<nettime-ann> OPEN CALL paraflows 06 EXHIBITION Vienna

CALL FOR ENTRIES - please forward
PARAFLOWS 06  / annual convention for digital arts and cultures 
09.-16.09.2006, Vienna, Austria 
paraflows 06  / EXHIBITION
The exhibition PARAFLOWS 06 invites you to submit contributions. The exhibition deals with current artistic positions within digital media and net cultures. We will present productions which â using new media as a cultural tool â aim for a better understanding of todayâs society, thus also being able to utter criticism in order to redesign society. We are eager to see works highlighting and scrutinising the decisive role of new technologies in the development and the perception of presentday culture. This yearâs exhibition will focus on the idea of a ânet behind the netâ which can mean both the digital behind the social net, and the social behind the digital net. Paraflows (the Greek prefix âparaâ meaning: beside, near, moreover) emanates from the main motors of freedom of the net and its para-experts, the wikipedias and slashdots of all areas within which consumers help each other voluntarily to become and remain critical users and experts in their fields. We are interested in works augmenting our understanding of data protection and privacy, decentralisation, and self-publishing, works that deal with the implications of free âsocial softwareâ (web 2.0, blogs,  wikis, etc.) in realspace, and in works analysing the importance of computer programming as a cultural technique.
