Open Call for Contributions Internet Pornography Seminar Dates: June 1 & 2 2007 Location: Paradiso, Amsterdam Organized by: Institute of Network Cultures and Paradiso in collaboration with Katrien Jacobs and Matteo Pasquinelli http://www.networkcultures.org/netporn The Institute of Network Cultures and Paradiso would like to invite you to send in your work for the second international seminar and exhibition on internet pornography. This edition will focus on topics as (gender)identity, social and ethnic minority groups, politics and censorship. The seminar will take place in Amsterdam on June 1 & 2 in 2007. We are currently looking for people who are working on this subject and would like to present their work to an international audience. If you are a theorist, artist, researcher, producer or in another way engaged in the field of netporn, we encourage you to send in an abstract of your work. Seminar program The event will take place on Friday June 1st and Saturday June 2nd. On both days there will be opening lectures by keynote speakers. After the keynote lectures, both days will be filled with clusters of presentations and lectures concerning one of the four seminar themes. In the evening of the second day there will be an extensive artistic program with screenings and performances. Exhibition A two-day exhibition will be held at the seminar venue. In this exhibition ten artists get the opportunity to show their views on the subject of pornography, sexuality, technology and the human body. It will include different kinds of media art like installations, net.art and video art. Seminar topics The seminar has four main themes as focus points for the presentations: - The revolution of alt pornography: in what way has alternative and do-it-yourself pornography democratized porn production? What are the reactions of the commercial industry? How does it influence our perception of porn? - Porn niches and ?trans? gender: stereotypical social divisions with groups like hetero, gay, transsexual and transgenders seems to matter less and less. What new revolutionary identities are arising, are old patterns making way for a larger network of sexual possibilities? - Globalization of porn and the influence of ethnic minorities: this session wants to define the way various ethnical groups make use of the possibilities of porn. What are the ways in which they shape their own sexuality, using of new technologies? - Politics of netporn; censorship, new rights and nightmares: Porn is subject of repression (censorship) as well as progression (emancipation, liberalization). Where do we draw the line? What are the newly aqcuired rights that we already got out of this still expanding subject? The first seminar made it possible for people to meet each other and exchange views on a topic that is still controversial. It resulted in a broad overview of developments in the field of netporn. With the second edition there will be a more in-depth look and sharper focus, based on the four themes that are provided.
