Counterconsciousness – Stephen Willats [de Karlsruhe]

Counterconsciousness – Stephen Willats :: until November 21, 2010 :: Badischer Kunstverein, Waldstraße 3, D – 76133 Karlsruhe, Germany.

The Badischer Kunstverein is pleased to present the London artist Stephen Willats in an extensive solo exhibition. From the 1960s until today, Stephen Willats has developed a pioneering practice based on collaboration, interactivity and participation within the variables of social relationships and settings. Willats creates multi-sensory, multi-dimensional environments to encourage viewers to engage with their own creative and cognitive processes, to re-examine and transform the way they perceive existing reality.

The show, which comprises more than forty artworks, concentrates on Willats’ works on the wasteland–, night- and post-punk context of the late 1970s and 1980s. Several of these works have been shown rarely or never at all and were selected with the artist in a close process. Continue reading

Three Stages in the Art of Public Participation: The Relational, Social and Durational

Three Stages in the Art of Public Participation: The Relational, Social and Durational by Paul O’Neill, Eurozine:

“Participation is not only a form of co-production but also an end product in itself”. Curator, artist and theorist Paul O’Neill traces a development from the site-specific artwork to long-term participatory urban art projects.

“Participation is currently an all-inclusive term for art’s ability to engage with its publics as collaborators, co-producers or other active agents. Regardless of its ubiquity, the term remains contested territory in recent writing on art. This essay charts one possible reading of participation – as a flexible term for variant modes of engagement with art, through its relational, social and durational aspects. In the process, participation is considered not only as a form of co-production but also as an end product in itself, which provides art with its durational and public dimension.” Continue reading here or download PDF here.

NJP Reader: Contributions to an Artistic Anthropology

NJP Reader #1: Contributions to an Artistic Anthropology:

The Nam June Paik Center is dedicated to the artistic and intellectual legacy of Nam June Paik, the renowned Korean-born artist who transformed visual art worldwide. In addition to its function as an exhibition space, the Nam June Paik Art Center developed a new publication, NJP Reader. The aim of the NJP Reader is to recontextualize Nam June Paik’s artistic thought and his ‘random access’ strategies in a topical discursive practice. Leading questions are: What is the meaning of Nam June Paik’s multi-medial experiments, performances, and sculpture for our current artistic practice and discourse? What new dimensions for re-imagining notions of technology, ubiquity, and human experience do Nam June Paik’s thinking and practice suggest? How does his practice potentiate paradigm shifts in broader understandings of the potentialities and characteristics of alternative processes of participation afforded by the introduction of media technology into artistic practice?

Conflict Kitchen [us Pittsburgh]

Conflict Kitchen — by John Peña, Jon Rubin, and Dawn Weleski — is a take-out restaurant that only serves cuisine from countries that the United States is in conflict with. The food is served out of a take-out style storefront, which will rotate identities every 4 months to highlight another country. Each Conflict Kitchen iteration will be augmented by events, performances, and discussion about the the culture, politics, and issues at stake with each county we focus on.

Kubideh Kitchen is an Iranian take-out restaurant that serves kubideh in freshly baked barbari bread with onion, mint, and basil. Developed in collaboration with members of the Pittsburgh Iranian community, the sandwich is packaged in a custom-designed wrapper that includes interviews with Iranians both in Pittsburgh and Iran on subjects ranging from Iranian food and poetry to the current political turmoil.

blown up! Temporary Autonomous Classroom [fr Paris]

blown up! The Temporary Autonomous Classroom — an eventwork by Silvia Maglioni & Graeme Thomson :: Dates Below :: Mains d’Oeuvres, 1, rue Charles Garnier, 93 400 Saint-Ouen, Paris.

blown up! is an eventwork, mapping an investigation at once philosophical, cinematic and relational. In a manner similar to Antonioni’s film Blow-Up which follows a photographer’s quest to locate a body in a London park from a blow-up of a snapshot he has taken, Silvia Maglioni & Graeme Thomson explored 1970s video footage of Gilles Deleuze’s courses at the University of Vincennes to locate participants in the seminar who then became collaborators in their film, Facs of Life.

直接当下:网络文化与现实诗学

networked.jpg直接当下:网络文化与现实诗学 by Kazys Varnelis; Chinese Translation by Lily & Honglei:

在整个九十年代,数字计算和网络技术在很大程度上只应用于办公室工作,其文化影响仅限于个别专有领域的爱好者。如果说这十年的新媒体艺术形成了一种非常重要的艺术亚文化,它基本上还是孤立和自我参照的,部分原因是由于艺术家们对黑客文化的迷恋,由于长期以来格林伯格主义者 (Greenbergian) 的艺术审察, 还由于艺术机构将其边缘化. 在电脑离开有限的用户群体, 成为有广泛社会功能之前,瓦克﹒寇司克 (Vuk Cosic),朱迪(Jodi),阿列克谢﹒舒利金 (Alexei Shulgin),和希思﹒班廷 (Heath Bunting) 等艺术家重演了二十世纪初的前卫战略,同时将图形与八十年代黑客文化的程序演示平等化[1].

今天,相比之下,数字技术,是日常生活中的明确无误的存在,并逐渐与地来自主流社会的需要和公约不可分割的. 网络文化是一个广泛的社会文化的转变,就像后现代性,并不限于科技发展或“新媒体” [2]. 正因为数字和网络技术的成熟与当代文化是不可分割的, 我们必须在更宽广的背景下理解其, 事实上, 这甚至比电视产生于后现代的现象更令人瞩目. 今天, 可以说, 所有的艺术都是网络艺术的一种延伸.

Dora García: Where do characters go when the story is over? [es Santiago]

Dora García: Where do characters go when the story is over? :: October 8, 2009 – January 31, 2010
 :: CGAC (Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea), Rúa Ramón del Valle Inclán s/n, 15704 Santiago de Compostela, Spain.

Contrary to the idea that art is aimed at the general public, Dora García (Valladolid 1965) is interested in what attracts the attention of each individual, hence opting for radically conceptual forms, both accessible and elegant, and for projecting singularly codified messages or superimposing narratives to reality in a way that a specific relation with each of the spectators may arise.
