Dear List,

I'm forwarding this because we met Shaina and Ashok at ISEA, and I 
think that they both have a particularly sophisticated understanding of 
public space in relation to technology, which could inform this month's 
theme a lot.

Yours

Beryl

> CAMP is a new city-based initiative around art, media and technology 
> practices, in collaboration with the Khoj International Artists 
> Association.
>  
> www.camputer.org
>
> CAMP's founding members are:
>
> Shaina Anand, filmmaker, artist and media activist, founder of 
> www.chitrakarkhana.net
>
> Sanjay Bhangar, who trained in indymedia and urban studies, now works 
> as an independent web developer and technology writer.
>
> Ashok Sukumaran, who trained as an architect and artist, and now 
> develops speculative technical and conceptual projects. http://0ut.in
>
> The evening consists of an extended screening-cum-talk by the CAMP 
> initiators, as an introduction to the context, politics and practices 
> that CAMP will promote. This includes a discussion of Chitrakarkhana's 
> ongoing work with alternative cable TV and CCTV systems, a social 
> history of the internet in Bombay as told by Sanjay Bhangar, and Ashok 
> Sukumaran's recent projects around electrical redistribution, and 
> design. They will also discuss the CAMP program for this year, and 
> invite participation in various forms.
>  
> The program will be interrupted by refreshments.

> About CAMP:
>
> CAMP is a platform to organise, and then to do, things that are 
> critical, egalitarian and inspirational, within the city. It seeks to 
> promote such artistic and media practices that build interfaces 
> between themselves and urban activities at various scales. This 
> project is being undertaken with a broad shared experience (among CAMP 
> members, its advisors and peers) of the "digital moment" of the past 
> decade.  CAMP promises bold interpretations of current socio-economic 
> and technology contexts, and their various micro-political 
> implications.
>
> CAMP will begin its relationship with various Mumbai publics through 
> 'weekends', fortnightly events that look intensively at specific 
> histories, futures, and areas of multi-disciplinary collaboration. For 
> example there are planned weekends around the history of broadcast as 
> an artistic medium, on the art market, on building technological 
> "confidence", on censorship, on local-area networks, on various kinds 
> of maps, rooftop "real-estate" surveys and so on, mostly with an 
> orientation towards practitioners and projects.
>
> While CAMP is beginning with such small-scale activities, it also 
> seeds two long term projects:
>
> a) New Documentary: On the future of the documentary image, in times 
> of video's material abundance.To produce, receive and redistribute 
> video by adopting a range of existing technigues and technologies. 
> This is related to chitrakarkhana's ongoing work, and will address a 
> range of artistic, ethical and pragmatic questions around video.
>
> b) On Design: on what "making things for others" means now, when you- 
> and i- can both seemingly contribute.  The project will engage with 
> questions of "participation" and of how knowledge moves across 
> different forms, through institutional and pedagogic interventions 
> into the broad field of activity presently known as Design.
>
> And finally, on its name: CAMP has various possible "backronyms", a 
> large number in fact. This came from our inability to claim a singular 
> identity within a field of ideas, to say that this and not that, is 
> what will actually happen with CAMP. For more see  
> www.camputer.org/?acronyms=many
