basics festival 2009/10: be part

AUSSCHREIBUNG F?R K?NSTLERISCHE PROJEKTE


WAS IST BASICS?
Basics - das seit 2004 stattfindende Festival f?r aktuelle Kunstprojekte
und theoretische Reflexionen - setzt sich mit den Auswirkungen von
Technologie auf unser t?gliches Leben auseinander, die nicht nur von den
M?glichkeiten, sondern vorwiegend von den Anwendungen dieser Technologien
abh?ngig sind. Diese Anwendungen sind nicht zwingend in diese
Technologien eingeschrieben, sie werden in vielf?ltigen und komplexen
Interaktionen von gesellschaftlichen, k?nstlerischen und politischen
Strukturen mit produziert. [www.basics-festival.net]

> Hacker Space Festival 2009 | Call For Proposals
>
> In 2008, we organized HSF[1] on the spot, as an ad-hoc meeting for
> hackerspaces-related networks, technical and artistic research  
> emerging
> from them and social questionning arising from them. This sudden
> experiment proved to be a huge success, as much as on the
> self-organizing level as on the participants and meetings quality, as
> well as the emotionally-charged ambient, the kind of which you make
> fond memories.
>
> The 2008 edition generated a strong emulation in France, from its
> historical role as the first official hack meeting there, and in  
> Europe
> with the subsequent creation of the Hacker Space Brussels[2], the
> rapprochement with The Fiber in Amsterdam and the hackerspaces.org[3]
> network. Initiatives of hackerspace openings in Grenoble or Lille, or
> the upcoming FrHack[4] conference show an actual enthusiasm in the
> French hackers community that was doomed to the "underground" not so
> long ago. We salute these initiatives and their diversity!
>
> Soon enough, we wanted to reiterate the HSF experience : however, it
> was out of the question to institutionalize this temporary autonomous
> zone, nor make it an ersatz of the previous edition, nor even to wrap
> it into an "elite" or "underground" aura. On the opposite, we ardently
> desire; and especially to explore further, in all directions some
> lesser known domains (see below) et foster meeting and sharing around
> experiences at the confluence of art, technology and politics.
>
> The world financial crisis, the decay of democracy in Europe, the
> obscurantism, paranoia and lack of culture presiding over legislation
> (Internet and Reaction... Err... Creation Law[5][6]) seem a fertile
> environment for the sensible development of new (social...) life  
> forms.
> Quick! Let's rest for a few days in jubilation and ecstasy to take a
> deep breathe of freedom under the indelicate smells of the medicine
> factory nearby!
>
> For if the public space is shrinking to oblivion, where any side-step
> becomes suspect, and that, from an early age (deviant behavior
> detection in nursery school), where moving without a mobile phone
> becomes suspect (hello you Julien Coupat[7], a French political
> prisoner in France!), there's a domain that the Leviathan would have a
> lot of trouble to contain, and for a reason: that of sensitivity. Even
> the desperate attempts of the State to block the free and premonitory
> expression of sense (hello you Demeure du Chaos![8]) cannot do  
> anything
> against a loud laughter or a knowing glance, a sensual kiss or an
> explosion of colors.
>
> Sensitivity, we could say, is what is left to a human being when she
> has nothing anymore, and differenciates her from the body corporate or
> the institution, that are, in essence, devoid of it. Therefore, Art
> definitely remains the public space to share between humans, and only
> between us. And if it the last one to share, we propose to explore it
> and take it over during the upcoming edition of the Hacker Space
> Festival, from the 26th to 30th of June, 2009 at Vitry sur Seine[9].

Subject: <nettime-ann> Short-term research positions: Asian Cultural
	Studies

*Short-Term Research Positions: Asian Cultural Studies*

The Cultural and Material life of media piracy is a three-year project 
carried out by the Sarai programme of the CSDS, Delhi, India in 
collaboration with the Alternative Law Forum Bangalore, India. The 
project seeks open a different debates on piracy other than simply that 
of enforcement and criminality in Asia. We hope to generate discussions 
of cultural needs, community practices of sharing and circulation in 
societies of high inequality. We will also look at media industry 
approaches to piracy and enforcement strategies. In addition, there will 
be ethnographic and quantitative work on media use in neighborhoods.

The main research node spans South Asia, with comparative work in China 
and South East Asia. The Sarai-ALF teams of researchers work in tandem 
with an international project on media piracy with fellow researchers in 
Brazil, South Africa and Russia coordinated by the SSRC (New York).  The 
project is supported by the IDRC (Canada)

We are looking for bright, energetic and qualified researchers who can 
work in collaboration with a regional and international team. Applicants 
must demonstrate abilities to research and write on the subject. A 
familiarity with the debate on piracy, intellectual Property and the 
creative commons is preferable. Social science and humanities applicants 
should have completed postgraduate degrees, law students a four-year 
programme.

The position is ideal for researchers working on their Ph.d/M.Phil, 
wanting to combine it with ongoing research and interest in media, law 
and cultural studies. Independent researchers with a clear, demonstrable 
research capacity and experience may also apply.

*Researcher One: Beijing*
The researcher will be media and copy culture circuits in China post 
video/VCD and the relationship to the international legal regime. 
Research will be fieldwork based. Researchers must be bi-lingual in 
Mandarin and English.

*
Researcher Two: Hong Kong*
The researcher will be looking at Hong Kong Media industries after video 
and the worlds of piracy in South China. Researchers should be fluent 
and bi-lingual in Cantonese and English.

Remuneration will be approximately *USD 5000 for a six-month period*. A 
publication quality research paper is expected at the conclusion of the 
research period.

Interested applicants may send their CV and a written research sample to 
*researchjobs {AT} sarai.net* by *April 20th, 2009*. *Applications without a 
written research sample will not be entertained.*
