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.

Back in the early 1990s I was an advisor to a student named Joe Smith. Joe was a refugee from the Drama program at Syracuse University. I took him into Art Video and helped him get a “Special Studies” (self-designed) BFA degree. I introduced him to Vito Acconci’s video performance works and Joe couldn’t stop doing Acconci parodies. He did the best Acconci impersonations. Years later I frequently see Joe on TV playing the ‘cheese scientist’ in a Cheez-It advertising campaign. These ads have been running for years. Every time I see Joe rejecting a block of cheese for not being mature enough I think of his obsessive infatuation with Vito Acconci. And now that Vito is gone, these ads resonate with a different tone.

CFP: International Conference THE LEFT CONFERENCE – PHOTOGRAPHY AND FILM CRITICISM | Deadline: July 21st, 2017 - LISBON Org: Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas (UNL/FCSH) & Centre for research in Communication, Information and Digital Culture /FCSH (CIC.Digital / FCSH) & Communication and Language Research Centre / FCSH (CECL / FCSH) & Institute of Contemporary History / FCSH (IHC / FCSH) & Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Lisbon (BELAS-ARTES ULISBOA) & National Museum of Contemporary Art – Museu do chiado, Lisbon Since the late nineteenth century, the printed photograph in the media stood as a powerful tool for denouncing social injustice and claiming better life conditions – i.e. as seen in the work of Jacob Riis, Lewis Hine, or Joshua Benoliel, among many others. In the early decades of the twentieth century the use of images had a significant boost with film, when directors such as Flaherty, Eisenstein, John Grierson, Vertov, Dvorjenko or Ivens, combining documental intentions with avant-garde experimental claims, made possible to discuss political and historical conditions. The aim of the conference is to discuss and debate photographs and film as a social tool from a leftist stance. In particular, to examine and explore the relation of documentary practices and political commitment in different historical circumstances throughout the twentieth and the twenty first centuries. The seminar/conference together with a film projection program will take place at Contemporary Art Museum of Chiado in Lisbon on November 16-18 2017. We invite paper submission of no more than 500 words abstract that focuses on photography and film related to: • the creation of documentary as a social and political weapon; • the soviet revolution as an experimental wave in photography, design and film; • anticolonial and postcolonial imagery; • women rights and feminist imagery; • avant gardes and ideology claims; • the role of images in the leftist movements; • Contemporary art practices and social and political criticism; • Alan Sekula legacy and the political commitment with images.

Reflecting on Maureen Forrester's warm welcome of the Media Arts Section and Integrated Media grant program at the Canada Council for the Arts in April 1983. This was Maureen's first year as "Chairman" of the Council. She was a fantastic, world-renowned operatic contralto and she understood and championed the contributions of artists to society, including my design and founding of a media arts division that supported artists working in new media before 'new media' (computer-integrated media) were identifiable.

Liam C. Young's great book on cultural techniques of lists and listing is now out in the Recursions-series. 'Lists stretch across cultures and epochs, doing work both administrative and poetic, absorbing every conceivable thing - from virtues to vegetables, ingredients to illnesses - into their capacious form. In richly indexing the list's operation across time and space and media, Young demonstrates how this humble discursive structure has profoundly shaped our sense of what composes and orders our world, of what matters.' - Shannon Mattern, Associate Professor of Media Studies, The New School, New York
