kristeva on interdisciplinarity

without comments

Report from Arcus, Japan November 2011 | Trans Artists

“One cannot be an amateur, or decide one day ‘Let’s be interdisciplinary”. A university may decide to develop in that direction, but what matters is that each researcher finds and establishes some complicities with other researchers so that interdisciplinarity comes from the base of the pyramid and works its way up. One can only benefit from interdisciplinary practices if researchers meet other researchers whilst learning how to discuss both their competencies and the outcome of their interaction; therefore contributing to the exposure of the risks inherent in an interdisciplinary practice…the first obstacle is often linked to individual competencies coupled with a tendency to jealously protect one’s own domain. Specialists are often too protective of their own prerogative, do not actually work with other colleagues, and therefore do not teach their students to construct a diagonal axis in their methodology.”

Participation

without comments

Premio Internazionale di Arte Partecipativa

Art which interacts with an area and its communities to produce models for social change.

An art form which goes beyond the conventional market-driven strategies of contemporary art to become a source of inspiration embedded in the local community.

A stimulus for thought and debate.

A means for encouraging new forms of collaboration.

…very original idea of using art as a meeting of the ways and a place for discussion between those who are elected to govern and those who are governed.

intersubjectivity<>empathy

without comments

Intersubjectivity – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In phenomenology, intersubjectivity performs many functions. It allows empathy, which in phenomenology involves experiencing another person as a subject rather than just as an object among objects. In so doing, one experiences oneself as seen by the Other, and the world in general as a shared world instead of one only available to oneself.

basic rule in group-work

without comments

G. I. Gurdjieff – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In addition, one should never violate the one basic rule in group-work which guarantees the harmonious development of the Work: the practice of external considering.

Whenever group-work fails, the failure may be traced to a lack of external considering among its members.

“artistic surfing” (aka “surf clubbing,” “spirit surfing”)

without comments

February 2009

What I’m calling “artistic surfing” (aka “surf clubbing,” “spirit surfing”) takes its inspiration from group blogging, particularly anonymous group photoblogs like 4chan.org. Internet “surf clubs” are basically invitation-only group photoblogs where artists surf the internet intuitively and obliquely, collect detritus (predominantly from commercial sites and social networking sites), recontextualize it via bricolage, titling, and Photoshop remixing, and post it at the surf club’s blog where it is often further recontextualized and reposted.

collaborative video online platform

without comments

Elmur.net

What? Why? Background

elmur.net is a non-profit initiative. It is not only an internet site; it’s also an audiovisual collective installation wishing to build a social dialogue through artistic creation. All the images you see in this site are at the same time, being projected on public spaces around the world. elmur.net is a platform at the service of society and its development.

elmur.net is a free public exhibition platform open to everyone. We invite the world to share its imagination and open up a visual dialog with the aim to inspire us to build up a better one.

elmur.net is a creative experiment; it is a practical application of the educational capabilities of the audiovisual media. The audiovisual revolution that has characterized the 20th century has already shown us the capabilities of the visual medium as a mould of cultures. Why shouldn’t we use it with positive means? We are in a moment of great transformation, and you can play an active roll on the shaping of this transformation.

There’s the need to build up a new global identity based on respect, understanding, solidarity and love. It’s time to awaken our consciousness as Earth inhabitants; we believe that we are all brothers and sisters, that happiness is a basic human right and that love is the greatest power of life.

elmur.net aims to bring art to the general public, promote open and free art exhibitions and at the same time promote artistic creation as a tool for the understanding of reality.

elmur.net IS STREET ART, SHARING & ENJOYMENT!

the bricoleur

without comments

2009 Tatiana Mazali : megafone.net

Nowadays we talk about performative technologies and performative identity to stress the process and relationship involved. The performative activities are fundamentally processual, a part of them will always remain subject to transformation, and will be absolutely impossible to define. The performativity is linked to the event, the event is linked to the bricolage and the bricolage is linked to the new technologies: the bricoleur (word related to Levi-Strauss) makes/processes structures by means of combining the events.

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.

Social constructivism

without comments

Social constructivism – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Social constructivism is a sociological theory of knowledge that applies the general philosophical constructionism into social settings, wherein groups construct knowledge for one another, collaboratively creating a small culture of shared artifacts with shared meanings. When one is immersed within a culture of this sort, one is learning all the time about how to be a part of that culture on many levels.
