Future Fluxus – Symposium
Invited academics and artists include Fluxus expert Petra Stegmann (de), Raivo Kelomees (ee) as well as several protagonists from the Viennese Fluxus and Actionists´scenes.
The subject will celebrate the “50th anniversary” of Fluxus looking at artistic practises today, how they are transformed, made obsolete or democratized by the rise of collaboration over the internet. Is the Fluxus movement still alive? What criteria should we use to answer that question? What are the distinctive differences to art movements like the Viennese Actionism or French Situationism?What are artistic or political implications of the “12 Ideas of Fluxus” (s.b.)? Should they be adapted in the 21st century? And how? What similarities in methods and goals can be found in online Communities of the Free and Open Source Movements, or digital rights activists like the Electronic Frontier Foundation?

Andreja Kuluncic´s work „image of the ‘other’ by andreja kuluncic“ representing by Jerica Ziherl and Djanino Bozic
The new project by Andreja Kuluncic is the result of a year-long research on the topic of social distance, with a focus on the formats of occurrence and construction of the image of the ‘others’, i.e. marginal social groups, in the local mass media.
The initial part of this complex project involved several stages: research, sociological survey, discussions and collaborations with experts in social and humanistic sciences. Now, at its final stage, the project continues with a set of direct actions that further explore ways in which it is possible to raise the sense of responsibility of the media as well as reshape the perception of both those who produce and those who read, watch or listen the media-generated content.
