Subject: ICONIC TURN - BILDWISSENSCHAFTEN

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Call for Papers
Iconic Turn – Bildwissenschaften
München, SS 2002
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Unter dem Titel „Iconic Turn – Das neue Bild der Welt“ startet im
Sommersemester 2002 erstmals eine interdisziplinäre Vortragsreihe an der LMU
München, die sich mit dem Begriff „Bild“ als einer zentralen Kategorie aller
Natur- und Kulturwissenschaften beschäftigt. Die Reihe wird begleitet von
mehreren eintägigen Workshops im Anschluss an den jeweiligen Vortrag.

Mit dem Begriff des Iconic Turn läßt sich die zunehmende Bildhaftigkeit
gesellschaftlicher Kommunikation beschreiben, in der visuelle Medien und
Phänomene das bestimmende Ele­ment des Austausches, des Verstehens und
Wahrnehmens sind. "Turn" ist zugleich der Ausdruck für eine
wissenschaftsgeschichtliche Wende, die sich historischen Gegenständen und
Entwicklungen widmet und mit zahlreichen Erwartungen an eine
interdisziplinäre und intermediale Öffnung der Kulturwissenschaften
verbunden ist.


Zielsetzung der Workshops
Ziel der Workshops ist es, Grundprobleme einer interdisziplinären
Bildwissenschaft zu untersuchen und zu formulieren. Hierzu gehören der
Begriff des Bildes in technischer, ikonischer oder naturwissenschaftlicher
Hinsicht und seine Problematik in einer multimedialen und synästhetischen
Informationswelt. Ebenso gehört die gemeinsame Vorgeschichte
bildwissenschaftlicher Forschungen in den verschiedenen kultur- und
naturwissenschaftlichen Disziplinen dazu sowie die internationale
Vergleichbarkeit von "Bildwissenschaft" und "Visual Culture Studies" im
Hinblick auf ihre jeweiligen Aufgaben und Untersuchungsgebiete.

Die fächerübergreifende Diskussion des Begriffs „Bild“ stellt uns vor die
Frage, welche Perspektiven und Aufgaben sich daraus für die weitere
wissenschaftliche Forschung ergeben und welche neuen Ausbildungsformen sich
sinnvollerweise daraus entwickeln lassen.


Zusammensetzung der Workshops
Die Workshops setzen sich aus einem über das Semester kontinuierlich
arbeitenden Kreis von ca. 20 Teilnehmern (Doktoranden, Postdocs etc.)
verschiedener wissenschaftlicher Bereiche zusammen. Sie werden zumeist am
Tag nach den Vorträgen abgehal­ten. Die Referenten und voraussichtlich auch
die Moderatoren werden bei den Workshops zugegen sein (vorauss. Prof. E.
Pöppel, N. Foster, Prof. P. Sloterdijk, Prof. S. Sontag, Prof. H. Bredekamp,
Prof. H. Belting).

Die Teilnehmer sollen aus unterschiedlichen Fachbereichen aus den Bereichen
der Geistes- und Naturwissenschaften kommen. Junge Wissenschaftler
(Graduierte, Postgraduierte), die u.U. von den jeweiligen Institutsleitern
bzw. Professoren vorgeschlagen werden können (ca. 12 Pers.), sind gefragt.
Es werden auch Personen aus der Wirtschaft hinzugezogen (ca. 3). 2-3 Plätze
werden rotierend mit jeweiligen Fachleuten besetzt.
Die Workshops werden vom Rektor der LMU zertifiziert.


Termine
Die Workshops sind eintägige Blockseminare (am Tag nach dem jeweiligen
Vortrag): 10 c.t. – 13, 14 c.t. – 16,
die in den Räumlichkeiten der lothringer13, Ort für aktuelle Kunst und neue
Medien, stattfinden.
Mitte April findet eine vorbereitende Sitzung statt.
Exakte Termine werden noch bekanntgegeben.

Bewerbungen für die Workshopteilnahme:
Wichtige Voraussetzung für die Bewerbung ist die kontinuierliche Teilnahme
an den Vorträ­gen und Workshops (inklusive eines vorbereitenden Treffens)
und die Bereitschaft zur Vor­bereitung (i. S. eines Arbeitspapiers),
Durchführung und Nachbereitung eines Workshops.

Interessenten für die Teilnahme an den Workshops können sich mit ihrem
Lebenslauf, aus dem ihre Studien- und Forschungsschwerpunkte sowie
außeruniversitäre Interessen hervor­gehen, bewerben. Zudem sollten sie auf
einer DIN A 4 Seite darlegen, warum das Thema „Bildwissenschaften“ für sie
und ihren Forschungsbereich von Interesse ist. Die Unterlagen müssen bis
25.03.2002 gerichtet werden an:

Iconic Turn, Burda Akademie zum Dritten Jahrtausend

Beyond Webcams
An Introduction to Online Robots
edited by Ken Goldberg and Roland Siegwart

Remote-controlled robots were first developed in the 1940s to handle 
radioactive materials. Trained experts now use them to explore deep in sea 
and space, to defuse bombs, and to clean up hazardous spills. Today robots 
can be controlled by anyone on the Internet. Such robots include cameras that 
not only allow us to look, but also go beyond Webcams: they enable us to 
control the telerobots' movements and actions.

This book summarizes the state of the art in Internet telerobots. It includes 
robots that navigate undersea, drive on Mars, visit museums, float in blimps, 
handle protein crystals, paint pictures, and hold human hands. The book 
describes eighteen systems, showing how they were designed, how they function 
online, and the engineering challenges they meet.

Ken Goldberg is Associate Professor of Industrial Engineering and Operations 
Research and of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University 
of California, Berkeley. He is the editor of The Robot in the Garden (MIT 
Press, 2000). Roland Siegwart is Professor at the Swiss Federal Institute of 
Technology in Lausanne.

Subject:   _Living With Cyberspace: Technology & Society in the 21st Centu ry_.


Hi all
A blatant bit of pre-publication marketing:

The text below is almost certainly the final back cover blurb for a book
Joanne Roberts and I have just finished editing entitled:

 _Living With Cyberspace: Technology & Society in the 21st Century_. 

The book is aimed at 2/3rd year undergraduates in the USA, UK and Australia
mainly. 

The rest of the blurb is, I hope, self-explanatory.

I have placed the ISBN's and UK price below. 

The book is due out in August this year -- it is already in the production
process so it may be published earlier.

Joanne and I would be grateful if folks would spread the word a little
about the book across other e-lists etc.

Additionally, we are keen to hear from anyone connected with  relevant
editorial boards/journals etc.. We would like to get the book reviewed here
and there. If anyone wants to send Joanne or myself their email/or the
address of the journal, we will pass it on to our senior editor at Continuum
and try to get a review copy sent to you.

Best wishes

John & Joanne

 LIVING WITH CYBERSPACE: TECHNOLOGY & SOCIETY IN THE 21ST CENTURY
 Edited by John Armitage & Joanne Roberts

 Cyberspace and cybertechnology have impacted on every aspect of our lives.
 Western society, culture, politics and economics are now all intricately
 bound with cyberspace. Living With Cyberspace brings together the leading
 cyber-theorists of North America, Britain and Australia to map the present
 and the future of cyberspace.

 Presenting a guidebook to our new world, both the theory and the practice,
 Living With Cyberspace covers subjects as diverse as androids, biotech,
 electronic commerce, the acceleration of everyday life, access to
 information, the alliance between the military and the entertainment
 industries, feminism, democratic practice and human consciousness itself.

 Together, the essays - divided into separately introduced sections on
 society, culture, politics and economics - present a systematic and
 state-of-the-art overview of technology and society in the 21st Century.

Subject: Rexroth on Twain, Lawrence & Patchen

     "There is a lot of bullshit in Lawrence, Miller, or Patchen --
     but their enemies are my enemies." (Rexroth)

Three new Rexroth essays are now online at the BPS website --

MARK TWAIN
http://www.bopsecrets.org/rexroth/essays/twain.htm

"It was the official culture which was schizophrenic, not Mark Twain. The
whole meaning of Mark Twain is that he 'saw life steadily and saw it
whole'... If Baudelaire was the greatest poet of the capitalist epoch...
Mark Twain wrote its saga, its prose Iliad and Odyssey."

POETRY, REGENERATION, AND D.H. LAWRENCE
http://www.bopsecrets.org/rexroth/essays/lawrence.htm

"Lawrence did not try to mislead himself with false promises, imaginary
guarantees... Communion and oblivion, sex and death, the mystery can be
revealed -- but it can be revealed only as totally inexplicable. Lawrence
never succumbed to the temptation to try to do more. He succeeded in what he
did do."

KENNETH PATCHEN, NATURALIST OF THE PUBLIC NIGHTMARE
http://www.bopsecrets.org/rexroth/essays/patchen.htm

"Patchen has gone back to the world of Edward Lear and interpreted it in
terms of the modern sensibility of the disengaged, the modern comic horrors
of le monde concentrationnaire. It is as if, not a slick New Yorker
correspondent, but the Owl and the Pussycat were writing up Hiroshima."

The Bureau of Public Secrets website features "The Joy of Revolution" and
other writings by Ken Knabb (recently collected in the book "Public
Secrets"); Knabb's translations from the Situationist International (the
notorious avant-garde group that helped trigger the May 1968 revolt in
France); and the Rexroth Archive (texts by and about the great writer and
social critic Kenneth Rexroth).

Subject: On Whitney's net art panel


Check out my report on the 2002 Whitney Biennial Net Art Panel 
Discussion held Friday March 8th at the New School’s Tishman 
Auditorium.  Below are excerpts from the report.

Full report available at:
http://www.thespleen.com/culture/nideaquinidealla/index.php?artID=576

Overall the discussion was well organized, the speakers were concise, 
thoughtful, even jovial and best of all no one tried to take center stage...

One commonality amongst the projects is that each one presents a neat 
package. Though they may all contain or even be composed by dynamic 
data, the visual format and representation is polished (this to my 
estimation is the curse of institutional museums that renders them 
incapable of presenting something truly experimental or innovative)...

Four of the nine projects included, Mark Napier’s Riot, Lisa Jevbratt’s 1:1, 
John Klima’s EARTH, and Benjamin Fry’s Valence, all had a similar 
undercurrent – that of learning how to paint with data. Perhaps, this is 
what Christiane means by data visualization, if so data visualization in art 
falls far short in comparison to robotics and other applied fields. 
According to such a definition of data visualization, net art merely 
emulates traditional mediums, primarily painting and illustration, only 
using data rather than paint and graphite to produce nifty visuals that may 
change in real time. Fortunately, to other artists and curators, data 
visualization contains much more potent and applied social significance...

Subject: Mix Magazine Toronto - March 2002

MIX Announces ‘Subterfuge’ for Spring. 

MIX chose the theme of ‘Subterfuge’ for its spring issue as way to 
approach the subject of art and politics. Planned in advance of 09/11, 
in light of those events the theme takes on new significance. Subterfuge 
characterized the WTC and Pentagon attacks, and subterfuge is one means 
by which art can embody the political. Articles in the issue take 
differing approaches to the topic. 

In ‘Art/Politics/Subterfuge,’ anarchist and academic, Allan Antliff, 
discusses activist artworks, connected to both anarchism and the 
anti-globalism movement, that deliver unambiguously political messages. 

Vancouver journalist Mark Fernandes gives us the 
art-and-politics-big-picture in ‘Jean Baudrillard: Radical (re) Form’, 
an article that synthesizes a number of talks he had with the French 
philosopher. 

In ‘Form as Subterfuge,’ a special MIX feature on art and politics, 
lecturer on philosophy, Jean-Ernest Loos, writer and curator, Anne-Marie 
Ninacs, artist, John Marriott, and architect, Marie-Paule MacDonald, 
give in-depth answers to the question: “How Does Form Relate to Politics 
in Contemporary Art?” 

Terence Dick writes about MIX cover artist, Shinobu Akimoto, whose 
practice of using IKEA products as they were intended and as material 
for her art, effects subterfuge on the categories of art, life. 

Additionally, Melanie O’Brian writes about ‘Promises’, the first 
curatorial gambit by Christina Ritchie, the new head curator at 
Vancouver’s Contemporary Art Gallery; and in ‘On The Rise: Independent 
Art Spaces in Asia’ Natalie De Vito reports back from a conference she 
attended in Hong Kong on Asian artist run-spaces. 

Also in the Subterfuge issue: Artist Run Culture, a 17-page portfolio on 
current shows around the country; artist projects by, Steve Reinke, 
Shawna Dempsey and Lorrie Milan, Pamila Mirthu, Andrew Harwood, and 
Oliver Hockenhull; and as always, the MIX FREE ARTIST CLASSIFIEDS! 

On newsstands March 19th.

Subject: New Screen Media Publication


New Publication:

Martin Rieser, Andrea Zapp, editors:
New Screen Media: Cinema/Art/Narrative

The British Film Institute (BFI), London/Center for Art and Media 
(ZKM) Karlsruhe, 2002

The advent of new media presents a serious challenge to our 
understanding of visual representation, of narrative and indeed the 
whole art of the moving image. New narrative forms in hypertext, 
multimedia, computer games, interactive broadcast and screen media 
are constantly redefining the relationship between the creators of 
content and their audiences, who increasingly are becoming the 
co-producers of meaning.

This publication juxtaposes the work of leading cultural theorists 
and philosophers of new media, against creative artists' attempts to 
accommodate to these vehicles of content. The book shows how 
classical narrative in many areas has been giving way to a new, more 
fragmentary culture of drama. It re-purposes the use of critical 
tools for discussing the inner design and immersive effects of the 
new media forms and its social, political and cultural contexts. 
Alongside a discussion of how these new stories relate to issues of 
identity and the body, restructured temporal and spatial models and 
interfaces, the book explores differing creative platforms such as 
the Internet, Media Installation, Interactive Broadcast, CD-ROM and 
Expanded Cinema. The artists, themselves exploring innovative 
solutions, critically examine their own practice, with a special 
focus on fiction-based forms of interaction.

The volume is presented with an accompanying DVD-ROM, featuring 
extracts from some of the groundbreaking works discussed by leading 
media theorists from Europe and the USA, including: Annika Blunck, 
Alex Butterworth, Sean Cubitt, S=F6ke Dinkla, Jon Dovey, Timothy 
Druckrey, Malcolm Le Grice, Lev Manovich, Peter Weibel, Paul Willemen 
and John Wyver.

DVD-ROM

Made in conjunction with the ZKM Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe, 
Germany, this unique addition to the book provides a rich sampler of 
interactive work and videos by which to explore the experimental 
territory, where the cinematic and digital arts are converging in new 
forms of narrative.
Such work has usually been shown in international gallery and 
conference venues, which have been inaccessible to a general 
audience. This compilation is carefully cross-referenced with the 
book to open a comprehensive overview to a wider public. The 
cross-platform DVD-ROM provides up to 4 Gigabytes of detailed 
illustration and analysis of the work of artists and interactive 
filmmakers from around the world, who are at the cutting-edge in 
creating and critiquing these new hybrid forms of interactive 
narrative.
Practitioners such as: Zoe Beloff, Michael Buckley, Luc Courchesne, 
Toni Dove, Ken Feingold, Chris Hales, Graham Harwood, George Legrady, 
Merel Mirage, Martin Rieser, Jill Scott, Bill Seaman, Jeffrey Shaw, 
Eku Wand, Grahame Weinbren and Andrea Zapp are featured. A 
representative selection of Installation forms, CD-ROM, Web, and 
Broadcast are examined in depth.

CALL FOR PAPERS:

EXPLORATIONS IN MEDIA ECOLOGY, the journal of the Media Ecology
Association, is dedicated to extending our understanding of media and media
environments.  EME publishes articles, essays, research reports, reviews,
and probes that advance and contribute to the media ecology perspective.
In addition to the study of media as they are traditionally understood,
media ecology is concerned with the examination of communication, language,
symbolic form and signification, technology and technique, information,
systems, and both humanly modified and natural environments.

EME welcomes diverse theoretical and methodological approaches to the study
of media environments, including (but not limited to) philosophical,
aesthetic, literary, historical, psychological, sociological,
anthropological, political, economic, and scientific investigations, as
well as applied, professional, and pedagogical perspectives.  EME also
publishes essays, commentary, and critical examinations relevant to media
ecology as a field of study and practice.  Above all, the journal is
committed to publishing articles of the highest intellectual quality for a
global readership.

and figures), but submissions of different lengths will be considered.

1998). Authors of accepted manuscripts must provide a final version in both
paper and electronic formats.  Authors are responsible for obtaining
