KnowledgeLab9:Art - Technology, Authorship, Ways of Living and Art Market
5th - 7th October, 2007
Institute for Advanced Studies, Lancaster University, North West England.

We welcome you to attend the Knowledgelab9:Art, a weekend gathering for collaborative and creative reflection. If you are unable to attend the whole weekend or are particularly interested in a single presentation then please come along to individual events.

For further information on locations, attendance conditions, details on participators, please refer to the wiki:
we are updating it regularly.
This knowledge lab will address art and ways of critically thinking about our world. Within this broad region of enquiry, the lab will encompass notions of life and art as a political commitment, the influence art can exert in politics and how political ideas in turn influence art. It will also address new ways of making art and how this relates to technologies and social changes, and the use of art as an anti-capitalist means to change and fight the system.
Like previous knowledge labs the day will be divided into four streams.

TECHNOLOGY In this stream the discussion will centre around free software, DIY, art spaces and interfaces.
WAYS OF LIVING This stream concerns process, moment, Artivism and performance.
AUTHORSHIP This stream will consider copy rights, ownership, patenting, and appropriation.
THE ART MARKET The fourth stream is intended to raise issues concerning(new ways of) curating, spaces (physical and virtual) to show art, and ways of making money: Marketing, the means of production, market forces and anti-market forces, the art market, and art and ethics.

second call for papers

You might have already heard of, or even already be a
contributor to, the VJ Theory project.
If you haven't then the project falls into two areas:
samples of work from the forthcoming book and the
project/community which lives at:

This project intends to develop a community actively
discussing and reflecting on philosophy and theory
related with Vjing and realtime interaction.

It is apparent, during workshops and discussions at
Festivals and symposia, that practitioners of both
VJing and Interactive Installations will quickly move
on from problems with the practicalities of production
to more complex ideas of how and why the process has,
for example, significance for the viewer.

There is a lack of written texts on the philosophies
and theories related with VJing and realtime

This project and the associated book, aim to bring
together work by some of the foremost practitioners
and academics in the field.

We aim to produce a body of work which, for the first
time, will address these theoretical issues and place
the practices of VJing and Interactive Installation,
into a useful context.

Although we have received an excellent response in
contributions for the book, there are also areas that,
we as editors, feel need to be developed more.

Areas we still need material:

Politics (activism, guerrilla, community focused
realtime interaction and performance)
Intellectual property
DIY culture
Realtime interaction and performance as developing
tools (pd/GEM/Arduino or MAX/MSP/Jitter as used in
performance programming for example)

If you know of any text which address these areas in
relation to realtime interaction (either published or
not) then please let us know.

We also welcome other contributions you might have to
the content of the web site

We are accepting full texts, between 3000 and 5000
Deadline for submissions: 31st August
