Anomalous Press: Call for Literary Arts

Anomalous Press: Call for Literary Arts:

Anomalous Press, a new multi-format multi-media literary arts journal, welcomes submissions of literary works of texts (poetry, fiction, nonfiction and translation) and especially seeks hybrid, multi- and new media, audio or video literary works, and images. We realize literary is a slippery term, and we most assuredly do not mean the fifth definition as listed on Neither do we think of the term as exclusive — H.G. Wells and Anaïs Nin created great works of literature. If it’s good, it’s good. Period. We want works that challenge us, and challenge you, to move outside our comfort zones, individually and collectively, and socially and anti-socially, and liminally and subliminally, and into spaces new and old and musty and fresh.

East of Borneo: A Collaborative Art Journal and Multimedia Archive

East of Borneo: A Collaborative Art Journal and Multimedia Archive edited by Thomas Lawson:

The launch of East of Borneo marks the convergence of two very distinct lines of thought. What is the nature, and the future, of art magazines? And how might we give form to the sprawling history of art in Los Angeles, a form that can be generative and productive, not merely descriptive or fancifully speculative?

Launched in October 2010, East of Borneo is a collaborative online art journal and multimedia archive that offers a new way to research and present the various histories of contemporary art. Its hybrid form — which publishes newly commissioned art writing within a larger context of user generated material — reflects an editorial process of thinking through the delights and constraints of printed magazines, and fully considering the transcendent possibilities of online publishing today.

Raising Dust: Encounters in Relational Geography [uk London]

[Image: Navroze Contractor, “Street sweeper in Jodhpur,” 2009. Photograph, dimensions variable] Raising Dust: Encounters in Relational Geography :: December 8, 2010 – February 20, 2011 :: Calvert 22, 22 Calvert Avenue, London E2 7JP.

Curated by Richard Appignanesi, writer, theorist and editor Raising Dust is a provocative multimedia exhibition which explores contemporary notions of identity and relativity by inviting a group of predominantly Eastern European artists to respond to the poetry and politics of place.

Arguably, the very idea of Europe is in itself a dislocation, a ‘nomadic horizon’ which responds differently to the shifting perspectives and desires of its inhabitants. Each artist in Raising Dust has contributed work which addresses this proposition and foregrounds the urgency of creating an autonomous ‘space for life’ that overrides dominant mainstream distinctions.

Cinemaniac 2010: The InVisible MAFAF [hr Pula]

MMC LUKA presents Cinemaniac 2010: The InVisible MAFAF — Curated by Branka Bencic :: July 18 – August 6, 2010 :: Gallery Anex and Gallery Luka (MMC LUKA), Istarska 30, 52100 Pula, Croatia.

Cinemaniac – established in 2002 as the support programme at the Pula Film Festival in order to present innovative events in art and cinema, thus creating a new social space to introduce recent achievements in the fields of experimental video and filmmaking, and multimedia installations. Within such practices, contemporary art reveals itself as both a kind of parallel history and a signpost to possible futures for avantgarde and experimental filmmaking – as well as a space where the depths of possibility are plumbed, borders argued, and the language of film image – and, crucially, new cinema forms – investigated.

NJP Reader: Contributions to an Artistic Anthropology

NJP Reader #1: Contributions to an Artistic Anthropology:

The Nam June Paik Center is dedicated to the artistic and intellectual legacy of Nam June Paik, the renowned Korean-born artist who transformed visual art worldwide. In addition to its function as an exhibition space, the Nam June Paik Art Center developed a new publication, NJP Reader. The aim of the NJP Reader is to recontextualize Nam June Paik’s artistic thought and his ‘random access’ strategies in a topical discursive practice. Leading questions are: What is the meaning of Nam June Paik’s multi-medial experiments, performances, and sculpture for our current artistic practice and discourse? What new dimensions for re-imagining notions of technology, ubiquity, and human experience do Nam June Paik’s thinking and practice suggest? How does his practice potentiate paradigm shifts in broader understandings of the potentialities and characteristics of alternative processes of participation afforded by the introduction of media technology into artistic practice?

Exploring Produsage

A Special Issue of New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia: Exploring Produsage :: Call for Papers — Deadline: July 16, 2010.

The concept of produsage points to the shift away from conventional producer/consumer relationships, and highlights the more fluid roles of users and contributors within social media environments. Participants in open source projects, in Wikipedia, in YouTube and Second Life are no longer merely consuming or using preproduced material, but neither are they at all times acting as fully self-determined producers of fully formed new works; rather, they occupy a hybrid position as produsers of content.

Produsage processes are now evident across a wide range of activities — mainly online, but increasingly also extending to the offline world — from citizen journalism and communal knowledge management through to collaborative artistic activities, from learner-led education models to citizen engagement in political processes.

RIAM 2010 – Low-Tech [fr Marseilles]

7th International Multimedia Art Meetings: RIAM 2010 – Low-Tech :: February 25 – March 6, 2010 :: Marseilles, France.

Nowadays, artistic events devoted to connections between art and technology are facing a paradox: how to stand back from technological glorifications, in a consumerist world constantly saturated by new gadgets? RIAM (International Multimedia Art Meetings) have always focused on analyzing and criticizing the technology’s role and the artists way of appropriate and embezzled it. Even if technology have transformed our everyday life in a distinct way, RIAM’s programming has never been blindly rushed into enthusiasm for new technological feats. It seems evident to us that media and technical evolution have radically transformed our way of organizing, interpreting and understanding the world. Continue reading
