Video Vortex #8 [hr Zagreb]

Video Vortex #8: The Politics, Cultures and Art of Online Video :: May 17-19, 2012 :: The Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb, Croatia.

Video Vortex has taken place twice in Brussels and Amsterdam and once in Ankara, Split and Yogyakarta. The Video Vortex network was founded in in 2007 and deals with the cultural, political and artistics aspects of online video. Video Vortex 8 is organized by the Kazimir Association in Split and The Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb in collaboration with the Institute of Network Cultures in Amsterdam.

The moving image and the Internet are still defining the parameters of their mutual relationship. The conference will focus on issues concerning changes in contemporary art and cinema as well as broader cultural, social and technological issues.

Video Vortex 8 will consist of a conference, an exhibition, screenings and performances. This call pertains to the conference. Artists who will present work at the conference will also be included in the accompanying exhibition.

Themes:

1. Contemporary art and online video.

Museums which follow and present contemporary Art as well as Centres for Art, Media and Technology have specific contexts in which they present and preserve the moving image in the 21st century. Spatial issues and exclusivity are put in relation to the constant virtual presence of artwork. Fast changing technologies are undermining the very sense of the preservation of the moving image in an online
context.

2. Theoretical discourses and online video.

Concepts related to the aesthetics and structure of the moving image. Including, but not limited to, online-only production, torrent-based original programming, YouTube-centered narrative and artwork, community-funded cinema and scholarship in an online environment.

3. Social networks and online video in the region.

Reports on new the discourses of online video in Middle and Southeast Europe.

4. Techno-colonialism, surveillance and control of the distribution of the moving image.

Shutting down or channelling online video. The possibility of stealing the online-originating revolutions in North Africa. The technological dominance and control of worldviews and basic human value systems. The speed of communication and what is left to those isolated from it.

5. The perspective of online cinema.

The relationship between film and the Internet. What is happening to independent cinema due to technical accessibility and online quality in the making, producing and distribution of films? Do we see specific new film forms in the online environment? The end of 35mm film. How does digital cinema distribution work, from DCP (Digital Cinema Package) passwords to open online video/film collections or cinematic databases?

6. Artists talk about their own work and research in online video.

Presentations of artistic practices related to the Internet from artists participating in the exhibition which runs concurrently with the conference. These practices include working on the web and using the web as a medium and using the Internet as found footage; in other words, it is channeling the art process through Internet-based communication. Other topics could include the Internet as a public presentation venue for artists and discussions about curating online.

7. Technological aspects of new developments in participatory video.

The moving image on the Internet has opened itself to tagging, telepresence and social communication. Can it still open itself further through visual browsers and HTML5? With HTML5 authors can script their own user interface, but there is also a way to trigger a user interface provided by the user agent – is this a seed for a new manner of online video communication? Does it indicate developments of open personalization and/or the further fragmentation of users? Other issues could include technologies of the private and the public spheres.
