A PUBLIC CONVERSATION WITH THE SILENT CIRCLE

Invitation / Einladung

A PUBLIC CONVERSATION WITH
THE SILENT CIRCLE


Start: 20 Uhr/8pm


The Silent Circle is a group of protagonists, which is
only present through a special form of communication.
Their identification is a circle drawn by one of the
initiators of the group.
While the very translucent and open form of the
group itself depends on the changing number of
participants, the drawn symbol as a common starting
point of their conversations leaves traces to a number
of unheard voices.

//

The Silent Circle ist eine Gruppe von Protagonisten, die
nur durch eine spezielle Form der Kommunikation präsent
ist. Ihr Erkennungszeichen ist ein Kreis, der von einem der
Initiatoren gezeichnet wird.
Während die sehr durchlässige und offene Form der
Gruppe selbst von der wechselnden Besucherzahl
abhängt, hinterlässt das gezeichnete Symbol als
gemeinsamer Startpunkt ihrer Unterhaltungen Spuren für
einige ungehörte Stimmen.

Pelagian Voids + New Materialisms (Station 2)

Pelagian Voids + New Materialisms (Station 2)

We are glad to announce two separate events organized by grey) (area – space for contemporary and media art.
 
August 27, at 9 pm, in front of St. Peter's church (small chapel next to the cathedral), city of Korčula
multimedia concert Pelagian Voids by Manja Ristić and Marko Paunović
 
August 29,  9 – 11 pm, grey) (area gallery, city of Korčula
New Materialisms (Station 2), exhibition opening with artist talks by Alexei Blinov and Bronac Ferran. Exhibition is open until September 20, every day from 8 to 9 pm, or by an appointment. Curator is Darko Fritz.  


Manja Ristić and Marko Paunović will perform their multimedia piece titled Pelagian Voices for the first time. Manja Ristić, violinist and multimedia artist living both in Belgrade and Korčula, member of the association grey) (area and ArtSync web radio editor, and Marko Paunović, ambient artist and sound sculptor from Niš (Serbia), began their cooperation in 2015 in the frame of the concert series improvE, which promotes research in new music. Following similar interests in the field of experimental electronics and electro-acoustics, Manja and Marko continued their cooperation with the range of multimedia projects.
Pelagian Voids piece is inspired by meta-spaces of litoral environment, and while being rounded by poetical sound narratives it takes us down the subtle personal memory lane and its spaces.
 

On Saturday, September 29 at 9 pm, the exhibition New Materialisms (Station 2) will open at the grey) (area gallery. This exhibition is the second one in the series of long-term program of exhibitions conceptualized in the collaborative process that has been taking place among grey) (area - space for contemporary and media art from Croatia, HICA (Highlands Institute for Contemporary Art) from Scotland,  and Technopolitics, association for advancement of discursive formats between art and science from Vienna.

At the opening the artist Alexei Blinov will present his work that includes so far inexplicable experiments, while the curator from the UK Bronac Ferran will give a lecture on Concrete poetry titled Graphic constellations - visual poetry and the properties of space, conceptualized after the working experience gained at the exhibition of the same title which was co-curated this year with Will Hillo, in the frame of jubilee Cambridge on 50th anniversary of First International Exhibition of Concrete, Kinetic and Phonetic Poetry.

Simultaneously with the exhibition New Materialisms (Station 2) in Korčula, HICA also presents the film by Vladislav Knežević in the frame of its exhibition Programmable States? (which was developed through curatorial discussion between grey) (area and HICA), together with works by Paul Brown and William Latham. Both exhibitions are open until September 20, 2015.
 
New Materialisms (Station 2) explores the German philosopher Max Bense’s identification of the ‘aesthetic condition’, and his proposition that ‘the aesthetic condition is as material as the physical condition of any observed object’. His analysis pursued the goal of ‘programs for the production of aesthetic conditions’, using early computing machines. Materials relating to the infamous clash at a 1970 panel discussion between Bense and Joseph Beuys, which has been described as ‘the visibly spectacular finale to the project of a rational, mathematically oriented aesthetics’, will be included in the exhibition.

New Materialisms series aims at reflexive production tackling historically divergent art practices and to them related discursive fields of Concrete and Conceptual Art, as defined in the 1960s (especially through the notions of modernity and postmodernity), but also with understanding of those practices via optics of post-media approach to art and post-digital condition of our cotidianity (whereby the digital penetrates every aspect of our social body). In that sense the project's intention is to formulate dialogues among important authors of these previous periods and contemporary practitioners who work within post-media context, mirroring “organismic” conditions while assuming the design of esthetic experience as important mechanism which has its agency in the process of creating physical world.

About the works included in the exhibition New Materialisms (Station 2) taking place in Korčula:

Experimental film titled Binary Pitch by Zagreb based author Vladislav Knežević is inspired by Max Bense's informational aesthetics from the 1960s. Architecture of the auditorium is a physical, institutional space and the space which generates meaning. The key ideas from Max Bense’s ‘Aesthetics and Programming’ (1968) are coded in zeros and ones and animated as lifting and lowering the seats. In the geometry of a static shot, elements of architecture and space become the subject of a visual experiment. The video consists of three parts: activation (drawing the auditorium out) – coding (central part) – deactivation (drawing the auditorium in).



Installation Open Source Vostok by Alexei Blinov, Russian artist based in London, unveils the materiality of the surface of our planet as it was 400 000 years ago via series of hologram shots of ice samples taken from the bottom of the frozen Vostok lake, about four kilometers under its surface.

New podcast: Interview with John Chowning , the inventor of FM synthesis: the technique that revolutionized the world of synthesizers and the sound of electronic music in the eighties.

New podcast:Interview with John Chowning , the inventor ofFM synthesis: the technique that revolutionized the world of synthesizers andthe sound of electronic music in the eighties. 

 

Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/john-chowning-/capsula

 

As a man of many, interconnected facets, John Chowning has played a leading role in several chapters of the history of electronic music. As a composer, his is one of the few essential names in any overview of computer music made in the United States in the early seventies. In 1964, with the help of Max Mathews (from the legendary Bell Labs, where computer music was virtually born) and David Poole from Stanford University, Chowning began using Stanford’s Artificial Intelligence laboratory for his experiments. Years later, in 1975, he founded the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) at Stanford, which remains one of the key centres in music technology research anywhere in the world. Lastly, in his role as developer, Chowning is the inventor of FM synthesis: the technique that revolutionized the world of synthesizers and the sound of electronic music in the eighties. 

 

In this podcast, John Chowning charts a historical overview of the different branches of his artistic career, focusing on his interest in the human voice, the creation of new sonorities, and being a pioneer in a discipline at a time when using computers to generate music was a leap into the void between creative eccentricity and scientific adventure.

A one-day celebration of the intersections of LIGHT, SPACE and TECHNOLOGY 

Theme: NATURAL LIGHT // PHYSICAL LIGHT

OSLO LUX 2015 takes the International Year of Light beyond the electric bulb, investigating how BIOLUMINESCENCE and PHOSPHORESCENCE can be used in art, design and architecture. OSLO LUX further investigates the ways that our environments have been altered using light technologies and how that affects us, our FUTURE, our WELL-BEING and our PERCEPTION of space and place, and even how artworks that GENERATE their own light can sustain LIFE itself.

OSLO LUX 2015 features a range of international and national artists, designers and architects working with light and creative technologies. They will be presenting the latest trends and discoveries in this rapidly developing field.

Presenters include Eduardo Kac, Little Sun (Olafur Eliasson), Koo Jeong A, Natasha Barrett and Antony Adams from Glowingplant.com +

LUX is a series of conferences and associated exhibitions that probe the boundaries of light, space and interaction. The events explore recent developments in art, design and architecture in this fascinating and evolving area.

Media Art Histories Conference : Re-CREATE 2015, MONTREAL, Canada - November 5 - 8, 2015

*Media Art Histories : Re-CREATE 2015 *
The 6th International and 10th anniversary Conference on the Histories
of Media Art, Science and Technology
**MONTREAL, Canada - November 5 - 8, 2015**

The 6th International Conference on the Histories of Media Art,
Science
and Technology - Re-CREATE, will be hosted by Hexagram - the
International Network for Research-Creation in Media Arts, Design,
Technology and Digital Culture, and held jointly at Concordia
University
and Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). Following Banff 2005,
Berlin
2007, Melbourne 2009, Liverpool 2011 and Riga 2013, the Media Art
History Boards and Re-Create Co-Chairs invite you to attend Re-Create
2015 in Montreal. Re-Create proposes the central question of what
theories, methodologies and techniques can be used to understand past,
present and indeed, future paradigms of creative material practice
involving technologies within research contexts, from a historical and
critical point of view. Given the quebec and canadian origin of
research-creation, Montreal offers a unique and vibrant context in
which
to continue to discuss issues andpractices of research-creation from
the
perspectives of different disciplines. Re-Create will host four days
of
keynotes, panels, workshops and exhibitions on the histories of
networked digital, electronic and technological media arts.

**SESSIONS:* *
*:: Theoretical Currents : *How do the Senses, Animals and the
Apocalypse inform research-creation practices ?
*:: Sites : *How have sites of research and practice evolved in Latin
America, Eastern Europe, Japan, Sweden and Indigenous Cultures?
*:: Histories of the Studio Lab : *How have Australian, British,
Canadian and American artists historically worked in academia,
industry
and generative art?
*:: New Methods : *What can the concept of co-production (STS),
musique
concrète, intersectionality theory and critical race studies, as well
as
the debates about the "practice turn" in higher education provide to
the
historical and critical positioning of practice?
*:: Digital Humanities and Critical Practices : *What are the
challenges and the future of transdisciplinary collaboration? What can
media archeology do for the humanities and contemporary academic
culture? How has failure impacted practice-led research?
*:: Curatorial Actions and Practices : *How have philosophy,
industrial
creation,  feminism, sound and "imageness" historically entered into
curatorial practices?

**KEYNOTES:* *
JOAN JONAS / United States
SKAWENNATI / Montreal, Canada
CHRISTINE VAN ASSCHE / France

The 6th International Conference on the Histories of Media Art,
Science
and Technology - Re-CREATE, will be hosted by Hexagram - the
International Network for Research-Creation in Media Arts, Design,
Technology and Digital Culture, and held jointly at Concordia
University
and Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). Following Banff 2005,
Berlin
2007, Melbourne 2009, Liverpool 2011 and Riga 2013, the Media Art
History Boards and Re-Create Co-Chairs invite you to attend Re-Create
2015 in Montreal. Re-Create proposes the central question of what
theories, methodologies and techniques can be used to understand past,
present and indeed, future paradigms of creative material practice
involving technologies within research contexts, from a historical and
critical point of view. Given the quebec and canadian origin of
research-creation, Montreal offers a unique and vibrant context in
which
to continue to discuss issues andpractices of research-creation from
the
perspectives of different disciplines. Re-Create will host four days
of
keynotes, panels, workshops and exhibitions on the histories of
networked digital, electronic and technological media arts.

**SESSIONS:* *
*:: Theoretical Currents : *How do the Senses, Animals and the
Apocalypse inform research-creation practices ?
*:: Sites : *How have sites of research and practice evolved in Latin
America, Eastern Europe, Japan, Sweden and Indigenous Cultures?
*:: Histories of the Studio Lab : *How have Australian, British,
Canadian and American artists historically worked in academia,
industry
and generative art?
*:: New Methods : *What can the concept of co-production (STS),
musique
concrète, intersectionality theory and critical race studies, as well
as
the debates about the "practice turn" in higher education provide to
the
historical and critical positioning of practice?
*:: Digital Humanities and Critical Practices : *What are the
challenges and the future of transdisciplinary collaboration? What can
media archeology do for the humanities and contemporary academic
culture? How has failure impacted practice-led research?
*:: Curatorial Actions and Practices : *How have philosophy,
industrial
creation,  feminism, sound and "imageness" historically entered into
curatorial practices?

MM: only a few spots left...


MetaConstruct Manifesto:

annihilation poetics and amagideon art in an authoritarian and antagonistic age

<http://www.bbrace.net/M-scans/M-scans.html>

  Contemporary "Artworld artists" on the self-aggrandizing circuit, are invariably
reduced to illustrating and trivializing popular political opinions under the
deceitful guise of creating clever cultural currency and cloying "relevancy." Are
you just as amazed to learn that apparently most of these (disingenuous)
"artists" today have regular commercial gallery exhibits, international
representation, government funding, cushy teaching jobs, critical support,
duplicitous colleagues, fancy homes and professional studios/supplies?... (While
basic necessities are routinely denied to many of us our entire working-lives by
creepy, arrogant Artworld and Corporate despots...) Accordingly, my MetaConstruct
installations can now only occur in the aftermath of significant cultural
devastation -- gutted, globalized galleries, discredited
curators, fraudulent
Arts-funding and the hoax of institutional Art-history...

In the 20+ years since my last public installation, these various, modest
components have continued to be developed beyond their depicted states
here/online. Obviously, increasingly corrupt and incestuous Art Institutions
cannot be trusted to exhibit and support, fine integral work that enables idioms
rather than regurgitated stylistic/ideological constraints and apologetics...

  Perhaps, at-heart, this work was always an independent aspiration seeking
intimate constellar conditions for its long-regarded re-entry into a respectable
realm -- poised as it was, on the perpetually charred cultural rubble of the
present -- but we still yearn for righteous revenge, equitable access to
resources, and an end to irresponsible, supercilious, cabalistic, cultural
imperialism.

Review of Arthur Kroker's 'Body drift'.

Sorry for any cross posting...

Review of Arthur Kroker's 'Body drift'.

Review by Marc Garrett.

Body Drift by Arthur Kroker, takes the work of three leading women thinkers as its main focus. Re-examining their critical perspectives and creative processes - assemblages, remixing and cyborgs- Kroker terms the emerging technological spectre. He examines the connections between what he sees as Judith Butler’s postmodernism, Katherine Hayles’s posthumanism, and Donna Haraway’s companionism.

Re: Ballymaloe International Poetry Prize

_______________________________________________


THE MOTH MAGAZINE :


Dear Rebecca O'Connor,

Thank you for your e-mail.

You indicate that the Ballymaloe International Poetry Prize "is not state-funded, and has never claimed to be an Irish poetry prize."  Then you acknowledge that you "do have an Irish sponsor."  Are you asking me to believe that the Ballymaloe Cookery School (your sponsor) and The Moth itself do not benefit in any way from the economic, social, and cultural actions of public institutions within the Republic of Ireland?  This I do not believe.  Indeed, I do not believe it in any way.

The sponsor is Irish, and the magazine is based in Ireland, the complete matrix of Ireland, so why should Irish be banned by the sponsor and the publisher and not seen to be fit to compete for this international prize?

Many Irish-language poets have an international reputation, Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill, Gearóid Mac Lochlainn, Biddy Jenkinson, Gabriel Rosenstock, Cathal Ó Searcaigh, Liam Ó Muirthile, Colm Breathnach, etc., etc.

There are younger poets who may well have an international reputation ahead of them, but not if they are confined to Gaelic ghettoes and told "NO IRISH NEED APPLY" when an attractive prize is offered by an Irish sponsor.

If you did not willfully intend to exclude Irish-language writers from the Ballymaloe Prize process, neither did you intend to include them.  Your "rules" insist on English ONLY.  How foolish do you think people to be?

Your "International Prize" is fee-based.  Most artists and writers I know would never include on a C.V. or an Artist's Résumé a fee-based competition.  Most arts-councils, trusts, or foundations that fund writers in the U.S., Canada, and other countries actively discourage artists from entering fee-based competitions.

Indeed, I cannot imagine why poet laureate Billy Collins ever agreed to be your Judge.

You insist that the Ballymaloe Prize is "international," yet only in English.  You seem to have the same notions of the world that were entertained by Queen Victoria.

You suggest that I am "perturbed."

You add:  "I hope this puts your mind at ease."

What condescension!

I suggest that you do an author-search on my name at ...


or at ...


There you will discover that I AM an international writer.  I have had plays and performance-art events sponsored in more than 30 countries, and in multiple languages.  I have had books and chapbooks published in a number of countries, with more on the way.

Do you really think you can dismiss a critic by a mere flutter of patronizing words?

Emphatically,

Séamas Cain

Dear Seamas,

I understand you are perturbed that Irish language poets cannot enter the Ballymaloe International Poetry Prize. The prize, which is not state-funded, and has never claimed to be an Irish poetry prize (though we do have an Irish sponsor) is an international poetry prize. Part of the appeal for us is that we receive entries from all over the world, reflecting the international flavour of The Moth.

I hope this puts your mind at ease.

All very best wishes,

Rebecca
