The Archive of Digital Art expands its field and includes scholars in its documentation. Scholars are invited to become members of the online community and set up their own ADA entry!
Scholars have the possibility to upload publications and text pdfs, announce upcoming events, post comments, document exhibitions, conferences and other relevant events and be represented in the Archive.
The community features also allow the active exchange of professional information with peers and the new “Light box” tool facilitates the examination and comparison of images for research and teaching.
To ensure a high academic standard 5 published articles and/or curated exhibitions are requisite for scholars to become members of the ADA community. Interested scholars may apply for an account here.

MUSEUM and ARCHIVE on the MOVE
Changing Cultural Institutions in the Digital Era
edited by: Oliver GRAU / Wendy COONES / Viola RÜHSE
English, DeGruyter, Munich September 2017, 324 pp.
With contributions by:
Jorge Wagensberg, Viola E. V. Rühse, Dieter Bogner, Erkki Huhtamo, Ryszard W. Kluszczyński, Oliver Grau, Youngjin Lee, Okwui Enwezor, Wendy Coones, Sean Cubitt, Christiane Paul, Morten Søndergaard, Sarah Kenderdine / Jeffrey Shaw, Andreas Broeckmann, Harald Kraemer, Lev Manovich, Lutz Engelke / Anja Osswald
The digital revolution fundamentally changed how cultural heritage is created, documented, analyzed, and preserved. The book focuses on this transformation’s impact. How must museums and archives meet the challenges of digitally generated cultures and how does the digital revolution influence traditional object collection, research, and education? How do digital technologies and digital art and culture affect our interaction with images?

Fred Forest 09.09.2017 goo.gl/pjTj2J
Madam, Sir, out of respect for your duty to public to promote diverse forms of artistic expressions and in the name of fairness to artists, we ask you to please extend the duration of Fred Forest's exhibition, which has been cut in half.
Addressees: Ms. Julie NARBEY, Director General of the Centre Pompidou, and Mr. Bernard Blistène, Director of the MNAM (National Museum of Modern Art), which like all public institutions in the field of the arts has a pedagogical mission to bear witness to the diverse range of artistic forms of expressions in our time in a manner that benefits the knowledge and awareness of the general public. You, who lay claim to a position on the cutting edge of society and not just culture.
In this spirit of these objectives (I suppose), you have organized a very beautiful retrospective of the phenomenal and protean work of Fred FOREST, an artist largely unknown to the general public who is nonetheless a major figure of the socio-critical and political art of the latter part of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st―one of the founders of Sociological Art and the Aesthetics of Communication International Group; a pioneer of interventions in the press, video art, and Net Art; and a leading new media theorist.
For this reason, it is shocking to see the exhibition held in the basement, during the summer months (the period of lowest attendance), for only a month and a half (the usual duration of your major exhibitions being three months on average), with partial funding by the artist himself (the usual case being 100% financing using funds allocated to the institution), with a flimsy promotional campaign (I am only reporting the facts). This resembles a form of vindictiveness towards this artist, who often denounced the perverse effects of the industrialization of Art and staked out territories of free expression.
For this reason, and since it is not possible at present to extend the duration of the Fred FOREST retrospective due to programming constraints, we ask you to be kind enough to consider its "relocation" to the 6th floor―a noble place reserved for artists of international notoriety―within a reasonable timeframe, as well as its completion with the addition of works by the artist from the period from 1985 to 2010, which were absent due to a lack of space in the original venue! We ask you to consider our request so that more people will be able to see the artist’s retrospective and thus pay a worthy tribute to a French artist who has left his mark on the history of Art. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10154778120417882&set=gm.1205771276196276&type=3

Denilson LOpes 07.09.2017 Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I am pleased to announce, for those who can read in Portuguese, the release of my new book, Afetos, Relações e Encontros com Filmes Brasileiros Contemporâneos (Hucitec).
Information in English at Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/164184137490639/?context=create&previousaction=create&ref=5&page_id_source=1626648430732826&sid_create=2121085216&action_history=[%7B%22surface%22%3A%22create_dialog%22%2C%22mechanism%22%3A%22page_create_dialog%22%2C%22extra_data%22%3A%7D]&has_source=1
For those who do not read in Portuguese, there is a previous version of one of the essays available in English, “Alumbramento, Friendship, and Failure New Filmmaking in Brazil in the Twenty‐First Century” (https://www.academia.edu/31929764/Alumbramento_Friendship_and_Failure_New_Filmmaking_in_Brazil_in_the_Twenty_First_Century), and an article in Spanish, “La História como fiesta y encuentro” (https://www.academia.edu/29961428/LA_HISTORIA_COMO_FIESTA_Y_ENCUENTRO).
It is my response, or reaction, to what I have seen and to what has interested me in this new generation of Brazilian filmmakers who have appeared in the past few years. They were strange encounters with scenes and films, affects without borders, and attempts, perhaps, at other ways of living in these hard times. If you would like to know more there is information below. Please feel free to resend the information to all who may be interested.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Afetos, Relações e Encontros com Filmes Brasileiros Contemporâneos, by Denilson Lopes, seeks to fill a gap in the bibliography of studies on Brazilian cinema during the past ten years, after the so-called “Cinema da Retomada” (“New Brazilian Cinema”), which was concerned with reconciling quality and commercial reach in the search for a public that was in decline at the end of the 1980s and all but lost in the period of Fernando Collor’s presidency. In the new moment, from the mid-2000s and onwards, a large part of the most daring production turned to a format that was independent from the large producers and their models.
Seeking to understand this change, the focus of the book, in its 10 essays, is the work of young directors who arrived between 2009 and 2016 at their first feature films, such as Eryk Rocha, Julia Murat, Clarissa Campolina, Leonardo Mouramateus, André Antonio, Uirá dos Reis, Guto Parente, Luiz and Ricardo Pretti, Pedro Diógenes, Marcelo Caetano, Petra Costa, and Gustavo Vinagre, among others. Their emergence coincides with the proliferation of the digital, of collaborative and collective processes, as well as the consolidation of the Tiradentes Film Festival as the main showcase for this generation. The book proposes a critical reading that is at the same time a wager and a reflection on what it means to be a young artist these days, pressured by the cultural industry and by the increase in the cost of living, who seeks through art other forms of creating and living together. For this purpose, the films are read through the lens of contemporary studies on affects, which constitute a theoretically diverse area that is well developed in the English-speaking world but little explored in Brazil, especially here, with respect to suggestions coming from Deleuze & Guattari, from queer studies, and from performance studies, among others. The present selection of essays was written in a way that could interest not only students, professors, and researchers of cinema, but also a wider audience interested in the debates on aesthetics, art, and culture.
This book is number 16 from the “Coleção Pensamento Político-Social” (“Social-Political Thought Collection”) that is directed by Elide Rugai Bastos, André Botelho, and Gabriela Nunes Ferreira.
