The Netherlands Media Art Institute announces the one-day symposium Positions in flux: On the changing role of the artist and institution in the networked society. The symposium will center on some of the major parameters for the current and future development of contemporary media art. In particular it will reflect on the aspect of cultural sustainability of art projects, art and technology initiatives and art curating.

Positions in flux will give floor to international artists, theoreticians, critics, cultural producers and aims to initiate a truly critical debate. The symposium is designed for a broad audience working in the field of contemporary culture and art, with a desire to understand the future and how to respond to these changes on an artistic or institutional level. The symposium takes the form of three interlinked panels.

Art goes politics
Can art contribute to the solution of global and local problems such as religious conflicts, environmental or social crisis? Or is art constrained to raising awareness only? Should art become an agency for political and social affairs at all? How to successfully implement and conduct art projects in zones of crisis?

New territories and cultures of the digital
This panel looks in particular at young art initiatives and media art production in East Europe, the Middle East, Africa and South America. Which specific local situations shape these initiatives? And do they share common experiences, challenges and strategies? What kind of art arises from these new nodes on the digital map?

Open Source - A scheme for production and curating?
The open source movement is driven by the idea of collective, process-based, sustainable production of software. Can this scheme be applied to the production of artworks or exhibitions even? Is there a new role model for both the artist and the curator in the future? Which (economic) value does expertise have in open source production?
