[Nettime-nl] art centre argos is looking for an ICT collaborator

argos is looking for an ICT collaborator
As a centre for the arts with a focus on audiovisual media and visual culture, argos (based in Brussels) keeps close track of digital evolutions. Both our activities and communication are largely determined by the potential of new technologies: from online databases and CRM applications to RAID archiving and VoIP telecommunication. As audiovisual media are taking on new shapes, the production and distribution models evolve as well (e.g. High Definition formats, tapeless video-storage, IPTV, P2P and streaming), developments with repercussions on the various functions of argos.

argos is looking for a collaborator who can help to steer these developments in the right direction, both logistically, as with regards to infrastructure or content. This collaborator will assert him-/herself to translate the activities of argos efficiently into a digital environment, investigate the various possibilities, both receptively and proactively and follow up on the implementations, in collaboration with the communication team and/or external collaborators. He or she will make out the link between technology and content and from that perspective he will think along about the use and applications of ICT, with regards to communication, production, archiving, distribution and presentation.

Function content:
Specifically the ICT collaborator will be responsible for the following aspects:
Management of the network / System Administrator
Following up on and implementing broadband technologies, according to needs and ambitions (e.g. streaming)

Following up on the evolutions concerning data control and management (databases and digital archiving through SAN and backup systems, VoIP ...)
Management and structural development of the web environment of argos (hosting, CMS, site, mailing...)
Offering ICT support during productions and exhibition project
Support the translation of conceptual ambitions into projects and financing.
Reflect proactively on trends and innovations in ICT, web-based communication, audiovisual media and knowledge policy

Experience with the design of web environments and Content Management Systems
Experience with setting up and managing networks
Affinities with the domains of ‘audiovisual production’ and ‘media art’
