[Nettime-nl] Booklaunch Witnessing You, on Trust and Truth in a Networked World

Booklaunch Witnessing You, on Trust and Truth in a Networked World
23 Jan 2013, 6-8 pm, de Appel arts centre
Prins Hendrikkade 142, Amsterdam

De Appel arts centre presents the publication Witnessing You, On Trust
and Truth in a Networked World by Caroline Nevejan. The book includes
contributions and analyses of research practices of 13 artists. The
artistic research is fundamental to the unique interdisciplinary
research programme at TU Delft - the Participatory Systems Initiative.

Ann Demeester, director of de Appel arts centre, will interview
artists about their contributions and experiences and focus on how the
research has had an impact on their work.
Professor Kitty Zijlmans, Leiden University Centre for the Arts in
Society, will position the artist's work in the context of current
international research practice.

Researcher Caroline Nevejan focuses on the implications of technology
on society. Together with thirteen artists she explores todayâs
footprint on the future. When time and place are not shared, the
resulting engagement in merging realities is a challenge to human
dignity. New values for the (meta-)design of participatory systems, in
which people accept responsibility for their words and deeds to
negotiate trust and truth in a networked world, are investigated.

Using the Being-Here site, created by Mediamatic Lab, artists shape
their contributions according to the basic rules of the essay
including image. Texts, artworks, impressions and analyses include
work by Kadir van Lohuizen, Debra Solomon, Ronald Ophuis, Zoro Feigl,
Afaina de Jong, Chin Lien-Chen & Chris Vermaas, Anna Carlgren, Merlijn
Twaalfhoven, Martin Butler, Karen Lancel & Hermen Maat, Jodi, Luna
Maurer & Andreas Zangger, Angelo Vermeulen and with a foreword by
Manuel Castells.
