Digit Media Festival call

categories:

I've been involved with this for a couple of years. It started out as a a film festival but I've been pushing to turn it into a new media festival. For the film festival you have to send in your video with a 25 dollar fee. There's also a call for new media proposals which is free. The cool events will be at the Roebling Bridge for sound art and Bethel Woods Art Center (the old woodstock hippie site). we're calling this Podstock.

Sound Art is everywhere these days. Peter Sinclair and his experimental soundlab Locus Sonus have a video up on the web called Audio Geo.

The4thScreen - Call for Work

categories:

The4thScreen: a global fest of art & innovation for mobile phones focuses on the emerging cultural, technological and social phenomenon of mobile phones.

http://www.thefourthscreen.com/

"We are at the moment when everybody, from the media moguls to Vietnamese peasants - artists, hackers, activists, businesses and governments are trying to grasp the impact, the power, of this new phenomenon.... trying to claim a part of it. There is still a lot of space for great ideas, to fulfill dreams and real needs. I hope the Festival will serve as a catalyst and influence this process... "

Net Community Hacks Cultural Funding System

Vienna, 2 May 2006

“Our much-discussed, game-theory-oriented approach to cultural funding represents a clear rejection of all the Austrian cultural industry’s hegemonic tendencies,” states MANA coordinator Stefan Lutschinger: “This hack of the outmoded jury and committee system opposes every rationalistic funding cut with pure difference, contingency coping and the fruitful development of paradox.”


European Cultural Policies 2015

European Cultural Policies 2015: A Report with Scenarios on the Future of Public Funding for Contemporary Art in Europe

A collaboration between Iaspis, eipcp and åbäke

http://www.eipcp.net/

From the introduction:

In 2015 art is almost completely instrumentalised in the economic sense, regardless of whether financing is private or public. Art then services either national or European interests that wish to construct a certain identity: it is a desirable marketable commercial good for private ownership and it contributes to regional development and provides society with new creative employment opportunities.


Hello from poster!

Hi, I'm poster. I'll be posting announcements and other unattached things here from now on so murphy can concentrate on his own work. If you want something posted send an email to post@thing.net and I'll think about it. If you want to send me spam, bring it on, I love it. I'm an intern so I'll put up with anything.

Love,

poster
