University of Amsterdam. In this period I was active in anti-nuclear movements, squatting and autonomous student groups. After my graduation I was unemployed and lived in West-Berlin. Continue reading

Altermodernism: The Age of the Stupid

Altermodernism: The Age of the Stupid by Ellie Harrison, Furtherfield.org: “”Postmodernism is dead” declares Nicolas Bourriaud in the opening line of his manifesto for our new global cultural era – the ‘altermodern’. As a preface to the latest Tate Triennial exhibition of the same name, the French curator and theorist sets about defining what he sees as the parameters of our contemporary society and offering paradigms for artistic approaches to navigating and negotiating them.

This essay aims to identify what the birth of this new era tells us about our culture’s relationship to time. It will explore how we choose to define the periods in which we live and how our relationships with the past, present and future seem to constantly evolve. As a central focus, it brings together two examples of cultural events from 2009 which have both, in semi-revolutionary ways, attempted to define our current age. Continue reading

DATA browser 04: Creating Insecurity

DATA browser 04: Creating Insecurityart and culture in the age of security (2009):: edited by Wolfgang Sützl & Geoff Cox:

‘Today we are facing extreme and most dangerous developments in the thought of security. In the course of a gradual neutralisation of politics and the progressive surrender of traditional tasks of the state, security imposes itself as the basic principle of state activity. What used to be one among several decisive measures of public administration until the first half of the twentieth century, now becomes the sole criterion of political legitimation. The thought of security entails an essential risk. A state which has security as its sole task and source of legitimacy is a fragile organism; it can always be provoked by terrorism to become itself terrorist.’ Continue reading

Virtual Mercury Poetry Shuttle Landing on Second Life

UPDATE: SEE VIDEOS BELOW :: 2009 … ON THE CENTENARY OF ITALIAN FUTURISM … ON 40. ANNIVERSARY OF THE FIRST LUNAR LANDING … THE FIRST ITALIAN POETRY SHUTTLE LANDING ON SECOND LIFE!

Maybe poets are like aliens on Earth, but they are welcome on board on my shuttle. Maybe poetry is like watching from an extreme point of view, other perspective, something to preserve in our globalized and homologated, standardized world. Maybe our world is a place from which to escape… But certainly we are going to come back, for affirming the point of view of poetry against power, violence, destruction of cultures and identities. Happy of this new collaboration with the artist, curator, and friend, Marco Nereo Rotelli in the Venice Biennial, I invite you all to come with me on board: let’s save poetry, let’s save the differences, memory, identity, ourselves. Virtual Mercury House is dedicated to my friend visual and performance poet Eugenio Miccini. (Caterina Davinio) Continue reading

Live Stage: If You Lived Here Still… [us NYC]

If You Lived Here Still… by Martha Rosler (1989) :: August 28 – October 31, 2009 :: Opening Reception: August 28; 6:00 pm :: e-flux, 41 Essex Street, New York City.

If You Lived Here… was, in Yvonne Rainer’s words, “a vivid demonstration of how an art exhibition can constitute a radically different approach, one that can offer not only a diversity of objects but can contextualize a social field in and from which the objects are produced and derive their meaning. In other words, art exhibition does not have to separate, or isolate, its objects from the conditions in and under which those objects have been produced.

Part research-based artwork, part curated group show (with three discrete exhibitions, four public meetings, and numerous auxiliary events), part discursive series on and around the subject of homelessness and housing in America, Continue reading
