Call- The 10th International Conference on the Histories of Media Art, Science and Technology- RE:SOURCE [Deadline:30/1/2023]Marilena Pateraki
The 10th International Conference on the Histories of Media Art, Science and Technology – RE:SOURCE – will celebrate Media Art Histories and the role that its main agents have had in the multiple developments of art, science and technology with a focus on the past 60 years.
The main historical theme of the conference series – the histories of Media, Art, Science and Technology – will form the core of the event. This will be integrated by a number of sub themes including the following:
• Track 1: “Memory. How to create future memories: documentation, preservation and new technologies” (media art conservation, preservation, documentation, archival research, role of researchers in curatorial practice).
• Track 2: “Climate Actions, Environment and Public Humanities” (public media art that addresses climate emergency and social topics);
• Track 3: “Pioneers of Media art” (media art history pioneers past and present, artists, curators, new technologies);
• Track 4: “Media art history outside and inside the museum” (curation, museology, cinema, games, media arts museums); re-enacting of exhibitions, new technologies and curatorial practice.
The title ‘RE:SOURCE‘ refers to a sub theme specifically introduced in the MAH Venice edition of the conference series. This theme will be centred on the climate crisis and questions of ecological sustainability considered in all their ramifications analysed through the lenses of Media Art (History). It will be highlighted during one track of the conference (Track 2), and during a special PhD day event and workshop led by a duo formed by a senior chair and an emerging scholar, in collaboration with Ca’ Foscari and the Venice Center for the Humanities and Social Change.
RE:SOURCE will host four days of panels, workshops, exhibitions, performances, poster sessions and keynotes.
