Edited by Mauro Ceolin, Claudio Musso

The book has the double function of collecting and continue the experience PageRank#CMdc born on the occasion of an interview between the two curators published on Digimag. PageRank # CMdc represents a new stage of contemporaryNaturalism, the project with which Mauro Ceolin intended to build a line of research that has the ability to incorporate a variety of discourses, languages ​​and meta-languages. Since 2006, in fact, built a path in progress based on the logics of the catalog and archive to highlight the existence of a biology of the contemporary imagery. The action is developed in three phases: prologue, performance, documentation. This volume contains the documentation for all phases of the project, including an interview with Mauro Ceolin by Pau Waelder and an unpublished text by Claudio Musso

Connecting Havana
Edited by Lucrezia Cippitelli

With texts by Mirian Real Arci, Lucrezia Cippitelli, Adolfo Cabrera Perez, Minerva Romero Regalado, Connecting Havana is a research and educational project developed in Havana (Cuba) between September 2010 and September 2011, curated by Lucrezia Cippitelli with Miguel Petchkovsky/TIME_FRAME/Netherland Media Art Institute. The project has been developed as a long-term research and educational program, focused on time-based and media art from a South/South perspective. Focusing on time-based and media art as tool of self-representation and critical process of creation and participation, Connecting Havana had the chance to visit and involve local creativity, discovering a local context of artists and producers who use the languages of contemporary creation as tool of social interaction, political intervention, cultural critique. Not calling themselves dissidents, not questioning the revolutionary history of the Country, sometimes working within or with institutions. This publication is not a simple documentation of the process, but primarily aims to introduce the work of the artists who participated: a general survey of critical perspectives on contemporary art practices in Havana from the very last years.

The Materiality of the Ephemeral: The Identity of Live Audiovisual Performance, Documentation and Memory Construction
Edited by Dr. Ana Carvalho

The work presented here proposes a theoretical model to document audiovisual live performance in collaborative environments. Given its ephemeral features (as flux) and not objectual (or stable), vive audiovisual performance puts to the front peculiar questions regarding contemporary documentation. The formulation of a conceptual documentation model develops from a historical and theoretical framework that defines the identity of the practices, the artists and community through dynamics of affectation. The model, unique and specific, serves the purpose to document the creative process, the performative moment and community gatherings.
