Performing Home: Art, Activism and Affections


Performing Home: Art, Activism and Affections | By Esther Belvis Pon
http://www.furtherfield.org/features/articles/performing-home-art-activism-and-affections

Esther Belvis Pon's new article focuses on the rising interest of public space; demonstrations, camps, collaborative projects, artistic interventions, community projects, social activism. Pons explores just a few names that exemplify the different forms of engagement that deal with the complexities of this radically emergent culture, and discusses its legacy that is already dismantling certain assumed thoughts about ‘the public’.

Esther Belvis Pons is a researcher-artist and educator that has worked with experimental theatre companies around Europe. She holds a PhD in Theatre and Performance Studies by the University of Warwick and the Autonomous University of Barcelona. Her main interests include audience participation and mediatized performance, collaborative methods of research and transductive pedagogies. She collaborates with different journals as a writer and she is co-editor of Efímera, a biannual journal specialized in Live Art in Latin America and Spain.

Rob Myers reviews 'Post-Digital Print' by Alessandro Ludovico


Rob Myers reviews Alessandro Ludovico's book 'Post-Digital Print– The Mutation of Publishing Since 1894'.
http://www.furtherfield.org/features/reviews/post-digital-print

It tracks the many deaths of print media and its long history of surviving against the odds in order to show how it can survive the Internet as a vital part of our shared culture.

Independent bookshops, large bookshop chains, newspapers and magazines are having to compete with Internet-based publishing or be wiped out. It's not clear whether physical print publishing believes it can survive this encounter with the digital. Ludovico explains how it can and why it is important that it should.

Alessandro Ludovico is the editor and publisher of Neural, a magazine for critical digital culture and media arts.
