Public Talk: Alexei Shulgin

3pm,  November 5th, 2003
Piet Zwart Institute, Overblaak 85, Rotterdam


/////////////
Alexei Shulgin as a Creative Filter.

In his talk Alexei Shulgin will give an introduction to his major artistic and
curatorial projects from the perspective of the information excess and
data noise we experience today.  Where do artists get inspiration
from during the crisis of Religion and after the end of Folk?  Why do we need
to produce more in the situation of overproduction?  What is creative activity
in the shade of a divided institutional art world?  New art forms,
brought up by the fast development of technology.  These and many other
interesting topics with be touched upon in Alexei's richly illustrated talk,
along with a report on his work at PZI.  This project for the web 
addresses issues of individual
resistance to consumer culture, information filtering, the cleansing 
of public space,
privacy protection, art and business strategies, 'analogueness' vs. 
'digitalness',
low-tech and simplicity vs. high-tech.
