Social Housing—Housing the Social [nl Amsterdam]

SKOR| Foundation for Art and Public Domain presents: Actors, Agents and Attendants II: Social Housing—Housing the Social :: November 4-5, 2011 :: Felix Meritis, Keizersgracht 324, Amsterdam.

Social Housing—Housing the Social is a two-day symposium that emphasises the relationship between the waning political and practical imperative of social housing and the broader political and philosophical idea of ‘housing the social.’ Given the increasing global condition of unequal wealth distribution, and the specific urgency brought about by cuts in social and cultural funding in the Netherlands, can forms of cultural production be reclaimed as tools with which to design and defend social space, or are the agents and engineers of such projects merely tools in the further decoration of reduced welfare rights? What do we want cities to accommodate today? Continue reading

The Printing Dress: You Are What You Tweet

The Printing Dress by Asta Roseway and Sheridan Martin Small: You are probably familiar with the old saying, “You are what you eat” but how about, “You are what you tweet?” What if this concept were incorporated into garments of the future? Would you censor yourself, knowing you would reveal your statements to the world around you?

The Printing Dress is an artistic piece that explores the notion of wearable text and its potential impact on the future of fashion, as well as our social identity. Built almost entirely of paper, the dress enables the wearer to enter “thoughts” on to its fabric and wear them as public art. By selecting materials and technologies that draw on the past, present, and future of communication media, we encourage viewers to reflect on the path that has brought us to ubiquitous digital communication and to contemplate its forward evolution.

Radical Prototypes: Allan Kaprow and the Invention of Happenings

Radical Prototypes: Allan Kaprow and the Invention of Happenings by Judith F. Rodenbeck, MIT Press:

“Happenings” have pop connotations that conjure up 1960s youth culture and hippies in public, joyful rebellion. Scholars, meanwhile, locate happenings in a genealogy of avant-garde performance that descends from futurism, surrealism, and Dada through the action painting of the 1950s. In Radical Prototypes, Judith Rodenbeck argues for a more complex etiology. Allan Kaprow coined the term in 1958 to name a new collage form of performance, calling happenings “radical prototypes” of performance art. Rodenbeck offers a rigorous art historical reading of Kaprow’s project and related artworks. She finds that these experiential and experimental works offered not a happy communalism but a strong and canny critique of contemporary sociality. Continue reading

Fibreculture Journal 18, Trans

Fibreculture Journal 18, Trans:

It is now perhaps a commonplace that digital, networked and informational media are extremely transient. They diversify in form and function at a dizzying rate. At the same time, they transit and fuse “social” and “natural” differences in a manner which reconfigures all the worlds involved. It is also perhaps a commonplace to suggest that some established powers have found it difficult to come to grips with this (although this is perhaps beginning to change). For many, from seriously challenged newspaper proprietors to established media disciplines, it might be time to pause for breath, if only for a moment — to regroup and adapt established practices and ideas, to count the survivors from among the old media worlds of just a few years ago.

Live Stage: Tweeting the Revolution [us Cambridge, MA]

Tweeting the Revolution: Agency, Collective Action, and the Negotiation of Risk in a Networked Age — a talk by Beth Coleman (MIT) :: October 18, 2011; 12:30 pm :: Berkman Center, Harvard University, 23 Everett Street, Second floor, Cambridge, MA + webcast live :: RSVP required.

This paper looks at the impact of social media platforms on collective action. In particular, it focuses on spheres of activism where personal risk (bodily or otherwise) is the condition of participation. For this analysis, I discuss interviews conducted with Egyptian activists around the events of Tahrir Square. Issues of copresence, witness, and visibility are central to my discussion. This talk is based on a research paper developed with my coauthor Dr. Mike Ananny. Continue reading

Thimbl, Economic Fiction as a Performative Artwork

On [nettime] Dmytri Kleiner wrote: #Thimbl, Social Media Week, @dsearls and Economic Fiction as a Performative Artwork

Thimbl[1] has been getting some attention lately, party because of my talk at Social Media Week Berlin[2], partly because of a Tweet by the legendary Doc Searls[3].

Despite being part of Transmediale 2010 and winning a distinction at the festival, many people don’t seem to realize that Thimbl is an artwork. It’s a part of Telekommnunisten’s Miscommunication Technologies series along with such works as deadSwap[4] and r15n[5]. Continue reading

CONT3XT.NET presents: Well, Being In The Loop Gets You Ahead. (Iteration III, Progress) with Michael Kargl, Birgit Knoechl, Annja Krautgasser, Wolfgang Lehrner, Les Liens Invisibles, Lisa Rastl :: October 8-21, 2011 :: Opening: October 7; 7:00 pm :: Glockengasse No9, Vienna, Austria.

Progressive thinking and the human striving for something better, truer and more beautiful are directly coupled with the newness and uniqueness of products, services and ideas. Against this is the recognition of previous decades of unredeemed social utopias. Continue reading
