Scroll to prev post Scroll to next post Commission: “Global Direct” by Paolo Cirio Commission: Global Direct by Paolo Cirio: Promoting global, participatory democracy Global Direct is a political philosophy driven by information technology and the failure of current political systems to respond to the complexities, crises, and speed of contemporary life. Inspired by the tradition of utopian artistic visions, and informed by extensive research, Cirio’s fifteen organograms illustrate alternative protocols, procedures and policies for actualizing a global democratic system. On the website you will also find an invitation to “Suggest a Slogan,” video statements by prominent advocates of participatory politics, and more. The slogans and printed posters of the Global Direct campaign will be disseminated through social networks and in physical public spaces. Global Direct showcases how distributed networking technologies can be used for participatory decision-making, transparent accountability, and civil awareness. Continue reading

Live Stage: Radius 25 [online]

Radius 25: Cultural Morphing by Klaus Filip / Nicolaj Kirisits / et al. :: May 20-21, 2012; 8:00 am CST (to coincide with the 2012 Chicago NATO Summit).

Cultural Morphing is an experiment in creating a multi-perspective image of reality from the simultaneous experience of a geographic line by the individual expression of a perceived personal reality. Twelve invited artists traveled by train from Vienna to Shanghai, and selected stops along the route served as their workspace where they would meticulously work out an project that outlined various aspects of cultural transition experienced on the journey. Stopovers at Ulan-Ude, Ulan Bator, Beijing and Shanghai were used to exhibit the works that were created en route. Continue reading

Jennifer and Kevin Mccoy: Index [us Troy, NY]

Jennifer and Kevin Mccoy: Index :: until October 13, 2012 :: EMPAC, 110 8th Street, Troy, New York.

Index is an EMPAC-commissioned public art installation by Rensselaer Arts alumni Jennifer and Kevin McCoy, which consists of multiple sculptures filmed via small, live cameras. The resulting video projection, as well as the models, will appear throughout our public spaces during an extended residency with the artists.

Inspired by a J.G. Ballard short story called The Index, in which an alphabetized list of people and places are turned into an implied, overarching narrative, the McCoys’ list spans the 1960s to today, referencing globalization, technology, mass migrations, and war. Continue reading

The Oil Show [de Dortmund]

The Oil Show :: November 12, 2011 – February 19, 2012 :: Hartware MedienKunstVerein (HMKV) at Dortmunder U (3rd floor), Leonie-Reygers-Terrasse, 44137 Dortmund, Germany.

We have reached Peak Oil – the maximum capacity of global crude oil extraction and production. After Peak Oil, the total global oil production cannot be increased. In the future, demand will always exceed supply. The global struggle for resources will intensify. Despite this our dependency on oil is growing further. We cannot, or do not seem to want to do without oil. We are seriously dependent.

The works in the exhibition deal with our dependency on oil and the economic, political, and social entanglements and consequences of this growing dependency. Continue reading

Social Text: Call for Visual Works

Social Text: Call for Visual Works — Deadline: October 15, 2011.

Debt is arguably the central economic and political issue of our times. Since the recession triggered by the crisis subprime mortgage crisis in 2008, political economists have spent much time bringing to light the arcane financial instruments (e.g. Collateralized Debt Obligations) that have driven the crisis. Yet relatively little attention has been paid to the questions which debt and credit raise for culture and everyday life. To address these key issues of our time, Social Text is publishing a dossier of essays on debt that builds on recent work by Michael Denning and the Yale Working Group on Globalization and Culture.

“The Commons” by Linda Carroli

The Commons by Linda Carroli:

Taking cues from the examples and critics cited here, the idea of the commons has emerged as a networked space of creative and generative possibility and risk. To recover is to reclaim. In shaping the commons, Jay Walljasper states that we “recognise some forms of wealth belong to all of us, and that these community resources must be actively protected and managed for the good of all. The commons are the things that we inherit and create jointly, and that will (hopefully) last for generations to come. The commons consists of gifts of nature such as air, oceans and wildlife as well as shared social creations such as libraries, public spaces, scientific research and creative works.” However, there’s never just one commons – the commons itself is multiple and complex, in process and becoming. Artists actively keep the commons alive in the face of all kinds of opposition, censorship and antagonism. Continue reading
