V2_ Newsletter November 2014

V2_ Newsletter November 2014

www.v2.nl

In November there’s no less than three Blowup events at V2_. On 6 and
7 November there is a two day extravaganza on new materials and new
methods – including a workshop. On 27 November we have invited a
variety of non-expert experts to bring hidden knowledge to light. If
that’s not enough, we present two new printed books, and there is an
exciting collaboration with Dutch artist Renzo Martens and the
Institute for Human Activities.

Blowup: New Materials, New Methods

V2_'s research into Innovation in Extreme Scenarios was inspired by
the amazing but true story of Geoffrey Pyke and his dream to build an
aircraft carrier made of a special kind of ice that he had invented.
Pyke was widely acknowledged as an eccentric but brilliant innovator
who contributed to many aspects of society. The British Security
Service (MI5) has recently declassified a treasure trove of
information about Pyke and his contributions to the Allies' efforts in
WWII. British writer Henry Hemming has written a new biography of Pyke
based on these new revelations. In researching this book, Hemming
discovered evidence of a method for innovation that Pyke followed, and
it is this method we will explore in a workshop on ‘How to Pyke’. As

Open Call: Nonhuman subjectivities- deadline 15 December, 2014

OPEN CALL - Nonhuman subjectivities





Four to five hundred years ago Copernicus and Galileo 'removed' the Earth (and humanity) from the centre of the universe. In Western Philiosophy this coincides with the 'epistemological turn' away from cosmology. Western civilization through the enlightenment and into the modern age has continued to place the human experience at the center of existence. Postmodernism, for example, has reveled in human subjectivity, almost to the point of denying all else.

In response to recent cultural and scientific developments Art Laboratory Berlin is initiating an open call for art works, texts and cooperative works with artists, scholars and scientists on the general theme of non-human subjectivities.

Recent philosophical works by i.a. Graham Harman, Quentin Meillasoux, Isabelle Stengers and John Gray have questioned the solely human role of subjectivity that has formed the core of 'humanism' over the past five centuries.

We suggest a new multiplicity of viewpoints and an exploration of non-human intelligence, agency and subjectivity, that make up our planet (and beyond).

Possible topics could include

  • Perspectives under threat - non-human viewpoints during the great species die off.
  • Bacterial viewpoints - how microbes communicate, interact and experience the world.
  • Non-human perspectives - intelligence and agency in animals, plants, bacteria.
  • Re-definition of intelligence, agency and sentience in ways that are not anthropomorphic.
  • What do some of these perspectives make of Homo sapiens? e.g.- 90% of the cells in our body do not have human DNA -we are a mere host, a topography, for billions of bacteria and fungi.
  • How about agency (and even intelligence) beyond life - virii or crystals for instance.
  • Are complex data systems, algorithms, artificial intelligence beginning to have points of view, and forms of agency that are beyond human comprehension?


Art Laboratory Berlin is seeking submissions and proposals predominantly for exhibitions, performances and workshops, but is also interested in cooperation with scholars and scientists for the production of a series of lectures, texts and a symposium

The deadline for entries is 15 December, 2014.
Chosen proposals will form part of our 2016-17 programme

Please submit your proposal by email to: nonhumanisms(at)artlaboratory-berlin.org

The application should include a proposal (not longer than 5 pages), a CV and work portfolio (not longer than 10 pages). We ask that you keep the size of attachments altogether under 5MB. For video or other large files we encourage the use of links. In rare exceptions proposals may be accepted by post, if a request is first sent by email. Please title the subject line: POST RQST.

the return of the network commons


-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hi,

some of you have probably already noticed this via fb or rss, I am writing a
new book on, working title, "The Rise of the Network Commons".

It returns to the topos of the wireless commons on which I worked during
the early 2000s. In this new version, combining original research from
my German book Freie Netze (2004) and new research conducted in the
context of the EU funded project Confine, the exciting world of wireless
community network projects such as Guifi.net and Freifunk, gets
interspersed with philosophical reflections on the relationship between
technology, art, politics and history.

In chapters yet to come, I want to treat this topic more
internationally, thus interested to learn about projects from all over
the world. Currently, I am preparing the next chapter on "social
technologies" starting with firmware hack of OpenWrt in 2003 aftre GPL
violation. What interest me in particular is the relationship between
development of a technology and its usage, follwoing notions such as
participatory design and social technologies ... again, grateful for any
useful hints, experiences, stories

Here is the work in progress
http://thenextlayer.org/NetworkCommons

Even if a chapter is already written, it does not mean that it has
achieved stable form. I am happy to accomodate input on all aspects of
the project. Publishing early draft texts is part of my chosen
methodology in this case

looking forward to hearing from you
best
Armin

CFP: Nations, Identities and Art Histories in Central Europe (Norwich, 9-11 Apr 2015)

From: Klara Kemp-Welch <klara.kemp-welch@...>
Date: Oct 30, 2014
Subject: CFP: Session at AAH Annual Conference (Norwich, 9-11 Apr 2015)

Sainsbury Institute for Art, UEA, Norwich, April 9 - 11, 2015
Deadline: Nov 10, 2014

AAH Session on Nations, Identities and Art Histories in Central Europe 
AAH2015 Annual Conference at the University of East Anglia Sainsbury 
Institute

Session Convenors:
Klara Kemp-Welch, The Courtauld Institute of Art, London,
klara.kemp-welch@...
Beata Hock, University of Leipzig, beata.hock@...

The collapse of Imperial and Soviet empires after the Great War and the 
Cold War saw the (re-)formation of individual nation states and the 
production of new cultural identities. These changes brought new 
opportunities for artists and art historians across Central Europe and 
beyond, but also new challenges. This session invites participants to 
explore how art, art history, and criticism in Central Europe have 
engaged with shifting approaches to nation and identity (embracing 
considerations such as class, ethnicity, gender, religion) across the 
modern and the contemporary. The session invites papers that consider: 
the critical framing of domestic or national artistic developments in 
relation to local concerns; Central European art in an international 
framework; histories of minority communities; Central European 
historiography; the construction of identity through print media and 
popular culture. What do 'minor' art histories reveal about mainstream 
ones, and vice-versa? To what extent are the processes observable in 
national and international art and art history between the wars 
comparable to the tensions between the local and global that have come 
to the forefront since the end of the Cold War? In view of the present 
violence in the Ukraine, the resurgence of nationalisms across Europe in 
the post-Cold War period, and the alarming political polarisation in 
many European countries today, this session invites participants to 
critically reconsider ideas of nation and identity in the region from a 
range of art historical perspectives.

Paper proposals, to be sent to the session convenor in accordance with 
proposal guidelines. Paper proposal deadline: 10 November 2014

Starting with the hypothesis of a possible "propaganda of innovation" as
one of the ideological driving forces of our time, the 2014 edition of
the Accès(s) Festival aims to explore the notions of global
digitalization, technological fetishism, obsolescence, artificial
intelligence - as well as their potential diversions and appropriations
- from a critical angle, via artistic and theoretical propositions. This
edition will take the form of both an exhibition and an event consisting
of concerts, performances, lectures, screenings and workshops.

EDITORIAL  -  DISNOVATION (THE PROPAGANDA OF INNOVATION)
========================================================

Over the past few decades, industrialized societies have experienced an
unprecedented technological boom. The advent of information and
communication technologies, irrigating whole domains of our existence,
has deeply transformed our relationship with the surrounding world. This
global phenomenon has contributed to put technosciences at the core of
our belief systems and the consumption / innovation duality as the
driving force behind our economy.

The notion of innovation is the ultimate contemporary rhetorical tool,
spreading from the technoscientific field into the sectors of politics,
management, eduction and art.

Thus we arrive at the hypothesis of a possible « propaganda of
innovation », as an ideology aiming to solve any need, problem, or
desire through the production of constantly changing artifacts and
concepts, justifying technological obsolescence in the name of
short-term economic vitality.

This simple hypothesis raises many questions:
•   Is the continuous rush towards novelty and the negation of preceding
values a human necessity, an intuitive tendency, an end in itself?
•   Is innovation the expression of a particular ideal whose purposes
are dictated by mere economic and industrial choices?
•   How do artists become tacit agents in the spreading and
popularization of innovations?
•   What kind of critical, subversive, poetic or alternative practices
does this situation generate in return?

Pixel Lab #6 | BENGT SJÖLÉN, "TEMPEST AURA" | Paris, 8 & 9 Nov 2014

Pixel Lab #6 | BENGT SJÖLÉN, "TEMPEST AURA"
-------------------------------------------

in: Laboratoire Ouvert  <at>  la Gaîté lyrique, Paris.
Sat. 8 November, 5PM-7PM: talk/discussion
Sun. 9 November, 2PM-6PM: public workshop

#6 | TEMPEST AURA
-----------------

TEMPEST aura is a device for mapping the electromagnetic emanations of any electronic device. Any
transition of an electric signal between on and off, between current and no current, will also transmit a
burst of electromagnetic energy that can be intercepted by a receiver and in this way all of our
information processing devices also leaks the information they process for anyone to eavesdrop.
TEMPEST aura takes images, much like a scanner, of an electronic device you put on it's surface showing the
aura of information and energy emanating from the device.

http://wiki.ljudmila.org/Artist-in-Residence:_Bengt_Sjolen_%28en%29

Though the talk and the workshop, participants will
. discuss the tempest program, and electric /magnetic fields
. listen to tempest emanations from devices
. produce tempest emanations (e.g. arduino, eliza)
. experiment tempest attacks - eavesdropping old pc keyboards e.g.
. take pictures of tempest phenomena

Participants are invited to bring their computer and any electronic devices they want to scan.

BENGT SJÖLÉN
------------

Bengt Sjölén is an independent software and hardware designer, hacker and artist based in Stockholm and
Berlin, and with roots in the home computer demo scene. He is not part of one single group, but rather
collaborates within multiple networks like Weise7 in Berlin, Teenage Engineering in Stockholm and
aether architecture in Budapest.

Current and continuous experimentation spans programmatic generation of design, function, hardware
and code, electromagnetic investigations, networking technologies, reverse engineering, molecular
life sciences, architecture, visualizations and visuals, sound and self modifying code. 

His work has been exhibited internationally at many museums, festivals and exhibitions including
Synthetic Times Exhibition (Beijing), NTT ICC (Tokyo), Biennale of Architecture (Venice), ISEA (San
Jose, US and Helsinki), Kulturhuset (Stockholm), Pixelache (Helsinki), Ars Electronica (Linz), World
Expo 2010 (Shanghai), Transmediale (Berlin), Ludwig Muzeum (Budapest) and arte.mov (Sao Paulo and Belo
Horizonte, Brazil).
