Deadline: August 31st, 2015
From their call: The New Media Caucus is programming a session for the ARTspace Media Lounge entitled Intersections: Cinema, Performance, Networked Media, and Politics, under the theme of VISIBLE/INVISIBLE at CAA 2016 in Washington, DC. No entry fee.
Theme: This year’s theme, VISIBLE/INVISIBLE explores the legacy of identity and representation politics, considered in the context of our present culture where individuals, organizations and ideas can be easily captured, tracked, exposed, appropriated from the circulation of digital material which simultaneously feeds capitalist media assembly lines and alternative economies. Through Media Lounge programming we aim to foster a dialog centered on emerging artistic sensibilities that mix art and a politics of representation amid a transforming sociopolitical landscape.
Session: This two hour session will include 6-8 artists presenting work to help build a multi-threaded conversation that encourages interaction between the presenters and attendees. No written papers will be read. We expect the participants to briefly show/present the work and ideas related to the theme and to participate in the ensuing discussions.
This panel will consider the impact that networked media, interactivity, and digital culture have had on cinema and performance. In particular, recent historical examples demonstrate that new uses of technology facilitate political communication, organization, resistance, protest, overthrow, etc. We seek new media artists, performers, filmmakers and documentarians to present work that engages, explores or responds to this context.
All media will be considered, but we are particularly interested in new media works that engage performative and cinematic conventions in new ways. Works must be able to be presented digitally or performed at CAA 2016 in Washington DC. Preference given to the following forms: new media, digital art, queer art, feminist art, activist based art, performance art and digital nonfiction.
