NeMe
Since the beginning
Works in Limassol Cyprus

BIO
NeMe is a non profit, non government, Cyprus registered cultural organisation founded in November 2004. NeMe works on two platforms - a virtual and an itinerant one - and focuses on contemporary theories and their intersection with the arts.

NeMe's itinerant platform, the "IMCA" (Independent Museum of Contemporary Art) presents NeMe projects which include, exhibitions, performances, new media events, symposia and archives. The form of the IMCA is determined as a practice or process by the nature of each project with the notion of the exhibition "space" being constantly revised and redefined.

NeMe's virtual platform resides in two sites:

* http://www.neme.org
* http://neme-imca.org

http://www.neme.org provides a service by publishing critical texts and filtered cultural information which includes arts news calls as well as providing a forum for public discussion. http://neme-imca.org publishes a documentation of all NeMe activities.

Tele-Agency by Edward A. Shanken


NeMe has secured 2 texts by Edward A. Shanken. The first, Tele-Agency: Telematics, Telerobotics, and the Art of Meaning can now be found on:
http://neme.org/main/620/tele-agency

Excerpt: The human and political implications of agency, especially with respect to technology, demand that agency be problematized as it relates to telematics and telerobotics. By analyzing artworks that use these telecommunications technologies, it is possible to differentiate between various models of agency and suggest their epistemological and ontological implications.

the new new


What is new about video art in the twenty-first century? This question underpins my enquiry into the new approaches and modes of practice that have changed both the ways in which recent video art has experienced a hybridisation of other influences - such as the music video clip, the computer game, and cinema - and to how this is positioned through Media Arts and elsewhere...

Presenting and Preserving New Media


Following our publication of Steve Dietz' text: "Collecting New Media Art: Just Like Anything Else, Only Different" http://neme.org/main/524/collecting-new-media-art

we have now secured Christiane Paul's "Challenges for a Ubiquitous Museum: Presenting and Preserving New Media" which we have published on
http://neme.org/main/571/preserving-new-media

Christiane writes: The characteristics of the digital medium pose numerous challenges to the traditional art world, ranging from presentation to collection and preservation. For the longest time, museums, galleries and the art world and art market in general have been mostly "objectoriented" and have configured their framework and infrastructure to accommodate the presentation and preservation of the static art object. The characteristics of so-called new media art have introduced a shift from the object to process: as an inherently time-based, dynamic, interactive, collaborative, customizable and variable art form, digital art resists "objectification" and has changed traditional notions of the "art object."...
