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
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.
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 email@example.com 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.
Congratulations are in order for Matthew Coolidge, director of the Center for Land Use Interpretation (CLUI) and winner of the 2006 SAAM Lucelia Artist Award. The Center is a bold choice, if only for the obvious fact that an institution is a tricky pick for an artist award. But that’s what makes Coolidge’s organization such a compelling project—CLUI straddles the borders distinguishing artist and collective, observer and activist, micro and macro.

Vanity Search creates an instant web collage using search engines doing a vanity search on the name G.H. Hovagimyan. One might call this Neo-Fluxus information art. The interesting part is that the piece changes as more information is added to the web. This is a very fragile piece. It depends on all the search engines now in existence to continue to function. In the world of corporate communications cut-throat competition this is highly unlikely. this piece deals with information entropy. I liken this to Robert Smithson's famous musings, in his 1968 essay, "A Sedimentation of the Mind." How many search engines will be in existence in 10 years? Will the web become censored like in China or "privatized" and made the domain of commercial culture only? The fluidity of information has an ebb and flow like a tide washing away a shoreline.

Sure, I know you have all been wondering what was tying together Olia Lialina's latest works with Dragan Espenschied, you have all been waiting for an assessment and an explanation.
I've just spent the last 4 days upgrading my homepage: G.H. Hovagimyan homepage updated April 1, 2006, http://nujus.net/gh
People have been asking me to put up my HD morphs online. I've resisted doing that because they are high definition video and should be seen in person. They are at Sara Tecchia's gallery in New York, 529 West 20th Street. http://saratecchia.com/artists/gh_hovagimyan/
