Discussion on Art and Engagement=20
Sunday March 23 , 14.00 at SMART Project Space (dutch spoken)

 'Art and engagement' is lately a much discussed subject. We seem to be 
concerned with evaluating the ideals introduced by contemporary practice 
in 1990's. Doubts arise as to whether art has succeeded in appropriating 
its much desired position within society. Is what we refer to as 
'engaged' art really so engaged, or has art's desire to collaborate with 
society resulted in an uncritical absorption by social structures ? 
Related to this is the increasing populism within culture politics and 
subsidy system that produces an official kind of engaged art. Recently a 
new call for autonomy, a previously discredited concept in art 
criticism, can be heard again. This seems to address the question that 
art perhaps gains its critical possibilities after all from its own 
unique position with the implication of distance from society. Important 
questions discussed: Can art be engaged, and should it be? Can we speak 
of a turning point which could be defined around the term 'engaged 
autonomy'? What are the possibilities, forms and contexts available 
within contemporary society in order that art is engaged?

 The discussion will take place in the form of 3 dialogues, following 
the example of political debates, to bring the fire within art 
discussions.

 Guests: Arie Altena (editor of Metropolis M), Lex ter Braak (director 
Fonds voor Beeldende Kunsten, Vormgeving en Bouwkunst) Ann Demeester 
(curator and  director W139), Jeanne van Heeswijk (artist), Bart 
Verschaffel (affiliates with the University of Gent and editor of the 
Witte Raaf) Sanne van Rijn ( theatre director). Moderator : Tiers Bakker

Debat over Kunst en Engagement=20

Zondag 23 Maart, 14.00 uur in SMART Project Space

 'Kunst en engagement' is een onderwerp dat de laatste tijd in het 
centrum van het kunstdebat staat. Op dit moment lijkt het of er een 
evaluatie plaats vindt over waartoe de idealen van de kunst van de jaren 
90 hebben geleid. De resultaten van de maatschappelijk positie die de 
kunst voor zichzelf wilde terug vorderen lijken op een teleurstelling te 
zijn uitgedraaid. Is de kunst wel zo ge=EBngageerd of heeft haar 
samenwerking met de samenleving voornamelijk geresulteerd in een 
onkritische opname door de samenleving. Populistische cultuurpolitiek en 
een subsidiestelsel die een offici=EBle kunst van engagement produceert, 
hangen hier nauw mee samen.  Langzamerhand zien we de vraag naar 
autonomie, een lange tijd uit de mode geraakt begrip in de kunstkritiek, 
steeds vaker opduiken. De twijfel rijst of de kunst misschien toch niet 
juist haar kritische vermogen ontleent aan haar unieke positie als 
vrijplaats, en de mate van afstand die dit impliceert tot de 
maatschappij. Belangrijke vragen zijn "Kan kunst ge=EBngageerd zijn, en 
is dit wenselijk? Kan er gesproken worden van een kentering waarvoor we 
een begrip als ge=EBngageerde autonomie kunnen introduceren? Welke 
mogelijkheden, vormen en contexten staan de kunst ter beschikking in de 
hedendaagse samenleving om ge=EBngageerd te zijn?

 Het debat neemt de vorm aan van 3 twee gesprekken, gemodelleerd naar 
het politieke debat, om het vuur terug in de kunst discussie te brengen.

 Gasten: Arie Altena (eindredacteur Metropolis M) Lex ter Braak 
(directeur van het Fonds voor Beeldende Kunsten, Vormgeving, en 
Bouwkunst), Ann Demeester (artistiek leider van W139), Jeanne van 
Heeswijk (kunstenares), Sanne van Rijn (theatermaker bij Zuidelijk 
Toneel? Hollandia), Bart Verschaffel (redacteur van de Witte Raaf, 
filosoof, docent aan de universiteit van Gent). Moderator: Tiers Bakker 
(verbonden aan HTV de IJsberg en de Groene Amsterdammer). =20

Culture Machine 6: Deconstruction is/in Cultural Studies

February, 2004

Editors for this issue: Gary Hall, Dave Boothroyd and Joanna Zylinska

Cultural studies has often described deconstruction in rather pejorative
terms.
Deconstruction has been criticized for being too textual and
theoretical, too
concerned with meaning and language, and therefore more suited to the
concerns of
literature and philosophy than to cultural studies and its desire to get
down and
dirty with the real world of concrete political materiality. As a
result,
deconstruction has been somewhat marginalized by the move away from
'theory' and
'back to reality' and the economic that took place within cultural
studies over the
course of the 1990s. However, recent years have seen the gradual
emergence of a
newer generation of  cultural studies writers and practitioners many of
whom, while
clearly locating themselves in the tradition of Hoggart, Williams and
Hall,
nevertheless regard deconstruction and deconstructive modes of thinking
as extremely
important to their work.

For this issue of Culture Machine we are inviting contributions on any
aspect of the
relation between cultural studies and deconstruction, as well as between
'old' and
'new' cultural studies.

Indicative questions to be addressed include:

Why should cultural studies be interested in deconstruction? Can
deconstruction help
to think through some of the problems in contemporary cultural studies:
the relation
between culture and society, the cultural and the economic, cultural
studies and
political economy, Marxism and post-Marxism, theory and politics, agency
and
structure, textuality and lived experience, the subject and the social?

What are the consequences for cultural studies, and for our
understanding of
culture, of recent 'deconstructive' work on politics, ethics, justice,
responsibility, performativity, the  institution of the university,
teletechnologies, spectrality, the 'New International', hospitality, the
foreigner,
the parasite, cosmopolitanism, forgiveness, secrecy, friendship,
experimenting, the
future?

Why should deconstruction be interested in cultural studies? Is the
latter as
interesting as, say, literature or philosophy? Is cultural studies
capable of
providing anything that other modes of enquiry cannot achieve more
easily/interestingly/rigorously?

Can deconstruction be 'applied' to cultural studies? Is cultural studies
already in
deconstruction? Can there be a 'deconstructive cultural studies'? Is a
certain
pervertibility and experience of mobility, transition, translation,
transformation
and change not what makes cultural studies at once both possible and
impossible?

As always, contributions which take advantage of and explore the effects
of
electronic media technologies in their form, as well as content, are
welcomed.

Deadline for submissions: October 2003.

Suspended Gardens 2, an interactive project by Alex Dragulescu, is a
metaphor that references history, borrows meanings from contemporary
culture, and offers a political commentary in a subtle, playful way. It is a
hybrid between an interactive Flash game, a messageboard and a simulation
system rendered relevant by the current conflict in Iraq.

Today's digital war makes the explosion of a “precision-guided missile”
appear like a mere bleep on a screen.  Death is distant and often invisible.
The audience is desensitized and apathetic. Virtual flowers planted in
cyberspace will attempt to establish a symbolical link to a reality that is
distant, remediated and reduced by the digital stream. How ironic that  the
technological platform that makes this project possible is an offspring of
military research.

Suspended Gardens users can chose from three types of flowers whose growth
is influenced daily by various factors (climate, population, oil, war, other
plants).  The flowers also carry a user-assigned text message that can be
easily read by the whole community. Additionally users are able to see in
real time how the garden evolves.

IMMEDIATE RELEASE

University of Colorado Digital Art Students Launch 2.1 version of
"Histories of Internet Art" Website
Contact: Lori Gaskill lorijgaskill {AT} attbi.com
March 19, 2003

STUDENTS FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO AT BOULDER'S TECHNE INITIATIVE
LAUNCH UPDATED WEBSITE FEATURING NEW CONTENT FROM INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS

BOULDER, Colorado (March 19, 2003) -- Digital art students from the
University of Colorado at Boulder's TECHNE initiative have just released
the 2.1 version of the "Histories of Internet Art" web site featuring 
over
two dozen video and email interviews as well as streaming archives of
performances and presentations by recent visitors to the TECHNE lab.  
The
international net artists and curators featured on the site include Mark
Napier, Young Hae-Chang Heavy Industries, Ben Benjamin, Melinda Rackham,
Alex Galloway, Lev Manovich, Giselle Beiguelman, Heath Bunting, John F.
Simon Jr., Erik Loyer, Mary Flanagan, Lisa Jevbratt, John Klima,
Christiane Paul, DJ Spooky, Mark Tribe, Andy Deck, Randall Packer and 
many
others.

The site also includes a curated exhibition of 35 net-based art works, a
section devoted to net theory, and a survey of the new work being 
created
by students working in TECHNE's Experimental Digital Art Studio. This
easy-to-navigate site with its stunning design and exploratory content 
is
produced by undergraduate and graduate students in conjunction with
Department of Art and Art History's TECHNE initiative, the ATLAS 
program's
campus-wide Technology, Arts, and Media curriculum, the Alt-X Digital 
Arts
Foundation, and the blurr lab.

The site is currently located at http://art.colorado.edu/hiaff

"This student-built website is still very much in its infancy and yet in 
a
very short period of time, the students have produced a fabulous
multi-media, online resource for both our program and other programs
around the world who choose to use our site as part of their own 
research
and development," says CU Professor and TECHNE Faculty Director Mark
Amerika. "Over the next few months, the students will build a back-end
database which will enable the site to grow exponentially both in its
curatorial and theoretical aspects as well as its technical
functionality."

"The nature of our work each year is usually inspired by the group mind
and so each year the site has evolved in different ways," says John 
Vega,
former digital art student and Senior Creative Director of the site.
"While new content is always being added, each version is a unique
reflection of the ideas held by the associated class."

"Working on HIAFF is like doing what I wanted to do when I set out in
multimedia: group (student) oriented focus upon art on the net with
unlimited potential for learning and exploration," says HIAFF project
manager and TECHNE student Lori Gaskill.

The TECHNE site at art.colorado.edu most recently featured the "Mapping
Transitions" online exhibition curated by Amerika and Christiane Paul,
Adjunct Curator of New Media at the Whitney Museum of American Art.  The
exhibition included three newly commissioned works of Internet art 
created
by artists selected for the 2002 Whitney Biennial, all of whom visited 
the
CU-Boulder campus last Fall and who participated in the opening panel
discussion at a major conference entitled "Rethinking the Visual."

TECHNE is a practice-based research initiative located inside the
University of Colorado's Department of Art and Art History. TECHNE 
enables
its faculty, students and research associates to utilize both highly
specialized and easily accessible hardware and software applications to
further demonstrate the value of building more interactive, digital art
projects while critically analyzing their place in the world. Research
projects are varied and investigate many contemporary subjects whose
cultural implications bring to light the growing interdependency between
the arts and sciences.

ATLAS is a campuswide initiative at the University of Colorado at 
Boulder
and is dedicated to the understanding and application of information and
communication technology in curriculum, teaching, research, and 
outreach.

The Alt-X Network (www.altx.com) is one of the oldest surviving art and
writing sites on the net. It began as a gopher site back in early 1993 
and
has since produced and distributed a vast array of content including the
Hyper-X online exhibition space, an artist ebook series, the "ebr" new
media forum, Alt-X Audio, Black Ice fiction, and various live net 
events.

disciplines within the university and also the traditional lines drawn
between industry and academe.
