EVENT

Performing Digital-Disruption // Cyberfeminist Bodies as Art, Action and Activism in the Digital Space


Dates:
Wed Nov 11, 2015 00:00 - Wed Nov 11, 2015

Location:
Brooklyn, New York
United States of America

Even though women constitute over half of visual artists and internet users today, they are still subjected to gender-based oppression online. The rise of cyberfeminism in the 1990's forged a path for artists to use new media technologies to challenge their present gender, race, and class structures. Faith Wilding, a significant artist in the cyberfeminist movement, argues that what was missing in the 90's was a collaboration between feminist theorists, feminist artists, and popular women's culture on the Internet. Now 25 years later, we are entering a new wave of cyber/digifeminism.

A.I.R. Gallery invites artists, curators, critics, and scholars to an exhibition and roundtable discussion on November 11. This will be an opportunity for us to rethink, challenge, and engage with our digital identities. We will examine how identity is performed through social media; how feminist artists use artistic practice to reclaim sexist digital spaces; and how new media influences feminist curatorial practices online. Invited artists include Daria Dorosh, Bang Geul Han, Amelia Marzec, and Marie Tomanová. The event will be curated by Gabriella Shypula from the Institute for Women's Leadership at Rutgers University.

"Performing Digital-Disruption" is sponsored by A.I.R. Gallery, the Institute for Women's Leadership at Rutgers University, and the Center for Women in the Arts and Humanities at Rutgers University.

OPPORTUNITY

RADICAL NETWORKS


Deadline:
Sat Aug 15, 2015 23:59

Location:
Brooklyn, New York
United States of America

From mass surveillance to the over-commercialization of the Internet, the technology that we depend upon for community and connection is being compromised. The recent accessibility of networking technology through devices such as the Raspberry Pi and software such as BATMAN Adv has made it affordable and possible for everyday citizens to learn how to design their own web servers and networks.

We are seeking speakers, panel proposals, demos, and workshop leaders who would like to teach or present their ideas on computer networks. Some possible topics include:

Offline networks
Mesh networks
Local networks for community
Experimental application of computer networks
Networks for political activism
Network security for ordinary citizens
Artistic use of computer networks
Personal networks
Bringing connectivity to rural areas
Experimental social networks
Control and ownership of networks
Ethical hacking
... and anything else that takes a fresh or critical look at how networks are used!

A.I.R. Gallery and 2013–14 Fellowship Artist, Amelia Marzec, are pleased to announce the second installment of “Women in Art and Technology,” an evening of presentations, discussion, and exhibitions.

Technology is the medium we use to communicate today, but we still experience a gender gap and a generation gap in terms of women’s participation in technology as a creative medium. A.I.R.

We’ll talk about women trailblazers in new media; enjoy presentations and exhibitions by digital artists; and hold a roundtable discussion to consider these issues within the larger context of the history of art. Our interest is in creating a platform for further conversations and participation at the first all female cooperative gallery in the United States.

EVENT

New American Sweatshop


Dates:
Thu Apr 03, 2014 18:00 - Sun Apr 27, 2014

Location:
Brooklyn, New York
United States of America

Imagine a future where the American dollar is worthless. To re-build the economy, citizens must use the only resource available: decades of post-consumer waste. With no way to afford expensive international electronics, they sift through products that have been subject to planned obsolescence for the possibility of working parts. The goal is to build a new communications infrastructure that is community-controlled and far from the prying eyes of any government.

The New American Sweatshop manifests itself as an installation that models a functioning manufacturing plant. It relies on intern labor to hand-build semi-functioning prototypes of what our technology could look like in the future. All supplies, furniture and uniforms are created from local salvaged goods.
