Invitation to see and hear:

1) The award-winning net art work
/ source / (postfactual), 2017

Synopsis: In Timo Kahlen’s new interactive net art work / source / (postfactual) , 2017 - just awarded an Honorary Mention at the Junge Akademie’s and ZKM’s prize question “What’s the Net Listening To ?” (Was hört das Netz ?) - the viewer is invited to search for reliable sources, for valid ‘facts’ , nodes and information on the internet.

A seemingly void, monochrome white surface is all it shows; and frustrates the viewer with a mouse cursor, which is difficult to locate, to control and direct, as isolated potential ‘facts’ pop up in interaction with the cursor : appearing but distorted, head-over and uncomfortably remote, as if projected onto the reverse side of the computer screen. Accumulating alternative facts are accompanied by outbursts of sound and bustle, only to be quenched and extinguished shortly afterwards.


- an avatar manifesto - by Kara Gut

15/04/2017 - 15/05/2017

Wayshrines I, II, & III (an avatar manifesto) is a combination of appropriated media, screen recordings, and performance in digital environments in which the avatar exists as a replacement for the physical being. Wayshrines attempts to overturn power structures that exist within a web-based reality by appropriating and reinterpreting virtual representations. The work calls into question the alternative moral code that exists when confronting the immortal digital body.


Dot.Art is is an exhibition and events programme presenting artworks from the first wave of Net.Art alongside more recent projects produced since the rise of web 2.0, social networks and easily accessible search engines. Taking place in Vivid Projects’ physical space as well as occupying hyperlinks on its website, the Dot.Art season explores the internet as a medium and site for art from the 1990s through to the present day and includes an events series incorporating a reading group, talks, performances, screenings and workshops. These events will predominantly be announced via Vivid Projects and Office for Art, Design and Technology’s social media platforms.

In addition to the events programme, a unique, accredited Arts Award qualification for 11 – 15 year olds has been generously supported by Arts Connect. This programme consists of 4 sessions covering research skills, practical technological and artistic workshops and a small display of the works produced by participants.

Artists exhibiting in the Dot.Art season include: Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries, Heath Bunting, MTAA, Rafaël Rozendaal, Critical Art Ensemble and others to be announced.

Chronus Art Center, Rhizome, and TASML are pleased to announce the second edition of the Prix Net Art, a $10,000 prize for net art. The prize will recognize the future promise of an artist making outstanding work on the internet, as demonstrated by past achievement. A second distinction prize of $5,000 will also be awarded. Awards are made on a no-strings-attached basis, acknowledging excellent artists who remain committed to working online. Nominations are now open, and guidelines available at THE CALL FOR NOMINATIONS. Nominations will be reviewed by a jury of three international judges: Josephine Bosma, Chrissie Iles, and Domenico Quaranta.

Open call

When Inside the White Cube first appeared in Artforum in 1976, its impact was immediate. Without a doubt, O'Doherty was the first to explicitly confront a particular crisis in postwar art as he sought to examine the assumptions on which the modern commercial and museum gallery was based.

Concerned with the complex and sophisticated relationship between economics, social context, and aesthetics as represented in the contested space of the art gallery, he raises the question of how artists must construe their work in relation to the gallery space and system.

But, what happens nowadays when this relationship takes place between the post-modern commercial and museum gallery and Digital Art?

Despite the fact that both Digital Art and have the ability to dissolve this dependence, does it seem that it still survives as a decisive factor in their future development, and social reception?

Furthermore, what can Digital Art & do inside the White Cube?

Taking this into account, Inside the | An Exhibition Online Gallery seeks for digital works that deal with a wide range of issues in connection with this theme by taking the Virtual Whit3 Cube as an essential part of the submitted piece.


=== Next MEDIA ART HISTORIES Conference 2015 in MONTREAL ! ===

We are pleased to officially announce that the next MEDIA ART HISTORIES
Conference will be held in MONTREAL, November 2015.

"RE-CREATE: Theories, Methods and Practices of Research and Creation in the Histories of Media Arts and Sciences" will address the central question of what theories, methodologies and techniques can be used tounderstand past, present and indeed, future paradigms of creative material practice involving technologies within research contexts from ahistorical and critical point of view. This is a timely question for theMAH conferences as the issue of how material based practices withintechnical culture create new knowledge has been explicit and central tothe historical roots of media art, design, science and technology.

After Riga 2013 this fall, Liverpool 2011, Melbourne 2009, Berlin 2007 and Banff 2005, the Media Art Histories board is pleased to grant the 10th Anniversary conference to Montreal. RE-CREATE will be hosted by the Hexagram Centre for Research-Creation in Media Art and Technology at Concordia University and the UQAM (Université du Québec à Montréal) incollaboration with McGill University (Department of Art History and Communication Studies; Media@McGill; * CIRMMT-Center forInterdisciplinary Research in Music and Media Technology).

WRO 2015: Test Exposure
The aim of the WRO 2015 Biennale is to give exposure to new media art experiments, individual explorations and approaches investigating the potential of art both to affect and to reflect emerging issues in culture.

Artists are invited to submit works that take on the risks of innovation, inquiry and imagination, using original observations, contemporary technologies and procedures in the process of creating inventive forms, interpreting the present and revising the notion of the future (which no longer seems to be a clearly defined project).
