ISEA2011 Istanbul - proposals for panels, artworks, papers and workshops from artists, scientists and academics

Thu Aug 05, 2010 00:00 - Thu Aug 05, 2010


ISEA2011 Istanbul is the international festival of new media, electronic and digital arts. The 17th International Symposium on Electronic Art, a leading world conference and exhibition event for art, media and technology, is scheduled for September 14 to 21, 2011 in Istanbul, Turkey. The ISEA2011 Istanbul exhibition will coincide with the Istanbul Biennial and will provide a fantastic opportunity to showcase contemporary new media arts.

We invite proposals for panels, artworks, papers and workshops from artists, scientists and academics interested in how the digital and electronic media are re-shaping contemporary society and behaviors.

ISEA2011 Istanbul will be open to proposals encompassing a large range of topics under the general theme of interdisciplinarity at the intersection of Art, Science and Technology.

It is our intention to appeal to the hard sciences and the humanities as well as the art community.

For this reason ISEA2011 Istanbul will host a large variety of thematic strands ranging from digital art to curatorial studies, from electronic media to digital architecture, from the intersection of art, science and technology to the concept of the digital city, from digital humanities to social media, from nanotechnology and art to urban ecologies, from transculturalism to mobile art, and more.


Speed, Dromology and Invisibility, Leonardo Electronic Almanac

Speed, Dromology and Invisibility, Leonardo Electronic Almanac

Deadline November 20, 2010

>From the futurist’s speed through contemporary dromology to the
disappearance of the human body? What are the future trajectories of a
continuous process of acceleration? Is the disappearance of the body
through artificial speed a process of invisibility or that of a
visibility through acceleration?

The instantaneous communication across Web 2.0 and the speed of
interactions has created the feeling of a contradiction between an
idea of constant presence and that of the disappearance of the body in
a constant trajectory of ‘self-dissemination.’ In 1909 the futurists
envisaged a new world and some of their far-fetched visionary ideas
have come to pass. What is the role that speed will play in the future
of humanity in the twenty-first century?

The Leonardo Electronic Almanac (LEA) is inviting proposals from
scientists interested in light, speed and invisibility, from artists,
critical theorists and academics in cultural studies and digital
humanities for an issue on these themes co-edited by Lanfranco Aceti
and Chris Townsend, Professor of Media Arts, Royal Holloway,
University of London. Scientists that work on issues related to speed
and invisibility, media theoreticians, historians, artists that
represent in their work the high speed of life and contemporary
society are particularly welcome to submit proposals for

Mail Nothing to the Tate Modern

Have you made sure that the Tate can reuse these empty boxes after the weekend? Or are you sending them all back to NYC for archiving?

If they are simply recycled, the Tate will have to pay to do that - taking money away from elsewhere.
