[Nettime-ro] Announcement Workshop Live Art

Workshop Live Art
Using new technologies in performance

26 - 31 August 
Amsterdam - Maastricht Summer University in collaboration with 
Netherlands Media Art Institute, Montevideo / Time Based Arts 

In this media saturated world, contemporary art practice is constantly
expanding the use of technology. The workshop examines the historical and
technological developments in performance arts. The course will be a
creative and practical collaboration between performing and media artists,
and will be contextualised by critical discussions of contemporary practice;
video art as fine art practice, digital art & performance, interactive
performance and time-based media. 

The British artists group Blast Theory will help attendants to gain new
access to history and technology which will allow them to move away from
fixed images and media. In the evenings a special program is developed to
further explore the immersion of different media in performance.

Blast Theory is a group of four artists based in London who make live events
for theatres, clubs, galleries and the street. The groups work confronts a
media saturated world in which popular culture rules. It uses video and
computers to ask questions about the ideologies present in the information
that envelops us. Founded on a belief in collective work and an openness
about creativity Blast Theory collaborates with a wide range of creative
people: from DJs to dancers, from CDROM designers to pop promo directors.

FEE: 550,- euro (including day and evening programme at Netherlands Media
Art Institute, admission to cultural evening programme of AMSU and daily
lunch & refreshments.)

SCHOLARSHIPS: There is a limited number of scholarships available
