When you have a skill so important and powerful as technical expertise,
it is your duty to use that skill as an artist not a profiteer. And we
should only look up to the artists. All great art is political. That is
the soul that embodies a piece. Apolitical art or apolitical software is
a contradiction. It is a false work that is life denying, a cruelty
labored on people.

kalkulacija uspjeha

without comments

Gadji beri bimba? Glandridi laula lonni cadori! – H-Alter – Udruga za medijsku kulturu

Dakle, od dadaizma možemo nau?iti i to: pokušaj i odvažnost važniji su od rezultata i kalkulacija uspjeha. Ali tome prethodi stvaranje uvjeta mogu?nosti, što se može nazvati i slobodom. Sloboda je stvar vrste odluke i upornog rada, a ne dar s neba koji zati?e “siromašne duhom”.

the end of art as a pure ‘thing’

without comments

The Future of Art – Nick Stewart – Appropedia: The sustainability wiki

Essentially, art is structured in consciousness. Objects and images are but evidence, a trace, left after the activity of art has ended. We substitute this evidence, objects and images, for a living process and so remove the potentiality of art from everyday life. Art as a quality of life would mean the end of art as a pure ‘thing’, something separate from the rest of life.

primacy of the art object

without comments

Between Art and Anarchism

The similarities between the avant-garde and anarchism extend beyond their similar “shock and rupture” tactics; political theorists and art historians alike have declared both to be failed movements. In the avant-garde movement, this failure arises from a paradoxical hierarchy encased in the primacy of the art object.

If the art object itself contains the power to elicit epiphany, than the artist is elevated to a status “uniquely open to the world,” and viewers that are open to the transformative experience of the object are likewise more educated and socially aware than those who are not.

Do It With Others (DIWO)

without comments

newmediafix.net » Blog Archive » Do It With Others (DIWO) at the Dark Mountain – Exhibition Opening

The Dark Mountain Project is ‘a new cultural movement for an age of global disruption.’ It aims to ‘question the stories that underpin our failing civilisation, to craft new ones for the age ahead and to write clearly and honestly about our true place in the world.’ Do It With Others (DIWO) at the Dark Mountain, a mail-art project at HTTP Gallery, is a cultural collaboration for this age. “Uncivilisation,” the Dark Mountain Manifesto, calls for a cultural response to our current predicament. Its challenge was offered to network-minded artists, technologists, writers and activists as a provocation – to work together to re-envision the narratives and infrastructures that govern our relationships with the natural world, and how they might be unravelled and rewoven to reconfigure our place in it. As “Uncivilisation” concludes, ‘the end of the world as we know it is not the end of the world full stop.’

Artists, technologists, writers, activists and all other living beings were invited to correspond with each other across physical and digital mail networks, and the exhibition at HTTP present the results of this process.
