CRITICAL STRATEGIES IN ART AND MEDIA | PERSPECTIVES OF NEW CULTURAL PRACTICES
A roundtable conference of digital theorists and practitioners on the future of cultural intelligence and freedoms.
This roundtable will address questions such as "Beyond the obsolete models of artist or author as genius and their fetish objects, what collective and collaborative practices are inventing new terrains and flows?", "As information and communication technologies saturate our world, how is art giving way to new forms of cultural symbolic manipulation?", and "What new kinds of "virtual" spaces are opening up for cultural practice in electronic media? As "old media" begin to collapse under the pressures of the virtual, what new media can we find? "
With: Ted Byfield/Nettime, Steve Kurtz/ Critical Art Ensemble, Amanda McDonald-Crowley/Eyebeam, Claire Pentecost/Continental Drift, Peter Lamborn Wilson/Temporary Autonomous Zone
Moderators: Konrad Becker/World-Information Institute, Jim Fleming /Autonomedia.
A World-Information Institute event in cooperation with Ludwig Boltzmann Institute/Media.Art.Research and the Austrian Cultural Forum New York.
