Re: <nettime> ISEA 2011 fees


Hi all,

I'm in complete agreement with many of the issues that have been raised in this thread. I also wrote the ISEA organizers saying much the same. And yes, let's organize things otherwise...it's certainly possible. In other words, "count me in".

best,

Renee

These fees make me seriously reconsider my participation in ISEA  2011.
I wonder if our money is not better spent organizing a
counter-conference that does not discriminate based on ability to  pay.
Perhaps we would then be able to have a real "international  symposium
on electronic art".

Electronic art has always been the bastard child of corporate
sponsorship -- sometimes disguised through the dodgy mediation of
academic prestige. Yet electronic art is one of the most important  set
of lenses/vehicles that we have for the perception of global  systems.
