McGill University -- Free & Open to the public.
 
[français ci-dessous]

A one day symposium on technology, art and society. Organised by the [CTRL] collective, the Technology, Art, Society Symposium features keynote speaker McKenzie Wark (New School, NYU), whom we are pleased to say will be presenting on the 'gamespace of everyday life in the rat race of free-market society'; a panel discussion with local artists and activists on democracy, art and media; and an evening cabaret of video-art, new media and electronic music performance presented by UpgradeMTL. All events are free & open to the public. Events at McGill are in English. Organised by Anna Feigenbaum, Horea Avram and tobias c. van Veen of [CTRL].

:: Mission :: When conducting research into media, ethics and communications, critical scholarship often takes as its object local communities and artistic practices as it studies the effects of technology upon society. It is rare, however, that representatives from community-based technology practices, curators and artists in the technology arts, and scholars in disciplines of communication, information and media have the opportunity to engage each other in dialogue and practice. In the spirit of opening dialogue brought about by the study and practices of media, ethics and communications, [CTRL] proposes to spark a dynamic encounter between these fields by bringing together artists, community members and scholars in a one-day symposium and art event dedicated to Technology, Art and Society.
The TAS Symposium seeks to combine artistic, academic and community practices that undermine borders between genres and disciplines. We seek to foster a transdisciplinary, creative environment in which we can construct collective visions for democratizing technology within communities while cultivating the political and ethical potential of artistic practice. At the same time, and in recognition of Wark's introduction of 'Gamer Theory', the question is posed if our time is not the time of 'politics under fire': a time in which reactionary forces abound in worldwide gamespace with devastating consequence.

:: la politique prise d'assaut ::

Une journée de symposium sur la technologie, l¹art et la société. Organisé par le collectif [CTRL], le Symposium Technologie, Art et Société (TAS) a le plaisir d¹accueillir comme conférencier McKenzie Wark (New School, NYU), qui offrira une présentation sur 'l¹espace-jeu  (gamespace) du quotidien dans la course effrénée de la société du  libre-marché¹; un panel d¹artistes locaux et d¹activistes de la démocratie, des arts et des médias; et une soirée cabaret de  vidéo-art, de nouveaux médias et de performances de musique  électronique présentée par UpgradeMTL. Tous les événements sont gratuits et ouverts au public. Le symposium ayant lieu à l¹université McGill se déroule en anglais. Le tout est organisé par Anna  Feigenbaum, Horea Avram et tobias c. van Veen du collectif [CTRL].

:: Mandat :: La recherche académique critique, lorsqu¹elle porte sur les médias, l¹éthique et les communications, prend souvent comme objet d¹étude les communautés locales et les pratiques artistique afin d¹étudier les effets de la technologie sur le société. Il est pourtant rare que des représentants issus des pratiques technologiques  communautaires, des artistes et commissaires des arts technologiques et des chercheurs dans les domaines de la communication, de l¹information et des médias aient l¹occasion de s¹interpeller dans le dialogue et dans la pratique. Afin d¹ouvrir le dialogue émergeant de l¹étude et de la pratique des médias, de l¹éthique et des  communications, le collectif [CTRL] propose de provoquer une rencontre  dynamique entre ces domaines en réunissant des artistes, des membres de la communauté et des chercheurs lors d¹un symposium d¹une journée et d¹un événement artistique dédies à la Technologie, l¹Art et la Société.
Le Symposium TAS a pour but de combiner les pratiques artistique, académique et communautaire qui rejettent les frontières entre les genres et les disciplines. Nous voulons bâtir un  environnement transdisciplinaire et créatif dans lequel nous pouvons  forger des visions collectives afin de démocratiser la technologie au sein des communautés tout en cultivant le potentiel politique et éthique de la pratique artistique. Toutefois, inspirés de l¹introduction du livre ŒGamer Theory¹ de Wark, la question se pose quant à la possibilité que nous vivions une période où Œla politique est prise d¹assaut¹: une période où des forces réactionnaires abondent dans un espace-jeu global menant à des conséquences dévastatrices.

Professor of Cultural and Media Studies at Lang College, New School University. Wark is the author of several books, most recently Dispositions and A Hacker Manifesto (Harvard UP, 2007). Ever get the feeling that life's a game with changing rules and no clear sides, one you are compelled to play yet cannot win? Welcome to gamespace. Gamer Theory uncovers the significance of games in the gap between the near-perfection of actual games and the highly imperfect gamespace of everyday life in the rat race of free-market society.

/  Professeur de Cultural and Media Studies au Lang College, New School University. Wark est l'auteur de nombreux livres, dont récemment Dispositions et A Hacker Manifesto (Harvard UP, 2007). Avez-vous parfois l'impression que la vie et un jeu dont les règles changent continuellement et les camps sont flous, un jeu qui vous attire, mais dont vous ne pouvez être le vainqueur? Bienvenue à l'espace-jeu ('gamespace'). La théorie du gamer traite de la signification des jeux dans le fossé entre la quasi-perfection des jeux et l'extrême imperfection de l'espace-jeu du quotidien dans la course à rats de la société du libre-marché.
