Call for papers

hothaus series is a programme of seminars that will provide a platform to
discuss current and pertinent issues within media arts practice and theory.

The intention of the series is to bring together artists, theorists and arts
professionals to investigate emerging working practices and artforms.  The
exploration of the use of technology within artistic practice, interaction
and participation, emergence, curation, distribution and interdisciplinarity
will run as key themes and issues throughout the series.

The hothaus series was piloted in October 2003.  This seminar, reinvention,
explored the artistic appropriation of technologies and the roles of
creativity and authorship.  Speakers included Jem Finer, James Wallbank,
Brian Duffy, Paul Granjon, Paul Ramirez Jonas and Nina Pope.  The day was
chaired by Emma Posey and included a performance by Paul Granjon.

Three further seminars have been programmed for 2004/5 and three broad
thematics have been identified to investigate the cross-currents within
media arts.

… Progression     ­ 2 October 2004
… Space         ­ 4 December 2004
… Curation         ­ 29 January 2005

We are keen for the papers to examine new and under-explored areas of
research which will feed into a publication of the proceedings of the series
in 2005.

Below is a brief outline of areas we would like to investigate.  This is a
by no means a conclusive list, nor is it meant to be prescriptive.  However
it is a starting point and an indication of ideas we would like to explore.

… What is our understanding of the term Œnew¹ media?  What criteria do we
apply in order to preclude and include types of media?  How is the
theoretical framework and historical discourse around Œnew media¹
developing?  Is there an Œaccepted historical narrative¹ yet?

… Artists have been appropriating technologies for a number of years now.
How has this engagement across sectors led to an exchange of knowledge and
ideas and impacted on the development of technologies for commercial,
medical and engineering use?

… How does the use of technology within artistic practice impact on the
roles of authorship and creativity?

… Does the media arts festival still play a pivotal role in presenting
challenging media arts?  How does the UK fare in this kind of dissemination?

… Is the UK media arts scene less robust that its¹ European or American
counterparts?  

… How has the development of new media practice, in particular net-art,
influenced contemporary curation and presentation of media work?  How does
it challenge the role of the gallery in the presentation of media arts?
… What is the role of the media curator?  And to what extent should a media
curator understand technology as a tool?

… How has the field of curating changed as a result of new media art
practice?  Are these developments parallel in UK, Europe and US?

… How is contemporary art practice and curation embracing the physical and
virtual Œinterface¹ with which the audience can interact and engage with the
work?

… Has the web changed the working practices of curators?  What are the key
methodologies for researching and seeking new work?

… What makes for a successful presentation of net-art?  How is a Œnet¹
audience developed?

… What are the economic and political impacts of e-culture?

… Is an international familiarity with technology art that uses
technological consumables more accessible to a wider audience?

… What are the legal difficulties associated with interdisciplinary
practice?  The UK intellectual property laws are well suited to the
commercial sector but can be difficult to apply to the arts.
