Always Evolving, Historically Rooted — Rhizome Needs Your Support


Still frame from Cory Arcangel, Various Self Playing Bowling Games (2011), as featured in Cory Arcangel: Pro Tools, curated by Christiane Paul for the Whitney Museum of American Art.

Rhizome puts the future of new media art in dialogue with its past — support the conversation, donate today.

Rhizome has been online since 1996 and I have been lucky enough to witness its growth from an informal email list to the organization it is today.

What I appreciate about Rhizome is that even as it continues to evolve and reinvent itself year after year, seeking out emerging ideas, artists, and areas of practice, it remains firmly rooted in a historical context. This can be seen not only in its pioneering work in the field of digital preservation, but also in programming and writing that finds contemporary relevance in media archives and brings different generations into dialogue.

Rhizome is a vital link between the past, present, and future of art and technology.

Support them, as I do. Give today.

— Christiane Paul, curator and scholar

The Assignment Book
A project by LUIS CAMNITZER

Curated by Christiane Paul and Trebor Scholz
Digital Media Coordinator: Christine Zenyi Lu

Wednesday, September 21, through Sunday, October 16, 2011

66 Fifth Avenue at 13th Street, NY, NY

"In The Assignment Book I am trying to bridge the distance between artist and viewer, and start a dialogue and collective research instead of merely communicating by way of a monologue. I would like to share unresolved and sometimes ridiculous conundrums and questions that hopefully lead to critical inter- and multidisciplinary thinking, and unleash similar but collectively generated stimuli. Not unlike the blog
format, answers and suggestions should enter the exhibition space so
that the stage is shared with the visitors, leading to deinsitutionalized learning: Learning Without a School. In this I abandon the traditional declarative stance of the artist/teacher. Being accountable for how I deal with the assignments I become an unprotected artist/learner."
- Luis Camnitzer

The Assignment Book is organized as part of the Mobility Shifts International Future of Learning Summit (The New School, October 10-16,2011).

Call for Submissions - Ghana Think Tank: What’s Wrong with Digital Education?


Deadline:
Sat Aug 20, 2011 12:00

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

What’s Wrong with Digital Education?
Ghana ThinkTank has the Solutions!
 
On occasion of the MobilityShifts conference (http://www.mobilityshifts.org), Ghana ThinkTank (http://www.ghanathinktank.org) Needs Your Problems
It starts with you. We need /your/ problems, so that our international network of think tanks can solve them.
What’s wrong with digital education? What’s special about digital education? What are its challenges? What are new pedagogic approaches for learning with mobile platforms? What are the limitations of the “digital literacies” paradigm and its first world/third world assumptions?...
Email ghanathinktank at gmail.com.
 
The Ghana ThinkTank: Developing the First World.
Founded in 2006, Ghana ThinkTank is a worldwide network of think tanks creating strategies to resolve problems in the "developed" world. The network began with think tanks from Ghana, Cuba and El Salvador, and has since expanded to include Serbia, Mexico and Iran. Our think tanks analyze problems and propose solutions, which we put into action back in the community where the problems originated – whether those solutions seem impractical or brilliant.
 
For the New School’s conference MobilityShifts on Digital Learning
(Oct. 10-16, 2011), Ghana ThinkTank has been hired by the Vera List Center for Art and Politics to solve the problems posed by the conference.

 
We request your participation in identifying these problems.
 
MobilityShifts is an international conference on digital learning, exploring digital fluencies in a mobile world and DIY learning, with a special emphasis on digital learning projects worldwide. The summit is part of The New School’s Politics of Digital Culture conference series, and builds on two previous events, The Drumbeat Festival in Barcelona (2010) and Digital Media and Learning (2011) in Los Angeles.

CLICKISTAN BY UBERMORGEN.COM -- A Game To Benefit The Whitney's Annual Fund


Dates:
Sun Dec 05, 2010 00:00 - Sun Dec 05, 2010

CLICKISTAN
AN ONLINE GAME BY UBERMORGEN.COM

TO BENEFIT THE WHITNEY’S ANNUAL FUND


For a limited time, you can support the Annual Fund by playing CLICKISTAN at
http://www.whitney.org/Clickistan

Enjoy a few levels before making a $1 donation. Continue playing and choose whether you want to give more. Give more and replay.

CLICKISTAN by the artist team UBERMORGEN.COM (lizvlx and Hans Bernhard) is a work of game art and an homage to the net art of the mid-90s: it invents its own territory -- ruled by the click -- and celebrates the pixel in imaginative variations. Transparent pixels are blown out of proportion in order to create graphic shapes and abstractions, while copied-and-pasted scripts are resampled and recombined in order to -- in UBERMORGEN.COM's words -- use as many pre-existing pixels and produce as few originals as possible.

CLICKISTAN is a territory that lies somewhere at the core of Ubermorgen's work: a game that plays with art and commerce, celebrates the early days of net art and computer games, has an anarchic sense of humor, and only delivers the expected when it is time to pay.

The CLICKISTAN soundtrack is inspired by early computer games, and is supplied by the 8-bit music website http://micromusic.net

Clickistan resides between the 7th and 8th bit of every byte

it is ruled by generosity and playful curiosity

its inhabitants are honest and filled with life

they had been living poorly in an analog diaspora for many years

they took some of their remains with them back home to CLICKISTAN.
