Over Economies of the Commons:

De Balie, het Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid, Beelden voor  
de Toekomst, Stichting Kennisland en het Virtueel Platform organiseren  
een internationale conferentie en een publieksprogramma rond de nieuwe  
vormen van audiovisuele cultuur die momenteel op internet ontstaan. De  
exponentieel groeiende mogelijkheden om publieke toegang te bieden tot  
omroeparchieven, audiovisuele collecties van cultuurinstellingen via  
internet stimuleren deze nieuwe cultuurvormen. Ook ontstaan nieuwe  
vormen van cultuurproductie waarin audiovisuele werken worden  
uitgewisseld, hergebruikt en gecombineerd tot nieuwe werken en worden  
via internet meer rechtstreekse verbindingen tussen maker en publiek  
tot stand gebracht.

De conferentie richt zich in het bijzonder op de vraag naar de  
duurzaamheid van deze nieuwe audiovisuele collecties op internet en de  
mogelijkheden om deze te kunnen openen voor creatief hergebruik en  
nieuwe cultuurproductie.

Terwijl de activiteit op dit terrein zeer groot is en een zeer breed  
schala aan actoren omvat, waaronder nationale archieven,  
omroeporganisaties, maar ook professionele cultuurproducenten en  
instellingen, tot en met informele p2p bestandsuitwisselingsprojecten,  
blijft de duurzaamheid van al die collecties on-line zeer ongewis.  
Massieve publieke investeringen in deze audiovisuele bronnen is een  
voor de hand liggende oplossing, met al even duidelijke nadelen.  
Economies of the Commons onderzoekt welke alternatieve economische  
modellen voorhanden zijn, of ontwikkeld kunnen worden, die deze  
onschatbaar waardevolle audiovisuele collecties op internet duurzaam  
kunnen maken. Wellicht moeten we daarvoor de paradoxale vraag  
beantwoorden wat een geschikt business model zou kunnen zijn voor de  
'digital commons', voor het digitale publieke domein?

Economies of the Commons richt zich op drie kernkwesties: strategieën  
voor duurzaamheid, nieuwe modellen en vormen van waarde-creatie, en  
het potentieel van creatief hergebruik van de publieke digitale  
bronnen - de 'digital commons'.

Onze belangrijkste vragen zijn:

- Wat voor strategieën zijn beschikbaar om de groei van deze nieuwe  
publieke kennisbronnen te bevorderen en hun duurzaamheid op langere  
termijn te garanderen?
- Hoe wordt waarde gecreëerd rond de 'digital commons' en hoe kan die  
waarde worden aangewend ten behoeve van het publiek belang?
- Hoe kunnen deze digitale bronnen worden geactiveerd als een  
creatieve drijfkracht voor de hedendaagse cultuur, hoe kan het  
hergebruik van deze ongekend rijke digitale bronnen worden ondersteund  
en gestimuleerd?

Economies of the Commons Conference: Day I

Location: De Balie, Centre for Culture and Politics, Amsterdam
Friday April 11, 2008 - 10 - 18.00 hrs

10.00: Opening and Welcome

10.30: Conference Keynote:
Peter Kaufman: The Economics of Film and Video Distribution in the  
Digital Age

11.30: Panel 1: Audiovisual Archives
Audiovisual archives are at the beginning of a profound change in the  
way that they have traditionally operated for the last fifty years.  
This change is primarily the result of two key developments: [1]  
Digitisation of analogue material becoming an integral part of the  
working processes; and [2] New online services that emerge, such as  
video on demand and online repositories for education.
Speakers:
Pelle Snickars (SLBA), Poppy Simpson (BFI Screenonline), Tobias  
Golodnoff (Dansk Culturarv), Roei Amit (INA).

13.00: Lunch break

14.00: Panel 2: Commons-based Peer Production
The digital world of internet is increasingly conceptualised as an  
expanding universe of content that not just sits there to be looked  
at, but that also can be re-used to create even more content. Much  
research has already been devoted to user-generated content and the  
processes through which that content is produced. But what are the  
economies of peer production? How do new developments compare to firm  
production and market-based production?
Speakers:
Felix Stalder (Open Flows), Jamie King (Steal This Film), Jon Phillips  
(Creative Commons), Sebastian Lütgert (oil21.org)
Moderator: Paul Keller (Kennisland)

15.30 Coffee break

15.45: Panel 3: European Digital Library
Individual efforts cannot meet the overarching requirements leading to  
ubiquitous access on a pan-European scale and do not accumulate to the  
critical mass needed to steer the research and development roadmap  
advocated by the industry. This gap is acknowledged by policy makers.  
Now European and national governments need to take responsibility to  
close the gap.
Speakers:
Paul Doorenbosch (KB - National Library of The Netherlands), Jill  
Cousins (Director European Digital Library), Sonja de Leeuw (Utrecht  
University/ case: Video Active), Georg Eckes (Deutsches Filminstitut /  
case: European Film Gateway)

17.15: Wrap up first conference day

Economies of the Commons Conference: Day II

Location: De Balie, Centre for Culture and Politics, Amsterdam
Saturday April 12, 2008 - 11 - 18.00 hrs

11.00: Panel 4: Uncommon Business Models
This panel will take on the subject of open business models. The  
workshop will be kicked off by two experts from related media  
industries that are arguably ahead of the curve.
Speakers:
Jan Velterop, CEO of Knewco and one of the leading experts on Open  
Access will give us an insight in the deployment of open business  
models in scientific publishing. Over the past couple of years Open  
Access has been able to provide a valid and sustainable alternative in  
this 7 billion dollar industry.
Jonas Woost, Head of Music at the pioneering music company Lastfm will  
pick up from there. In his presentation he will highlight how his  
company has successfully generated income streams in an industry that  
has shown to be particularly vulnerable in the open environment of the  
internet.
Followed by a panel discussion with: Peter Kaufman (Intelligent  
Television), Roei Amit (INA), Rick Prelinger (Prelinger Archives) and  
Eerde Hovinga (NIBG-tbc).
Moderator: Harry Verwayen (Kennisland)

12.30: Lunch Break

13.30: Panel 5: Intangible Heritage Resources in the (Non-)Western World
In our age of increasing global connectivity, cultural mobility and  
digital reproduction, intangible heritage is increasingly being  
appreciated, appropriated and exploited. Traditional music styles from  
various parts of the world have enchanted numerous musicians, scholars  
and admirers all over the world. Still, the preservation and  
transmission of intangible heritage faces an abundance of challenges  
and difficulties.
Speakers:
Joost Smiers (Prof. em. Political Science of the Arts), Shubha  
Chaudhuri (ARCE), Anthony McCann (University of Ulster), Wim van  
Zanten (ICTM)

15.00: Coffee Break

15.15: Panel 6: Professional Cultural Producers
This panel addresses the public content zone beyond that of user- 
generated-content: the possibilities and problems related to making  
professionally produced cultural productions publicly available on the  
internet. What kind of revenue models exist for that? How is the  
public interest in accessibility squared with the need of  
professionals to make a living? What new and alternative distribution  
models emerge for professional cultural producers and cultural  
institutions?

Speakers:
Florian Schneider (Kein.tv), Kenneth Goldsmith (Ubuweb), Bauke  
Freiburg (Fabchannel / Culture Player), Chai Locher (NFTVM), Rick  
Prelinger (Prelinger Archives).
Moderator: Eric Kluitenberg

Mashup Cinema

Location: De Balie, Centre for Culture and Politics, Amsterdam
Saturday April 12, 2008 - 21.00 - 00.00

Found footage and the digital commons
Public screening, live cinema & performance program

Found Footage has always been an important source of inspiration for  
experimental filmmakers. The use of 'found images' is not just  
affordable, it is mostly employed to attach a different meaning  
through a new composition of images to existing icons. With materials  
found on the floor, in the waste baskets of montage rooms, or in a  
dust bin outside the studio, filmmakers are conveying messages, which  
besides being pretentious or at times politically charged, can also  
simply be funny.
During this special evening about reuse of digital and analogue images  
you can expect a presentation by the internet's most renown film  
archivist Rick Prelinger. He will present a selection from his  
monumental archive  of 'sponsored' and 'ephemeral' films about media  
publics and media producers from the 1930s to the 1960s, which can be  
read as a historical commentary on our contemporary digital media  
culture.
Next to this a short-film program has been put together with films  
that attach a new meaning to existing analogue film materials.

These screenings are interspersed with short music and sound  
performances in which  music fragments are mixed live, sampled from  
digital remix projects such as ccMixter and Freesound, and historical  
sound samples presented by Kenneth Goldsmith (Ubuweb)

Films:

Outer Space
Peter Tscherkassky 10’
Suggesting a convulsive hall of mirrors, Peter Tscherkassky's  
widescreen tour de force Outer Space reinvents a 1981 Barbara Hershey  
horror vehicle, leaving the original's crystalline surface intact only  
to violently shatter its narrative illusion.

L’Arrivée
Peter Tscherkassky 2’
L'Arrivée is Tscherkassky's second homage to the Lumiére-brothers.  
First you see the arrival of the film itself, which shows the arrival  
of a train at a station. But that train collides with a second train,  
causing a violent crash, which leads us to an unexpected third  
arrival, the arrival of a beautiful woman – the happy-end.

Light is Calling
Bill Morisson 8’
A scene from The Bells (1926) is optically reprinted and edited to  
Michael Gordon’s 7 minute composition. A meditation on the fleeting  
nature of life and love, as seen through the roiling emulsion of an  
film.

Beirut Outtakes
Peggy Ahwesh 8’
The cellars of a traditional cinema in the entertainment district of  
Beirut are opened after years of being hermetically sealed. Peggy  
Awash constructed a veritable time machine out of the film materials  
found there, with a spoken montage of old Lebanese drama and western  
action movies.

Gravity
Nicholas Provost 6’
The reassuring world of multiplied cinematographic kisses is shattered  
by a stroboscopic effect that plunges and looses us into the dizzying  
vertigo of the embrace where, as often in Provost’s cinema, love  
becomes a passionate battle in which monsters are finally unmasked.

Bitches Brew
Heidrun Holzfeind 11’
Sampled from mostly male directed movies from the 60s to today, the  
video shows women who take back control and power, fight off their  
attackers or take revenge on their assailants. A man’s nightmare!

The Mashup Cinema program is presented in association with balie cinema
