Labs Show DEAF 2012


Labs Show DEAF 2012

V2_Lab and Baltan Laboratories (Eindhoven) launch a call for proposals from media labs around the world for recently produced artworks to be featured at the next edition of the Dutch Electronic Art Festival taking place from April 19-22, 2012 in Rotterdam.

V2_Lab (Rotterdam, NL) and Baltan Laboratories (Eindhoven, NL) launch a call for proposals from media labs around the world for recently produced artworks (developed by artists in labs in 2011-2012) to be featured at the next edition of the Dutch Electronic Art Festival taking place from April 19-22, 2012 in Rotterdam (NL). The intentions of the show are to provide a unique overview of the diversity and quality of work being developed at the crossroads of art and technology today, to present ‘best practices’ of different labs, and provide input for a conference on new forms of contemporary art production in the form of concrete work and working processes. Through this we aim to stimulate new productions, open up the ‘ways of producing’ of labs and fuel the debate on the socio-cultural functions of artistic research and production facilities.

UNNEEDED CONVERSATIONS – Theory and Practice of Art


The first edition of the international conference “UNNEEDED CONVERSATIONS – Theory and Practice of Art” will be held in May 2010 in the city of Porto, Portugal. Organized by the Faculty of Fine Arts of University of Porto (FBAUP), this conference aims at establishing an intellectual platform to discuss fluidity of contemporary art practice through a series of interdisciplinary interventions. Held in school of arts, UNNEEDED CONVERSATIONS is also meant at being a connection axis between different contexts by interconnecting and mixing different forms and approaches.

The 2010 edition of UNNEEDED CONVERSATIONS will have three main topics for debate — UNTANGLE: The Future Past of Media Art; UNSUSPICIOUS: The Politics of Aesthetics; UNCUT: Time-Based Art — which are at the core of today’s problems of art practice. At the same time, those topics will also be addressed so that they will contribute to the conceptual definition of the recent multimedia/intermedia branch in FBAUP courses.

The conferences will be held in an old cinema of Porto city center (Cinema Passos Manuel), which is only a five minute walk from the Faculty of Fine Arts, and they will be divided into two categories: Talks and Conversations. The first ones — a more conventional format – will take place in the afternoon, and Conversations — a more hybrid format — will take place in the evening.

A simultaneous program will include exhibitions, workshops, screenings or concerts in different places in the city center and at the Faculty of Fine Arts.

After the conference a book will be published – UNNEEDED TEXTS / Vol. one – including both the papers presented and further relevant documentation on the event. A call for papers to be included in this book is now open. Papers will be blind-peer reviewed by a panel of international referees. The book will be fully published in English in print and electronic format. Read more »

'But my mind was too confused to attend to it, so with a kind of madness growing upon me, I flung myself into futurity.'
The Time Machine by H.G. Wells

As 2010 approaches - a year which has been synonymous with past images of the future - it is clear that global society is neither the utopia nor the dystopia traditionally presented in the fictions, architectures and theories of the 20th century. Rather, it is an increasingly complex web of economic, political and cultural systems dependent on the convergence of rapidly evolving technologies that compress what used to be thought of as 'future' into a more coherent and malleable 'present'. As the future catches up to us, as a concept of technological evolution and progress, it seems to be experiencing an identity crisis.

transmediale.10 FUTURITY NOW! invites YOU to ask not what the future has in store for us, but what is it that we have in store for the future?

Dear Spectrites!

The programme for transmediale.10 - FUTURITY NOW! taking place Feb. 02 - 07, 2010 in Berlin is almost complete! Read more »
