Theme of the month February 08
Writing about the ephemeral / the 'live' / the broadcast

Beyond issues of physical preservation, the written record, document or
press review is particularly important for ephemeral, live or broadcast
works. But how does one write about/criticise something that's never
the same twice?

What are the modes curators use for the documentation of new media art?
Re-imagination; information; writing that in one way or the other
transmits the various experiences of the work? Can it be argued that
the life of a work consists precisely in the ways it departs from its
initial point/source or concept? And if it does so how do the different
afterlives, critiques and vocabularies associated with media contribute
to or resist the work?

What framing systems emerge with forms of writing other than the
traditional single-authored critical text (e.g. dialogue based,
blogging, hypertext)? What framing systems are becoming more peripheral
(e.g. traditional art criticism)? Does a particular work/practice need
a particular mode of text to be understood or re-enacted? Can a live
work be re-imagined by certain modes of preserving it? Does the archive
the re-broadcast or the re-enactment then become more important than
the work?

This Feb theme leads up to the exhibition Broadcast Yourself,
co-curated by Sarah Cook and Kathy Rae Huffman, which includes several
works that document artist-led live broadcast events. (such as: Van
Gogh TV; Kit Galloway and Sherrie Rabinowitz, Hole in Space, 1980;
Karen Guthrie and Nina Pope's co-curated project TV Swansong, 2002;
Alistair Gentry's Nowhere Planes, 2004). The exhibition opens at the
Hatton Gallery, Newcastle, on February 28 as part of the AV festival
(www.avfest.co.uk).

This spring CRUMB also welcomes New York based new media art curator,
archivist and writer, Caitlin Jones for research and an event as part
of The Inspiring Internationalists
programme(http://inspiringinternationalists.wordpress.com/). Caitlin's
focus will be on issues of documentation in relation to electronic and
ephemeral artworks. At her workshop in Newcastle on March 5, she will
discuss practicalities, tools and policies that emerge with the fast
increasing number of 'storage systems'.
