|[Nettime-nl] workshop collective memories by C A L C and On Line|
beste, graag had ik volgende workshop aangekondigd : we are pleased to invite you for a variable-sessions international-oriented workshop around 'geografica affettiva and the mapping of memories' organised by On Line and C A L C. when between the 25th and 30th of april. // where the workshop takes place at On Line - Spijkstraat 1 B9000 Gent firstname.lastname@example.org. // what with this workshop we aim to question the importance and relations between personal and collective memories. using the systems in development of Geagrafica Affettiva ( a digital communications-tracing / data-gathering memoryboard ) and On Line ( a system for personal and collective archivation and exploration ) and with the help of some highly qualified international lecturers and attendants we will have a close theoretical and pragmatical dissection of the ethics, uses, copyright-problematics and experimental subjective interfaces for creating and using a system for gathering a personal and collective past present future. all possibly related parties - artists, curators, writers, developpers, sociologists, librarians, ... - are welcome to join this meeting. the participants will be split in different groups depending on the days they can be participate. small guest-lectures will be given by some of the participating international artists and writers. // about after previous installments in the fondazione pistoletto and bureau des compétences, geanet lands in belgium for its final installment. looking at geografia affettiva with this platonic spatial view and playing conceptual with its telematic feasibilities and On Line with its huge amount of tracing data provokes some interesting questions and possibilities. how can we remember something if this something is absent? if we look at Socrates with his board of wax -a gift from Mnemosyne, the mother of all muses-, in which memories can imprint themselves like from a signet ring. whatever leaves an impression can be remembered until this impression is fading and oblivion initiates. so we ask ourselves: do we have collective wax boards? do we need them? is our memory getting ³better² because we can outsource it into an artificial kind of screen-brain which doesn¹t fade out? or should on the contrary a system like that also have a facility to forget? and first of all; what shall that be: a collective memory? if memory is the mother of all muses and an individual memory only can be formed via social interaction, then what happens if this interaction can be mapped and contexts be seen as a net cartography of these interactions? do our relations change and does our identity? what happens to what we call past and presence? and does the system help to project the future? check > www. geografiaffettiva.net for more detailed info and pictures. // traces the answers / results will be left as a kind of installation of spatial memory that will be visible at several locations - Time Festival, Richard Foncke Gallery, ... the synthesis of the workshop will be written down and will be translated into a usable development-paper for all participants, interested organisations, geograficaaffettiva.net and kunstonline.info. the evolution of the workshop and possible results will be presented on the websites of On Line and C A L C and in a little publication published by On Line directly after. // admission due to the universal nature of the questions surrounding this workshop, participants of different motivation and professional experience can take part. there is no admission fee and the workshop will use English as the main language. a detailed program will be mailed as soon as people subscribe. a maximum of 20 participants each day will be allowed and accommodation will be provided for international or far-from-us participants if necessary. send your application providing - name, mail, preffered days to participate, questions you might have, ... - to email@example.com we hope to welcome you. related links > www.calcaxy.com > www.geografiaffettiva.net > www.kunstonline.info > www.calcaxy.com/calc/2004/librito.pdf > www.skype.com > www.puredata.org > www.rfgonline.be // related contacts On Line vzw Lieve Foncke - Jan Mast - Eva Booms > firstname.lastname@example.org +32 92288096 Spijkstraat 1 Belgium 9000 Gent C A L C Teresa Alonso Novo, Tomi Scheiderbauer, Malex Spiegel, Reto Stebler + l a p a n a d e r i a Rubén Alonso Mallén - Eva Morales Soler - David Cañavate Cazorla > email@example.com +34 954419305 Calle Garcie Fernandez 20 Spain 41008 Sevilla // ______________________________________________________ * Verspreid via nettime-nl.
