It concerns practices that employ networking technologies as a means of critically reflecting on contemporary societies. Featuring an international group of scholars, critics, and artists, this virtual symposium maps the clashes and exchanges of cultures, uncovering the historical and material currents that jostle below user-friendly interfaces. Articulating changing modes of perception, representation, and identification, the forum will develop new possibilities for artistic and critical intervention. ~moderator~ JORDAN CRANDALL, founding editor of Blast and director of the X Art Foundation, New York ~hosts~ CARLOS BASUALDO, poet and curator based in New York, senior editor of TRANS>arts.cultures.media and regular contributor to Artforum ANDREAS BROECKMANN, project manager and researcher at V2_Organisation Rotterdam and coordinator of the V2_East/Syndicate network initiative, which facilitates media art-related exchange and co-operation across Europe BRIAN HOLMES, cultural critic and translator living in Paris, English editor for the theoretical publications of Documenta X, including _Documenta X Ã¶ The Book_ EVE ANDRÆ?E LARAMÆ?E, Professor of Sculpture at Sarah Lawrence College, currently developing a project for the List Center at MIT on an alternate history of digital culture OLU OGUIBE, Chair in African Art at University of South Florida; Convenor of the 2nd Johannesburg Biennale conference; co-editor of Nka: Journal of Contemporary African Art GREGORY ULMER, Professor of English and Media Studies at University of Florida; books include _Heuristics: The Logic of Invention_ and _Teletheory: Grammatology in the Age of Video._ ~with~ ALEXANNE DON and ALAN SONDHEIM, lecturer and theorist living in Japan, researching emailing lists and online communities ~invited guests~ [Feb 2-8] OKWUI ENWEZOR, critic, curator, Artistic Director of the 2nd Johannesburg Biennale, founding editor of Nka: Journal of Contemporary African Art LEV MANOVICH, artist and theorist, currently writing _The Engineering of Vision from Constructivism to Computer,_ a history of the social and cultural origins of computer technologies [Feb 9-15] N.
