springerin Issue 4 | Fall 2009: Turn Return

springerin Issue 4 – Fall 2009: Turn Return: Various »turns« have long been discussed in the world of culture. Many fields ring with optimistic announcements of new paradigms and modes of observation, whether we think of »cultural«, »translational«, »participatory« or »educational« turns. It is often not clear here whether the proclaimed innovations actually are conceptual or indeed systemic turns as well, or whether areas that have been neglected or insufficiently explored to date are now simply being dragged into the limelight. Whilst realpolitik discourse taking a retrospective look at the turning point in 1989 can draw on an absolutely endless reservoir of resources, proclamations of various different cultural turns are often little more than a rhetorical ploy.

Het Proces [nl Amsterdam]

Het Proces :: Exhibition until November 15, 2009 (see lectures below) :: Arti et Amicitiae, Rokin 112, Amsterdam.

Het Proces is devoted to “generative art”, as exemplified by the work of Peter Struycken, Remko Scha, Driessens & Verstappen and Jochem van der Spek. Artists who embrace this approach, design physical or computational processes which generate images and objects in a largely autonomous way. Generative art has an intrinsically conceptual component; it tends to involve theory and to invite explicit reflection. The exhibition is therefore accompanied by a series of presentations which broach some relevant topics for discussion. Continue reading

Norman White: We Fix Toasters [de Bremen]

Norman White: We Fix Toasters :: until November 8, 2009 :: Weserburg | Museum für moderne Kunst, Teerhof 20, 28199 Bremen, Germany.

Norman White is one of the pioneers of electronic and interactive art. The retrospective shows his humorous machines – machines, seeming to have a life of their own and confronting the viewer in an often unexpected and surprising way. His most well known art work is the Helpless Robot, that initially kindly asks the viewer for help and then turns out to be of a dictatorial character.

Since the middle of the 1960s the Canadian Norman White (*1938) develops electronic, since 1976 also digital, machines, which are programmed in such a way that unforeseen forms and reactions are supposed to evolve. Continue reading

Reblogged Urgent Aphorisms … Lovink + Rossiter

Urgent Aphorisms: Notes on Organized Networks for the Connected Multitudes by Geert Lovink and Ned Rossiter (The OrgMen) [posted on Net Critique] [Forthcoming in Mark Deuze (ed.) Managing Media Work, Sage, 2010]

Four Stages of Web 2.0 Culture: Use. Modify. Distribute. Ignore. – Johan Sjerpstra

In between the blog posting and the tweet there is the aphorism, a centuries old literary form that should do well amongst creative media workers. Zipped knowledge of the 21st century.

Already for 18th century German experimental physicist and man of letters, Georg Christoph Lichtenberg, there was an impossibility for knowledge to capture the totality of things. ‘It is a question in arts and sciences whether a best is possible beyond which our understanding cannot go’ (Lichtenberg). The answer to Twittermania is not the thousand page magnum opus. Today, in a techno-culture where the link never ends, there is a need to give pause to thought. Continue reading

“Tesserae of Venus” by Christina McPhee [us San Francisco]

Tesserae of Venus by Christina McPhee :: October 23 – December 5, 2009 :: Opening Reception: October 23; 7:00 – 10:00 pm :: Silverman Gallery, 804 Sutter Street, San Francisco, CA.

Tesserae of Venus imagines a strange future through dynamic photomontages of energy-producing landscapes and related drawings.

McPhee borrows from the tectonics of Venus-tesserae, or ‘complex ridged folds,’ in order to structure her images of imagined future sites and present a spatial and political critique of our toxic, increasingly-carbon saturated environment. Continue reading

Doug Aitken: Frontier [it Rome]

Third edition of Enel ContemporaneaDoug Aitken: Frontier (curated by Francesco Bonami) :: October 23 – November 23, 2009 :: Tiber Island, Rome (after @ MACRO museum of Rome (Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Roma).

Frontier is an open-air video installation in which the artist uses an amazing crescendo of sounds and images to depict a visionary journey in the modern world, blurring the line between fiction and reality. It is a narrative work that takes place over the course of a day, featuring the famous American painter Ed Ruscha. Its images emanate from a series of multiple screens set within a minimal, white, architectural structure with no roof, punctuated by numerous small windows that emit a glow of energy towards the exterior. A sort of modern “micro-Coliseum” with a powerful emotional and multi-sensory impact, showing a video shot in Rome, Los Angeles, Israel and South Africa – a story of everywhere and, at the same time, of nowhere.
