Call for papers: “Places and Spaces”
Extended Deadline: 31 August 2012
Digicult is inviting proposals for the first issue of the new Digimag Journal, especially from individuals active in the fields of digital art, design and culture: curators, critics, hackers, fabbers, creative producers, lab managers, activists, designers, theorists, independent and academic writers, scholars, artists, etc.
The birth, growth and development of spaces open to the creative and experimental use of Media and Digital technologies have affected the production and dissemination of contents, have enriched the art system and its boundaries, have provided new methodologies of production, modes of art display and creative practices (and the daily work of individuals engaged in the field).
These groundbreaking practices span visual art and design, science and technology innovation, social studies and politics, ecology and economy, music and architecture. The context where they take place is hybrid: hacklabs and bureau of research; mailing lists; virtual and physical exhibition spaces; media centers and museums.
This call for contributions wishes to assess these emergent places of innovations and this rich proliferation of research, critical thinking and radical praxis based on horizontal cooperation, by addressing the history, present and future, of projects developed to contribute, support, search, create and spread creativity and innovation using Media and digital technologies.
