VJ-BOOK.COM Launched

IT'S OFFICIAL. VJ-BOOK is one of the first books to be published on VJ culture, and potentially the first to theorize VJing in a way that breaks down the practice and reception of live visuals in a systematic, structured way.

VJ-BOOK: Jockeying and Post-Cinema (tentative title) begins its inquiry where Godard and Peter Greenaway leave theirs in proclaiming that ‘cinema is dead.' The cinematic language is a rich, engrossing one that remains unexplored in traditional Hollywood-style narratives. Contemporary VJs (video-jockeys) are the first group in the 21st century to seriously engage and question the potentials and limitations of the cinematic medium in a wide variety of formats and contexts.

"I know new media art when I see it."
The Art of Participation: Collaborative Mapping

A lecture by Dr. Judith Rodenbeck and Trebor Scholz

Museum curators often frame new media art in modernist terms that attempt to provide easy and familiar rules for institutional inclusion or exclusion. Yet while many emerging participatory mapping projects can be experienced at art festivals such as Transmediale, ISEA, and Ars Electronica, when it comes to more traditional art institutions their validity as art is often questioned. Emerging art needs new venues and old venues need a new definition of art.

1st Bachelors' Prize for Net-Literature

Literaturhaus Stuttgart: Call for submissions
1st Bachelors' Prize for Net-Literature

What characterizes net-literature? The fact that it has to do with
computers linked to the net and that it can't simply be transferred
one-to-one onto paper, of course. And so "net" is the most significant,
primary element of the compound.

So far what has not been at the center of focus is the actual writing
apparatus, the computer itself, the universal machine, and if one is to
believe Dieter Daniels, a bachelors' machine. Marcel Duchamp, inventor
of the "Machine Celibataire" defined it in the succinct and cogent
phrase "short-circuit on desire".

The 1st Bachelors' Prize for Net-Literature is aimed at making the
sterile bachelors' machine fertile and is calling for entries in a
productive net-literature competition. In accordance with the nature of
the venture, participation is restricted to men.

Contributions must be submitted by September 30, 2005 via the competition website
