On 1st of November we will start the preparation phase of TACTICAL TOPICS – TOPICAL TACTICS
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?
The research project Transforming Freedom invites an artist, writer or curator for a residency stay in Vienna in October 2010.
Our range of research in Digital Arts & Cultures can be visited at transformingfreedom.org.
Some of our current research in artistic practises is revolving around the question of how the historic, transcontinental and intermedial strategies of the Fluxus tradition are substituted, newly empowered or modified by techniques of online collaboration. In this context, research into the strategies of young media artists in a globalized and increasingly technically colonized online media environment are also projected.More Information
