MediaScope 2007: An Evening with Takuji Kogo.
Takuji Kogo founded Candy Factory, an alternative Yokohama gallery that operated from 1998 to 2000. He exploits the Internet to explore the meanings of globalization, especially through sites left deserted when the economy of multinational companies fails. Kogo playfully interlaces photography, animation, and sampled music, and he invites the participation of Web denizens. An Evening with Takuji Kogo is part of Out of the Internet, an international festival featuring cultural content emerging from the Asia Pacific regions. The project is realized through MAAP Multimedia Art Asia Pacific. Program approx. 90 min.
Monday, February 26, 8:00. Titus Theater 2.

Curators, conservators, registrars and media technical managers from New Art Trust, MoMA, SFMOMA, Tate, have formed a consortium to establish best practice guidelines for care of time-based media works of art (for example, video, slide, film, audio and computer-based installations). Effective approaches to the stewardship of electronic art rely on the blending of traditional museum practice with new modes of operating that derive from and respond to the complex nature of these installations.
