Digicult International Press Release

Sorry for any crosspostings

///Digicult International Press Release///

Born 5 years ago, the Digicult project has been able to achieve, step by step, a significant role, both nationally and internationally, in the fields of reviews and on-line publishing, having focused on digital culture and art as well as, in broader terms, the impact new technologies and modern sciences have had on art, design, culture and contemporary society.

In order to discover some more about Digicult, as well as in order to better understand its origins and its future aims, various interviews have been published on-line recently by some well-known, on-line, international cultural projects:

///the interview by Annette Wolfsfberger on the multilanguage website Lab For Culture (http://www.labforculture.org/en/resources-for-research/contents/research-in-focus/cultural-blogging-in-europe/interview-with-marco-mancuso-digicult), the networking platform which allows people to always be up to date on the subjects of art and European culture as well as to establish professional co-operation beyond any boundary.

///the interview by Ana Ascencio on the Elektra Festival Blog (http://blog.elektramontreal.ca/index.php?/archives/470-Interview-Marco-Mancuso-directeur-de-Digicult.html), one of the most important and long-lasting international festivals of electronic and audiovisual art

///the interview by Ana Carvalho on VjTheory (http://www.vjtheory.net/interviews/marco.htm) website, a cultural platform and on-line community of digital and audiovisual art

Born in January 2005, based on an idea of Marco Mancuso, art critic and curator, the project, which has been a multi-platform project (portal, magazine, podcast, newsletter and agency) right from the very beginning, has been characterised by a strong will to work within the net and by the sharing and mix of knowledge and disciplines. Its core depends also on a strong desire to create a vast network in Italy of professional people and artists, working together to give life to it and to enhance it, a large and complex editorial and cultural project strongly linked to contemporaneousness.

Thanks to the experience and professionalism of the first artists and collaborators involved in the project, Digicult (http://www.digicult.it/en/) has been able to expand and enrich itself, on the one hand, letting the new generation of reviewers, curators and journalists who work in Italy in the fields of art, design, society and technology congregate; on the other, interacting with various Institutions, Festivals, Cultural Centres, Exhibition Centres and Academies both in Italy and internationally in order to promote curatorial and artistic projects.

Digicult today is a cultural platform, both on-line and off-line, firmly based on the active participation of more than 40 professional people, representing the first broad network, in Italy, made up of journalists, curators, reviewers and artists who work in the field of digital art and culture. It is a web-portal, updated daily, with news and analyses regarding the world of the new media art. In it there are calls for artists, reviews, theoretical texts and articles, relevant links and artistic projects. It is a project deeply connected to the net and the web 2.0 dynamics which is also related to some Rss Feed available for the users as well as some tools like Facebook, Flicker, Delicious, Vimeo, Twitter and LinkedIn.

Digicult is also the editor of Digimag (http://www.digicult.it/digimag_eng/), a monthly magazine which covers some artistic and cultural issues like internet art, hacktivism, video-art, electronic music, audio-video, design, art and science, new media, software art and performing art, as relevant subjects of its critical and journalistic approach.

Digicult produces a podcast of electronic music and audiovisuals, Digipod (http://www.digicult.it/podcast/). It is related to the net-labels world as well as the one of on-line independent audiovisual production. It has its own international Diginews newsletter system.

Digicult is, moreover, involved in some collateral activities managed by Digimade (http://www.digicult.it/Agency/). Through its press-office it is able to activate media partnerships for festivals and shows, both nationally and internationally, thanks to the huge amount of contacts in the field of contemporary art, digital art and design, as well as some special projects and curatorships in Italy and abroad. Digimade is the tool with which Digicult, involving each time every single member of the network, works on specific curatorial projects like events, exhibitions, seminars, workshops and festivals as well as editorial projects of catalogues and articles. It updates its professional contacts in Italy as well as abroad day by day

"...The solution to the precarious question is not going to be found in the return to the old speculative, overindebted, overdeveloped, ecocidal, supremely unequal consumer economy of yore, the very same that has been responsible for the lion's share of greenhouse emissions deposited in the atmosphere over the last three decades, but in the fight for a new economic and welfare system built around the social and environmental needs of the precarious strata of society, ensuring that each human being on Earth is entitled to the same share of carbon emissions....Redistribution of wealth and power toward the precarious, growth of immaterial knowledge, cultural enrichment of society and massive expansion of leisure are fundamental social conditions for the horizontal, open-source design of a resilient postcapitalist society, freeing the time to pursue ecohacktive and permacultural activities, giving the time back to precarized and frightened people to think collectively about their own future, also cutting the need for quick consumption and instant satisfaction among precarious service and knowledge workers in the currently time-starved global society"

Alex Foti, from "Climate Justice Action: precarious united for climate action"

"...When I lived in Holland I tried to make a medialab. I find the idea of a
medialab connected to a fixed place is a bit archaic, a bit dated.
Personally, I don't want to criticise other forms of practice in medialabs,
but I'm very interested in transitory situations. I'm interested in creating
multi-use areas that are quick and temporarily autonomous. In creating a
transitory situation like "let's do something quick, in on week", you must
not worry about the problem of being continuously eco-friendly or about
long-term issues. For example, in the 80's there were many initiatives, now
they have stopped and they keep sucking up locations, money and oxygen. I've
seen a lot of situations like these and they bore me, as well as being a
complete waste. I believe that to create temporarily autonomous situations
is more exciting. It's a way to use the best elements of existing
organisations, to take portions of them, configure them and make the next
step...".

:::QUANDO L'OCCHIO TREMA. IL FLICKER TRA CINEMA, VIDEO E DIGITALE:::
When the eye flickers: the flicker technique in cinema, video and digital

Videoscreening curated by Mario Gorni (Careof DOCVA) and Claudia D’Alonzo (Digicult)

-------------------------

Inauguration on Thursday September 17, 2009 at 5:30pm
at DOCVA Documentation Center for Visual Arts, via Procaccini 4, Milan

with Claudia D’Alonzo, Elisa Gattarossa, Mario Gorni, Marco Mancuso, otolab

Videos on show from September 17 to September 26, 2009 from 3.00pm to 7.00pm

-------------------------

On Thursday September 17 at 6.00pm Careof DOCVA, presents Quando l’occhio trema - il flicker tra cinema, video e digitale (When the eye flickers - the flicker technique in cinema, video and digital), videoscreening curated by Claudia D’Alonzo and Mario Gorni, in cooperation with Invideo and Digicult. On occasion of the inauguration and open house meeting, Claudia D’Alonzo from the network Digicult; Elisa Gattarossa from Invideo; Mario Gorni, director of Careof DOCVA; Marco Mancuso, director of Digicult; otolab, Milanese collective of audiovisual experimentation will discuss the topic of ‘flicker’.

Quando l’occhio trema (When the eye flickers) - based on the 1989 homonymous film by Paolo Gioli - a historical and methodological journey on the use of the flicker technique through a selection of ten works coming from the DOCVA and Invideo video archives, together with works by authors partaking in the Digicult international network.

The ‘flicker’ technique is used in several forms of art, experimental motion picture cinema, light installation, analogical video and audiovisual digital video. Such technique is based on a specific perception phenomenon. Normally the perception of a moving image occurs at a frequency of 24 frames per second. If we diminish such frequency to 6/18 frames, we elicit a visual flickering that corresponds to a direct stimulation of the optic nerve, a proto-vision, where the visual rhythm directly synchronizes with our brainwaves.

The flicker phenomenon falls within a category that Edmund Husserl defines as perceptive ambiguity, because it enables us to transcend conventional knowledge to perceive and relate to reality through the new possibilities produced by a destabilization of our automated perception, which is, in this case, violent, at times even traumatic.
The flicker technique allows both for a phenomenological investigation, the anomalous stimulation of our perceptive apparatus, and for a structural analysis of the codes of the moving image.

The show Quando l’occhio trema, proposes a partial reconstruction of the historical journey of this artistic experimentation through historic cinema and video authors and digital video authors from the contemporary scene: Claudio Ambrosini, ape5+miky ry, Scott Arford, Alessandrà Arnò, Gerard Cairaschi, Paolo Chiasera, Antonin De Bemels, Thorsten Fleisch, Paolo Gioli, Graw & Bockler, Granular Synthesis (Kurt Hentschläger/Ulf Langheinrich), Girts Korps, otolab, Steina and Woody Vasulka.

Thanks to the cooperation between Archivio DOCVA, Archivio INVIDEO and Digicult, Quando l’occhio trema takes on the shape of a research, which aims to use the material from the archive as a dynamic tool that enables the connections and exchanges that are necessary to draw a comparison between the historical experience in audiovisual experimentation and the developments achieved by contemporary authors.
Such comparison is vital both to retrieve, preserve and make the most of a significant historical heritage, that is the experimental audiovisual production, but also, and above all, to establish the scientific parameters that enable the interpretation and study of a heterogeneous and manifold artistic digital production.

-------------------------

The non-profit organization Careof has been promoting the Italian and international contemporary artistic research, granting great attention to the emerging generations. Over its 20 years of activity it has organized and hosted more than 200 personal and collective shows, taking foot as a very dynamic centre for artistic experimentation. Through the organization of workshops, seminars and conferences, Careof has given birth to an information circuit and to a platform for artists, critics, curators and the public. In cooperation with the association Viafarini, Careof organizes and manages the DOCVA Documentation Center for Visual Arts, a documentation centre for visual arts, currently one of the most advanced in Italy for the computerization and diffusion of contemporary art. The centre consists of: Library specializing in visual arts, Video Archive, Portfolio Archive, ArtBox databank.

Invideo - Internazionale di video e cinema oltre (International Exhibition of Video Art and Cinema Beyond)­- has been organized in Milan by A.I.A.C.E. since 1990. It is the only festival in Italy where the most important international works in the field of art video and research are presented every year. Invideo is also a permanent archive devoted to the artistic "non-fiction", which has been acquired through an in-depth and wide-reaching research and analysis among the most meaningful Italian and international works.

"...Move forward, please think of your own creative ways to help educate the world about what is going on Iran and to express support directly to the people in Iran. The more creative the greater the chance that it "goes viral", but even if it doesn't just educating one person and inspiring them to action would be worth the effort. After all, what happens in Iran affects the entire Middle East and what happens in this region affects the entire world order. The Iranian Revolution in 1979 sparked dozens of Islamist movements. Imagine if this same Iranian regime was motivated to become more open and free because of people's efforts all over the world, imagine what the effect would be on other repressive regimes..."

Sina Payman, from "Persepolis 2.0: creative support to Iran" by Marco Mancuso
