ADA welcomes Scholars!

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.

Vendredi dernier, la Communauté Urbaine de Dunkerque a lancé un appel d'offre concernant la réalisation d'une oeuvre commémorant l'opération Dynamo, à proximité directe du Bastion 32, le Musée Dunkerque 1940. Cette possibilité d'intervention artistique dans la ville est rare. C'est une occasion que l'on ne peut pas laisser perdre. D'autant plus que son sujet, ce qu'il s'est passé sur notre littoral il y a 76 ans, est un des événements majeurs de la seconde guerre mondiale. Il serait déplorable de découvrir en juillet 2017 une oeuvre abstraite, ou une triste stèle, dénuée de tout sens, sans aucun lien avec ce passé qui fut si douloureux à Dunkerque. Christopher Nolan s'est emparé de ce sujet tout récemment et nous espérons tous qu'il ne trahira pas la vérité historique (on lui fait confiance vu la qualité de ses précédentes productions). Cependant nous vivons dans une époque où un film hollywoodien imprime davantage les mémoires qu'un cours d'Histoire… C'est pourquoi, afin de ne pas nous laisser déposséder de cette Histoire qui est la nôtre, j'invite tous les dunkerquois à réfléchir et à concevoir cette oeuvre qui se veut être un nouveau marqueur dans la ville, " une part de l'identité à venir de l'agglomération dunkerquoise". Qu'elle puisse, à l'instar de "Réfléchir", le blockhaus-miroir, permettre de réactiver la mémoire collective, remettre en lumière ce passé afin qu'il éclaire notre présent. Ce conflit fut un apocalypse sur le territoire : une ville détruite à 90%, des dizaines de milliers de réfugiés ( nos parents, grands parents ) et la misère partout. Le constat est triste à établir : 71 ans plus tard , il y a encore des dizaines de personnes qui dorment dans nos rues et plus de 1000 réfugiés au camp de la linière à Grande-Synthe. A travers cette oeuvre, nous pourrons exercer ce devoir de mémoire, mais aussi CHANGER concrètement les choses sur le terrain en consacrant l'intégralité de la somme allouée par la CUD pour la réalisation de cette oeuvre (175 000 euros moins les coûts de réalisation) à 3 associations: La première qui vient en aide aux Sdfs de Dunkerque, une autre qui travaille auprès des réfugiés au camp de la linière, et la troisième, une association de solidarité internationale, qui oeuvre dans l'un des pays les plus pauvres du monde, le Burkina Faso. Cette oeuvre, reflet du passé mais inscrite résolument dans le présent, construite par les dunkerquois contribuera aussi à donner à la ville de Dunkerque une nouvelle image au niveau national, et international, celle d'un territoire qui, fort d'un passé aussi lourd soit-il, se relève et véhicule ces notions essentielles que sont la solidarité et la fraternité sans qui tout espoir pour l'avenir est vain. Je vous invite à y contribuer, à reprendre en main cette Histoire et cette ville qui sont les votres en partageant vos idées , en apportant votre pierre à l'édifice. Les délais imposés par l'appel d'offre, pour une raison qui m'est inconnue, sont extrêmement courts, le 13 décembre prochain, la CUD sélectionnera 3 porteurs de projets. Les artistes sélectionnés auront à peine 2 mois pour développer leur projet et celui qui sera retenu sera annoncé en février. Un groupe Facebook est dédié à ce projet: DYNAMO DK . Vous pouvez également envoyer vos idées par mail à cette adresse: anonymeuntitled@gmail.com J'espère y découvrir vos idées et ce le plus rapidement possible, les meilleures pistes seront proposées à la CUD et nous nous retrouverons pour en débattre et affiner notre proposition. A nous de jouer! Anonyme 30 novembre 2016

Flash Back: En 1954, aucune cinémathèque ni ciné-club en Israël. Je trouve 20 films sur l'art dans les ambassades et décide de lancer le Ciné-Club d'Israël avec un Festival présenté en 5 soirées à Tel Aviv, Jérusalem et Haifa. Le début d'une démarche audiovisuelle qui dure encore. Retrouvé une carte de membre. In 1954, there were no cinematheque nor cine-club in Israel. I found 20 films on art in embassies and decided to launch the Israel Cine Club with a festival of 5 evenings presented in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa. The beginning of an audiovisual approach which is still lasting. Found a membership card.

V!RUS JOURNAL #13 RELEASED! http://www.nomads.usp.br/virus/virus13 On behalf of the V!RUS journal Editorial Committee we kindly ask for your help to release to your students and professors the 13th issue of the V!RUS academic journal, on the theme "Good news for hard times", available at: www.nomads.usp.br/virus/virus13. V!RUS 13 gathers papers that have in common the interest for spaces of resistance existing within social life. They show the desire to contribute to the development of practices aiming to preserve critical thinking and support for the most vulnerable classes and groups of the population. They argue above all that solutions to the problems of a nation can only be correctly formulated within an environment of freedom of thought, expression, creation and experimentation. V!RUS journal is a biligual English-Portuguese twice-a-year journal published by Nomads.usp, the Center for Interactive Living Studies, of the Institute of Architecture and Urbanism - IAU-USP, at the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. V!RUS is accessed from more than 400 cities in 60 countries. A call for contributions to the next V!RUS' issue, on the subject "Weaving the city", is also available at: http://www.nomads.usp.br/virus/virus13/?sec=11&item=1&lang=en Papers can be submitted in ENGLISH, SPANISH OR PORTUGUESE.

CFP: Langarts workshops series on installations art 2017: Deadline extended to Dec. 18, 2017: The workshop series will address the aesthetic experience generated by installations conceived as a spatial apparatus, designed by a producer, linking a moving observer and a prescriptive environment. They will aim to highlight the phenomenological, kinaesthetic, cognitive and dialogical mechanisms governing these experiences, in a variety of artistic fields (visual arts, music, literature, cinema), in Asia and the West. The goal is to unravel: - The symbolic representations of the self induced by the installation space,and through it those triggered by the place we inhabit, we dwell in, that we build through our journeys and contacts with people and things (social space, emotional, memorial space, territory, natural space, even the "anthropocene" (the natural space put to the service of man). - The challenges and issues involved and addressed in the building of such aesthetic devices (subjective, symbolic, spiritual, political, gender issues), as well as to assess their potential transformative power. The convocation of a variety of artistic formats should interrogate the bridges between fantasy/memory and experience.

En 9 ans nous avons eu des sections dans 40 villes. Je ne retrouve qu'une partie de l'article. 60 years ago, in 1956, I founded the Canadian Museum of Film on Art with the purpose to make it an audiovisual virtual museum.

Current debates are informed by the growing institutionalisation of art and its modes of inquiry since the amalgamation of independent art schools into multi-disciplinary universities as it happened in the UK since the early 1990s or the change of status of art academies into Universities with research degree awarding powers. These developments were interconnected with the establishment of practice based research and the implementation of respective PhD programmes. ‘Art as research ‘ got institutionally underpinned through the establishment of research infrastructures for the creative and performing arts including career trajectories and funding streams. On the other hand, government foci on the ‘knowledge society’, the creative industries and the digital economy have put the arts under pressure to legitimsie their role in society including their ‘utility’ and impact. As part of the ‘business’ of education, science and research, art as research is increasingly subject to evaluation, measuring, transparency and accountability. The presentation aims to explore some of the current conditions for art as research. What dose the application of established research paradigms and practices of inquiry mean for the ‘discipline’ of arts based research, its potential to ‘make knowledge’ and to contribute to the understanding of the world, of ourselves and each other? What are the potential of and challenges for art as research within an increasingly heterogeneous science and research landscape, and particularly with regard to established and emergent inter-, trans-, multi- and post-disciplinary approaches? How does the quest for the ‘autonomy’ of an arts based inquiry relate to the heteronomy of research agendas? How do current debates impact on the ‘order of knowledge’, normative powers and the dynamic relationship between the arts, the sciences and society?
