The New Administration of a Fine Arts Education is a conversation series with leading individuals in contemporary art, culture and education who engage in multiple and overlapping artistic and pedagogic practices. Their exhibitions, actions, writing and artworks are at times seamless integrations of cultural production, lifestyle, studio and teaching. Some of them operate from inside or in coordination with art education institutions, challenging tradition from within. Others combine education and creative economic strategies to sustain practices in the realm of contemporary art and beyond and to realize new institutions. In all cases they are dismantling, intentionally or not, rigid definitions of what it means to be an artist, curator and educator today.

The plenary session will be focused upon the theme of "Transformative Play" and will explore the following questions: What core socio-technical practices are shaping (or have the potential to shape) the communities, institutions, and connected ecologies in which we learn? In particular, how might we consider the varied dimensions of digital media in relation to hacking, modding, and user innovation? We will also have a book exhibit and technology demos.

Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) was a non-profit and tax-exempt organization established to develop collaborations between artists and engineers. The group operated by facilitating person-to-person contacts between artists and engineers, rather than defining a formal process for cooperation. (..) It was officially launched in 1967 by the engineers Billy Klüver and Fred Waldhauer and the artists Robert Rauschenberg and Robert Whitman. (..) The performances were held in New York City's 69th Regiment Armory, on Lexington Avenue between 25th and 26th Streets as an homage to the original and historical 1913 Armory show.23 Such collaborations continued to break down barriers between the arts and scientists in the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s, and indirectly launched and supported the experimental sound artist John Cage, dancer Merce Cunningham, and pop artist Andy Warhol.

Media Theory on the Move: Transatlantic Perspectives on Media and Mediation

A Conference Report by Inge Ploum

On May 21 2009, 15 media theorists and philosophers from Germany, Hungary, the United States and Canada gathered in Potsdam’s Am Neuen Palais (Germany) for an international conference on different perspectives, approaches and traditions in media theory. Media Theory on the Move was organized by Dieter Mersch, chairman of Media Studies at the University of Potsdam, his colleagues at EMW (Europäische Medienwissenschaft Department of the University of Potsdam), and four esteemed MA students, sponsored the Fritz Thyssen Stiftung für Wissenschaftförderung.

For three days (program), a divers array of media scientists, theorists and philosophers had the pleasure of discussing their perspectives on media and mediation. Though the presentation titles ranged widely, from Joachim Paech’s ‘Popular Fiction, Popular Art and New Media: On the Way to Medienwissenschaft in 1970’s Germany’ to Peter Bexte’s ‘Prepositions and Things: Some Reflections on Relations’, the theme of movement continued to be the Ariadne’s thread throughout the conference. The constant motion of space and time surrounding our media landscape, coupled with our movements of thought on understanding media (ourselves and the world), turned out to be a challenging theme for discussion. It generated a heterogeneous debate including topics on the movements of interactivity, images, things, the symbolic, communication, time and contingency. In a challenging exploration of the problems floating through transatlantic media theory, philosophy and practice, ‘Media Theory on the Move’ prompted a creative and critical space-time to further develop discussions on the movement of movement.
