[Nettime-nl] ignite amsterdam 11 / NEW ORDER

Dear all, 

Tomorrow is the kick off of a three-day event on art, society and energy. New Order Fest takes place at Mediamatic Bank on Thursday 27, Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 October.

Tomorrow is the 11th Ignite Amsterdam. From photographing Sweet Crazies on the streets of Ethiopia, to digital 
organisms based on fungi. Expect possible future scenarios for a 
post-carbon world alongside traditional craftsmanship. With Chris Lee, Frank van de Goot, Katja Novitskova & Rory Hyde, Tim Ayres, Lynne Leegte, Jaron Beekes, Jeroen Braspenning, Jan Koen Lomans, Emre Huner, Vincent Schipper, Cardboarders, Ties van de Werff, & Jan Hoek. 

Saturday we will be talking with Sascha Pohflepp, Lucy McRae and Martti Kalliala about how energy lies at the root of art, architecture, and politics. 

Sunday Eva Gladek (industrial ecologist and director of Except Integrated Sustainability) will talk about self-sufficient urban food production and the future of urban resource 
management, waste cycles and cities that are aware of entropy. Sascha Pohïepp, Liam Young, Femke Herregraven, Chris Lee, DUS architects,
 Martti Kalliala, Lucy McRae, Rory Hyde and Katja Novitskova will map 
out their proposals for a 'post carbon' world. 

Hope that some can come over to discuss these topics with us. More at www.mediamatic.net/neworderfest

> Subject: [Nettime-nl] dieter roth visits maastricht
> At the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the first Charles Nypels
> Prize: A symposium on books, design and art
> Monday, October 31, 2011 
> 10:00 - 17:00 
> Jan van Eyck Academie Maastricht
> On October 31, 1986 the artist Dieter Roth visited Maastricht and the
> Jan van Eyck Academie where he had an exhibition of his work. Roth was
> to be the first receiver of the Charles Nypels Prize, a new bi-annual
> award of 25.000 Guilders for innovation "in any area of design from a
> typographical and conceptual perspective".
> The symposium DIETER ROTH VISITS MAASTRICHT sets out to research and
> reconstruct a constellation that lead to the rather unorthodox decision
> to give the inaugural prize to the internationally renowned artist.
> Established in honor of the dutch typographer Charles Nypels (1895 â
> 1952) the prize aimed to give recognition to Roth for his "epoch-making
> book objects". Nevertheless it created quite a scandal across the dutch
> design scene.
> Exactly 25 years later, to the very day, the design department at the
> Jan van Eyck Academie has decided to revisit that peculiar moment.
> DIETER ROTH VISITS MAASTRICHT will discuss certain aspects in the work
> of Dieter Roth that might shed light to a specific understanding of the
> very notion of "design". It refuses to be reduced to an industry, it is
> rather characterized by a deep disappointment with the options available
> within a discipline and the irresistible attempt to blur the boundaries
> between performance and sculpture, theater and visual art, high culture
> and low.
> The symposium will discuss the potential of revisiting Roths work from a
> today's perspective: Decay and deterioration are by no means exclusive
> properties of a seemingly past analog aera, industrial production or the
> welfare state; just as ephemerality, fugitive materials and precarity do
> not belong solely to the realm of the digital.
> The work of Dieter Roth may be well situated on the passage from analog
> to digital, from concrete to evasive, from experiment to obsession, and
> vice versa. Here one might encounter the unexpected perspective of a
> materialism of the precarious state of things and minds, an anticynical,
> open source approach to reverse engineer reality, the emancipatory power
> of pessimism.
> The symposium DIETER ROTH VISITS MAASTRICHT will feature contributions
> by Corinne Diserens, Olaf Nicolai and Jan Voss. It is organized by the
> advising researchers David Bennewith, John Palmesino and Florian
> Schneider.
> Corinne Diserens is a curator based in Paris and Berlin. She is the
> former director of MusÃes de Marseille, MusÃe des beaux arts de Nantes,
> and Museion, Bozen/Bolzano. Currently she serves as president of the
> jury of Akademie Schloss Solitude, Stuttgart. Since September 2011
> Corinne Diserens is the new director of the Ecole de recherche graphique
> (ERG), Brussels. In Marseille she has curated one of the last
> exhibitions of Dieter Roth before he died on June 5th, 1998.
> Olaf Nicolai is an artist based in Berlin. His work has been shown at
> museums and galleries worldwide, including documenta X in 1997 and the
> 49th and 51st Venice Biennale in 2001 and 2005. Currently he is teaching
> as professor for sculpture and the basic principles of three-dimensional
> design at the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich.
> Jan Voss is one of the founders and owners of the Boekie Woekie bookshop
> established as an artist-run initiative in 1986 in Amsterdam. He was a
> close friend and collaborator of Dieter Roth. Jan Voss accompanied him
> on his trip from Basel to Maastricht at the end of October 1986. Jan
> Voss is one of the initiators of the Dieter Roth Academy.
> Attendance is free but RVSP is kindly requested.
