[Nettime-nl] REMINDER: Funware Conference 27 Nov, Baltan Laboratories, Eindhoven

during STRP
Saturday 27 November 2010
10:00-15:30 hrs at Baltan Laboratories, Eindhoven

Speakers: Wendy Chun, Matthew Fuller, Andrew Goffey, Wilfried Hou Je Bek, Adrian Mackenzie, Michael Murtaugh and Simon Yuill.
Introduction & moderation: Olga Goriunova

Contrary to the belief that software is a very serious issue, a battlefield of big business interest and freedom fighters, and a field guided by rationality and formalisation, it is actually an area of practice and thinking that often advances through random acts, absurd use, jokes and curiosity. International speakers will argue that art, and in particular software art, can play a crucial role in the production of the world, undermining the seeming solidity of the infrastructural backbone of our society and opening it up for intervention and reinvention. The symposium will also explore the issue of fun and the potential of the humour in software art. What is humour after all? It is in fact an artistic and critical attitude to reality?
