Open. Cahier no. 23: Autonomy

SKOR | Foundation for Art and Public Domain / NAi Publishers present Open. Cahier on Art and the Public Domain, no. 23: Autonomy — New Forms of Freedom and Independence in Art and Culture:

In this time of ideological and political crises, in which people and things are increasingly thrown back on their own resources, autonomy is considered again. But how does autonomy, the wish to take matters into one’s own hands and have significance independent of old structures, relate to the call for engagement and performativity? This issue, made in collaboration with Sven Lütticken, examines autonomy from the standpoints of art, art history, philosophy, political theory, and cultural criticism, and attempts to escape the limitations of thinking in terms of engagement on the one hand and autonomy on the other.

Theory in Action

Theory in Action, the journal of the Transformative Studies Institute (quarterly publication print ISSN: 1937-0229 electronic ISSN: 1937-0237), is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal, whose scope ranges from the local to the global. Its aim is to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and the discussion of current research (qualitative and quantitative) on the interconnections between theory and action aimed at promoting social justice broadly defined.

TIA publishes papers that connect academic scholarship with activism, what R.K. Merton calls ‘theories of the middle range.’ TIA values radical and unconventional ideas, expressed in different styles, whether academic or journalistic. Continue reading

Internet on Strike Against SOPA and PIPA Legislation

Artists!

The US Congress is about to pass an internet censorship bill written by the copyright and corporate music and film lobbies, claiming that this bill is written in your name to “protect creativity.” The law would allow the government or corporations to censor entire sites — they just have to convince a judge that the site is “dedicated to copyright infringement.”

In fact, PROTECT-IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) are backed and largely written by the Hollywood film industry, namely the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), which is trying to sell goods and ideas that are already free. Continue reading
