Interview à propos de “sk-interfaces”

After having curated the seminal Art Biotech exhibition in France, in 2003, which has almost become the very manifesto of Biotech Art, five years later, the curator and media theorician Jens Hauser has proposed sk-interfaces, another impressive and cutting-edge exhibition "exploding borders in art, technology and society". First staged in Liverpool, this exhibition has been further enlarged to be shown in the City of Luxembourg (2009-2010).

Arte e interattività

Nel campo della comunicazione umana l’eccezione non è l’interattività ma la non interattività: la comunicazione interattiva esiste fin da quando esiste la nostra specie, quella non interattiva è molto più recente, risale alla realizzazione delle prime immagini, forse 40 mila anni fa, quando abbiamo iniziato a porre al di fuori del corpo una parte della conoscenza.

Humans, animals and robots. Interview to France Cadet

In her Cyborg manifesto Donna Haraway defines cyborgs as creatures simultaneously animal and machine: both active in the world of social reality and fiction. To what extent do your species of animal-robots question conventional boundaries between animal, human and machine?

Unsafe Distance

Distance is an interval in time and a condition of detachment in space. Distantia (Latin for distance) is an apparent essential and simple topic, in fact it is an intriguing condition of the living beings endlessly and dramatically balancing themselves between need and fear of contacts. Contacts, literally the opposite of distance, are a matter of life and death, their actions on the living beings related to their environment (ecosystem) is what renders the feeling of distance safe or unsafe. Un...

Conversation à trois

Si possono produrre, quasi in simultanea, arte e filosofia? Sulla scìa di quanto afferma Jean-Paul Thenot nel suo libro imperniato sul percorso artistico di Jean-Pierre Giovanelli, l’arte può diventare filosofia – nell’atto di prodursi - ponendo domande? Più che una risposta affermativa, si può aprire un discorso ricco di domande ...

Millesuoni. Intervista a Emanuele Quinz

Oggi l’universo della produzione musicale è estremamente complesso e ricco, e forse, ciò che caratterizza di più le tendenze attuali non solo della musica, ma dell’arte in generale è questa profonda permeabilità tra gli orizzonti, l’infrangersi delle frontiere tra discipline, della commistione tra i generi.

The Parliament Of Things

The King after many wars, now weary and despondent, is bankrupt of ideas and concepts. He is forced to call together a body, the Estates Generalé, that has not been called for nigh three hundred years. The first and second estate are hierarchical and managerial in thought, and only able to appropriate the ideas and concepts of others. The third estate, the commons, rich in creativity and life, is also summoned to the capital at his Majesty’s pleasure to talk and fill the coffers of the king, to ...

Ars Electronica 2004 Reportage (2). Derrick de Kerckhove

C’è una responsabilità nuova che hanno i media, non più su un piano morale ma anche su un piano economico. I media che sbagliano o che affermano il falso non vengono più presi in considerazione. Chi crede più ormai a National Enquire o ai paparazzini, non più paparazzi ma paparazzini, “paparazzetti” dell’informazione? Io credo fortemente alla grande importanza della credibilità, e questo è un grosso valore nel mondo della comunicazione, che è vicina ormai alla cognizione. L’attenzione dello spet...

ASN: Reinventing Social Networks

New York-based Ken Jordan is one the ASN authors (together with Jan Hauser and Steven Foster). Ken is a pioneer of Web-based multimedia. [...] In arts and theory circles he is known for Multimedia: From Wagner to Virtual Reality, an anthology (co-edited with Randall Packer) that traces the secret history of digital multimedia. With Ken Jordan I discussed the call for trust and the question of sustainable social networks. Is the Internet consensus culture cure or disease? Instead of merely posing...

The Rise of Media Philosophy

Lately, in German speaking countries a “media philosophy” debate has unfolded. [...] At least, the antagonists have so far failed to make clear what the controversy over this concept is all about - presuming there is one. From the outside it looks a failed cockfight over non-existing institutional arrangements, in a time of rising student numbers and shrinking education budgets. Like all academic disciplines, philosophy is also confronted with the rise of the computer. This has been the case for...

Estetica delle catastrofi

E’ importante chiedersi che cosa diventino le arti, arti quali ‘altra natura’ e, con un impulso ancestrale, arti frutto di processi intuitivi e produttivi dell’arte–tekhne. Che cosa diventino, non solo per effetto e insieme a quanto sta producendo l’era dell’informazione, ma anche per processi di fondo, dall’esplosione demografica alle modifiche dell’ecosistema. La sensibilità umana da una parte e, dall’altra, un sistema caotico; un dis–equilibrio fra un richiamo all’estetica delle origini, l’ai...

An interview with Lev Manovich in Malmö

I think that basically what I’m saying is this, that you have two traditions in the history of using the computer to create art and moving images. On the one hand you have this traditional algorithmic tradition, with people like James and John Whitney who made beautiful, abstract algorithmic films, and today this tradition continues with lots of Flash art. Then we have this other tradition which begins in the seventies and really picks up in the eighties, with software that allows you to manipul...

Michael Hardt: New Forms of Power

The book proposes two concepts, empire as a form of power, and multitude names both the subject that is exploited by empire, that is controlled by empire, the subject whose labor and activity supports empire, but it also is the subject that has the potential to create an alternative society. Now, it seems to me that the concept of multitude in our book is used in at least two ways – that itself constitutes one of contradictions in our book. In certain ways it's a very self-contradictory book, wh...
