<nettime-ann> ISEA2011 - LEA Special Issue: The Future is Now

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are happy to announce that the presented papers of ISEA2011
Istanbul pre-symposium event The Future Is Now: Media Arts,
Performance and Identity after Nam June Paik will be collected in a
special issue of LEA.
The Future Is Now: Media Arts, Performance and Identity after Nam June
Paik is made possible by a collaboration between Tate Liverpool and
FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology). The Future is Now
will take place on 18 February 2011 at FACT, Liverpool. The event will
see the participation of artists and theorists who will engage in a
fruitful discussion on Paik’s work.
In an era that has seen the perpetual rise of reality television,
alongside that of the web, The Future is Now will examine the legacy
of Paik’s thinking and practice with a focus on performance and
identity, situated within current debates around new technologies,
ubiquity and human experience. Through innovative web adventures and
conversations chaired by Will Gompertz, Arts Editor at the BBC and
previously Director of Tate Media, speakers and performers including
collaborators of Paik, contemporary artists and theorists, consider
how artists are constrained or liberated by a constant re-imagining of
the future. Participants include Roy Ascott, Jeremy Bailey, Ruth
Catlow, John Hanhardt, Kristin Lucas and Marisa Olson.
Tickets to the event can be purchased at the following link:
