A Brief History of Networked Art Production

21 May 2015, 17:00 - 19:00

Entitled A Brief History of Networked Art Production, this roundtable seeks to explore and analyze productions and practices that use remote transmission as a vehicle and medium of artistic expression.

The circulation of data involves several creative forms and movements that will be examined across the spectrum of history. Thus, the speakers will auscultate, from the 1960s to today, radio art, Fluxus, mail art, as well as the wide field of networked experiences opened up by contemporary research on web and net art, telematics, collective writing, robotics, etc. In an era where ubiquity and universal connectivity eclipses local action, the goal of this event will be to consider the multiplicity of networks not only in terms of individuals, places and machines, but also in terms of the geographic, political, social and economic realities that constitute them. 

Moderator: Esther Bourdages

Panelists: Anna Friz, André Éric Létourneau, Christopher Haworth
