The Deaths of the Author: Reading and Writing in Time

The Deaths of the Author: Reading and Writing in Time by Jane Gallop, Duke University Press.

For thirty years “the death of the author” has been a familiar poststructuralist slogan in literary theory, widely understood and much debated as a dismissal of the author, a declaration of the writer’s irrelevance to the reader’s experience. In this concise book, Jane Gallop revitalizes this hackneyed concept by considering not only the abstract theoretical death of the author but also the writer’s literal death, as well as other authorial “deaths,” such as obsolescence. Through bravura close readings of the influential literary theorists Roland Barthes, Jacques Derrida, Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, and Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, she shows that the death of the author is best understood as a relation to temporality, not only for the reader but especially for the writer.

Just Grounds: Cape Town [se Stockholm]

Resources.11 — Just Grounds: Cape Town — Post-graduate course in Architecture and Urban Planning :: Royal Institute of Art, Mejan Arc/ Architecture, 103 26 Stockholm, Sweden :: Deadline for Applications: June 13, 2011.

Urban Africa: Africa is rapidly urbanizing. 40% of the continent’s population is now urban, but despite Africa’s extensive natural resources and strong economic growth, neither international nor local investments find their way to the cities. In post-colonial Africa the City is still consider an exception. Basic infrastructure is still lacking and urbanization is occurring primarily in the form of slums, as silent encroachments. However, African urban researchers note that the African city should not be considered simply incomplete versions of their western counterparts. Indeed, the African city is following its own route with a very different map. Continue reading

Calabi Portal Project RFQ

Calabi Portal Projecta laboratory for ideas and the imagination :: Call for Proposals — No Deadline.

This competition is open to visionary designers, artists, architects, and scientists, and any collaborative combination. All designs will be theoretical. No background or experience in engineering, construction, or actual fabrication materials is required as the structure will be self-generating and assembling. The challenge is to conceive of the possibilities of an architectural visualization of 10 dimensional space incorporating the six dimensional Calabi-Yau manifold. The proposed structure is to take the form of what we loosely describe as a “Tower”, and is open to interpretation. It may also contain or emanate light and sound.

See website for more information. Sponsored by the Multiverse Research Institute.

Fibreculture #17: unnatural ecologies

From the Editorial: “This issue is an exercise in media ecology that is paradoxically unnatural. Instead of assuming a natural connection to the established tradition of Media Ecology in the Toronto-school fashion of Marshall McLuhan, Neil Postman, and the work of scholars involved in the Media Ecology Association, our issue stems from another direction; its theoretical orientation is more inspired by the work of Felix Guattari and engages with several overlapping ecologies that are aesthetico-political in their nature. It stems from a more politically oriented way of understanding the various scales and layers through which media are articulated together with politics, capitalism and nature, in which processes of media and technology cannot be detached from subjectivation. In this context, media ecology is itself a vibrant sphere of dynamics and turbulences including on its technical level. Continue reading

Never written stories [es Madrid]

Never written stories :: Symposium: June 20-23, 2011 :: CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo, Av. Constitución 23, 28931 Móstoles, Madrid, Spain :: Open Call for research projects on artistic theory and practice — Deadline for Applications: May 16.

Beyond the economic problem, the negativity of the current crisis is basically linked to the deactivation of the capacity of inventing a future. However, we must remind that every crisis opens up spaces of possibility. To assume that, as immaterial producers, we all participate in the creation of collective imagination entails the risk that neoliberal directives use as a tool the triad constituted by “innovation-creativity-invention.” In this inevitably shared space, critical artistic practices keep on defending the power of imagination as a political faculty that unite memory and prediction.

The Juxtaposium: Seeking an Alternative to the Symposium

The Juxtaposium: Open Letter/Invitation to Event Organisers from Baruch Gottlieb, Brian Holmes, Alessandro Ludovico, Esther Polak and Ivar van Bekkum, Edward Schanken:

Curators, festival and symposia organizers, please use this letter as a starting point to help us develop together a new symposium format. Use our desire to speak about each other’s work and make it fuel the first “Juxtaposium”.

Time for change: Theoretical and critical reflection and exchange are fundamental strengths of New Media Art practice, and our tradition of festivals and symposia is part of that. But it is time to push beyond conventional formats and academic conventions for discussing our work. It is time to put aside polite camaraderie and pursue more critical forms of debate that will make constructive contributions to strengthening our practices and discourses. Continue reading

Live Stage: Rethinking the Politics of Art [us Philadelphia]

Rethinking the Politics of Art: The Machete Group :: March 19, 2011; 8:00 – 10:00 pm :: Slought Foundation, 4017 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA.

In an era in which many have declared the failure of the avant-garde and neo-avant-garde attempts to link art and politics, the Machete Group proposes to revisit this general problematic by emphasizing the need to reconfigure the conceptual matrix used to think the politics of art. Through an exploration of contemporary artistic strategies, the institutional framework of the arts, and the central role of systems of production, distribution and reception, we examine–from motley perspectives–a crucial question for contemporary aesthetic practice: Continue reading
