Video Vortex: Responses to YouTube

Fri 05.10.2007 // 11:00 - 19:00

Over the past years the moving image has claimed an increasingly  
prominent place on the internet. Thanks to a wide range of  
technologies and web applications it has become possible, not only to  
record and distribute video, but to edit and remix it on-line as  
well. With this world of possibilities within reach of a multitude of  
social actors, the potential of video as a personal means of  
expression has arrived at a totally new dimension. How is this  
potential being used? How do artists and activists react to the  
popularity of YouTube and other ‘user-generated-content’ websites?  
What is the impact of the availability of massive on-line images and  
sound databases on aesthetics and narrativity? How is Cinema, as an  
art form and experience, influenced by the development of widely  
spreading internet practices? What does YouTube tell us about the  
state of art in visual culture? And how does the participation  
culture of video-sharing and vlogging reach some degree of autonomy  
and diversity, escaping the laws of the mass media and the strong  
grip of media conglomerates?

This Video Vortex conference is the first in a series of  
international events, aimed at critical research and reflection  
surrounding the production and distribution of on-line video content,  
at the instigation of the Institute of Network Cultures (INC).

Speakers: Johan Grimonprez, Peter Horvath, Lev Manovich, Adrian  
Miles, Tomas Rawlings & Ana Kronschnabl, Simon Ruschmeyer, Keith  
Sanborn, Peter Westenberg

Introduced by Geert Lovink. Moderated by Sabine Niederer.

Co-production with Institute of Network Cultures (INC)
www.networkcultures.org

The Conference will be followed by a selection of exceptional, witty  
and provoking Internet videos, compiled for the occassion by some of  
our guests.

Media, Memory and the Archive

Sat 06.10.2007 // 11:00 – 19:00

How will generations after us look back on artistic production of the  
20th and 21st centuries? Media formats, operating systems, software  
and hardware, browsers and the internet as we know it today will have  
evolved beyond recognition, both in shape and in use. What strategies  
might be used to transpose technology-based works, variable, hybrid  
and ephemeral by nature, to an unknown and unpredictable future? How  
can intent, context and experience be recorded and permanently  
interpreted? The archiving process does not merely represent an  
attempt to preserve some notions, it also implicates that others will  
be forgotten. What is relevant for preservation? What is the impact  
of used models, technical structures and tools on the construction of  
cultural memory? How does information travel through time, now that  
the world is being (re)presented and organised more and more as a  
database, dynamic and networked? How will museums and other memory  
institutions cope with these new paradigms and what is the role media  
artists and we ourselves might have in the structuring of public memory?

Speakers: Josephine Bosma, Jean-François Blanchette, Steve Dietz,  
Wolfgang Ernst, Charlie Gere, Oliver Grau, Richard Rinehart

Moderated by Marleen Wynants (CROSSTALKS, VUB)

Co-production with PACKED
