ADA welcomes Scholars!

The Archive of Digital Art expands its field and includes scholars in its documentation. Scholars are invited to become members of the online community and set up their own ADA entry!

Scholars have the possibility to upload publications and text pdfs, announce upcoming events, post comments, document exhibitions, conferences and other relevant events and be represented in the Archive.

The community features also allow the active exchange of professional information with peers and the new “Light box” tool facilitates the examination and comparison of images for research and teaching.

To ensure a high academic standard 5 published articles and/or curated exhibitions are requisite for scholars to become members of the ADA community. Interested scholars may apply for an account here.

A new level of institutional empathy for Art&Science in Moscow 🙂 We are launching Art&Science course on theory and practice in this field including curatorial and artistic strategies at the Department of Culture of Moscow City (it's governmental organisation). It's open for everyone, bug intended to be special qualification course for teachers and trainers on art history in local schools and universities. That gives responsibility and belief that much more understanding and possibilities will be available for the next generations. So happy to curate it and happy to share 🙃🙏

The 7th International Conference on the Histories of Media Art, Science and Technology KREMS|GÖTTWEIG|VIENNA, Austria November 23 - 25, 2017 ** Early Bird Registration now open ** The 7th International Conference on the Histories of Media Art, Science and Technology - RE:TRACE - will be hosted by the Department for Image Science and held jointly at Danube University, Göttweig Abbey and the Austrian Academy of Sciences, Vienna. Following Banff 2005, Berlin 2007, Melbourne 2009, Liverpool 2011, Riga 2013 and Montreal 2015, the Media Art History Boards and Co-Chairs invite you to attend Re:Trace 2017 in Krems/Göttweig/Vienna. More than a decade after the first conference founded the field, which is now recognized internationally as a significant historical inquiry at the intersection of art, science, and technology, Media Art Histories is now firmly established as a dynamic area of interdisciplinary study guided by changing media and research priorities, drawing a growing community of scholars, artists and artist-researchers. Immersed in both contemporary and historiographical aspects of the digital world, we explore the most immediate socio-cultural questions of our time: from body futures, information society, and media (r)evolutions, to environmental interference, financial virtualization, and surveillance. And we do so through a fractal lens of inter- and trans-disciplinarity, bridging art history, media studies, neuroscience, psychology, sociology, and beyond. MediaArtHistories is a field whose theory, methods, and objects of study interweave with and overlay other disciplines. **KEYNOTES:* * o Prof. Ryszard KLUSZCZYNSKI (University of Lodz, PL) o Prof. Wendy Hui CHUN (Brown University, US) o Prof. Em.
